Switzerland’s capital city, you can’t visit the country and not the city! A holiday in Bern will leave you enraptured in a time travel capsule. Stone arcades, cobblestoned streets and the crisp air of the Al Stadt, you just stray away from your itinerary once the magic of Bern engulfs you.
As long as you’re planning your Bern tour, make sure you pass through the astronomical clock tower, Bear Park and Einstein’s house. There’s a tourist office at Bern’s train station in case you should need any tourist information. Whilst you’re soaking in the sights and sounds of Bern, take time off to see the city sans any travel guide.
Bern Travel Tips
Essential travel information and Bern tips for your visit
- Although Bern is considered a safe city in Switzerland, it is the capital city and is subjected to political demonstrations that require police intervention.
- Avoid making any eye contact or any confrontation with groups of drunken people at night, especially around the railway station.
- The police in Bern are known to stop tourists and ask for identification; carry a copy of your visa, passport and hotel card/reservation on you at all times to avoid an unpleasant run-in with the police.
