  • Be careful of the metros going around. So many shops in the area and nice ambience .

  • Great city to visit, super walkable. Be sure to see the bears. Was there in Oct. was a bit chilly of course. But most of the old town has covered side walks to keep you out of the elements. A must see in Switzerland.

  • Best place in Europe. Beautiful old city that's still intact. The arcades are great when it's raining. It's super walkable. The shops are nice. It's on a hill so once you walk down from the train station, it isn't so fun walking back up, but the trams are around regularly. At the bottom of the city is the bear park.

  • So well preserved old city, wonderful view from rose garden

  • Adorable city, I recommend.
