Hello Simon

Looks like you have found Mr. Cleaner.

Beside of deleting sidewalks all over the place, the person was as well
deleting Essort's Gartenwirtschaft (tagged as usual for Gartenwirtschaft
as Biergarten)

Thx, for your efforts.

cheeers, h.

PS In regards to sidewalks, I'll try to do them as I did them here


Means, sidewalk tagged like:


ex. https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/288833859

and crossigs or streets crossing the sidewalk tagged accordingly

Most of the sidewalks in Bern can be seen on the Orthofotos of the Bern
Vermessungsamt or even better in reality on the spot.
