Travelling to Münsingen
The closest airports are Zürich (ZRH) and Basel (BSL). Münsingen can be reached by train with a change in Bern in less than two hours from each airport. Hotels can be found in Bern (less than 15 minutes away by train). In Münsingen, the cemetery is a 15 minute walk from the train station (1 km), and the Schlossgut is a few minutes walk (250 m) from the train station.
It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my father, Dietrich Fischer. He passed peacefully on Sunday 18 October at 1:20pm surrounded by family and his favorite music.
My father was famous for his jokes, he loved to make people laugh. It might be difficult now, but I’m sure he expects us to get back to laughing again quite soon.
Dietrich’s funeral and memorial service will be held on Monday 2 November 2015 at 10:30 in Münsingen, Switzerland, his birthplace and childhood hometown. More details will be posted shortly.
“Our dear friend and TFF Associate since 1985, Professor Dietrich Fischer, died today… Christina and I are very sad tonight.
