Absolutely spectacular, what a beautiful old city, I fell in love with every aspect of this place, the architecture, the river, the parks. This is a must visit if in Switzerland. Easy to visit the Alps from Bern as well by car.

Don’t hesitate to go and visit the old town of Bern, beautiful in all seasons! The arches and the shops are just lovely to walk along. Don’t miss the Bern Minster and the Einstein Muséum.

If you like to wait an incredibly long time to eat nothing more than an average pizza (average for Switzerland not for Italy...) and meet a boss who don’t accept criticism...then you should go in this place.

This is a very nice area to tour and shop. There are covered walkways and the trams to take you to various parts of the city. The trams are great to use to tour various parts of Bern.

Travelling with a car? Top tip, go to the tourist information centre and buy a 24 parking card for the blue street parking. You can park under the Parliament and walk up the hill to Old Town. Lovely architecture. There was a market there too....More

I mostly admire Switzerland for its precision - modern architecture and amazing trains. But now and then it’s nice to see reminders of the long and colorful history of the place, and old town Bern is about the best I’ve seen. From the intricate tower...More

Coming down the hill on the city bus #12 from the Paul Klee Museum, got off at Barenpark and walked the old bridge and up to the clock, just beautiful. Hint: go first to visit the wonderful Klee Museum, exchange your museum parking lot ticket...More

As the old city is well preserved, I felt like I was walking through the medieval European city. In the case of Switzerland, different cities have different charms. 오랜된 유럽중세도시의 모습이 그대로 잘 보존된 곳 같았다. 스위스의 경우에는 도시마다 그 도시마다의 특색과 매력이 있는 것...More

Beautiful city and easily walkable. Lovely little streets with lots of history, nice bars and restaurants. The basement shops are really cool feature of the old town. Shame Switzerland is just so expensive in general as would love to spend more time going out.
