The aim of this article is to qualitatively examine and reconstruct the culture of violence which was practised in and around Bern by predominantly young men in the second half of the 19th century. This will be undertaken by employing a method of cultural analysis. The occurrence of violence in public spaces was determined by certain actors, places, times and cultural patterns of action. In these instances, fighting was an end in itself, and was carried out without the aim of injuring the opponent. From a sociological perspective, this specific form of violence can be understood to be a kind of game.
