Brunngasse was a semi-circular street on the north edge of the city, while Herrengasse was on the south side of the city.
During the first half of the thirteenth century two additional streets (Brunngasse and Herrengasse) were added.
The long, narrow shape of the peninsula made the city develop as several long, parallel rows of houses.
The only major cross streets (going north and south) developed along the city walls, which were moved to allow the city to expand.
This settlement was abandoned during the second century AD.
From that time until the founding of Bern the area remained sparsely settled.
