I've mentioned this before-----Switzerland has four official languages: French (spoken in the southern part of the country), German (in the northern part), Italian (in the eastern part) and Romansh (spoken by about 35,000 Swiss in a mountain area). Parts of Switzerland straddle between two regions and so some cities and towns are officially bilingual. The medieval town of Murten (German) or Morat in French with a population of 8,000 is one of those. Situated on a hill overlooking Lake Murten/Morat this walled-in medieval gem is a magnet for tour buses. One of the city gates.
Castle in town center.
