Description

Welcome to Bern! The Capital City of Switzerland and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Join Switzerland-tour journeys over Bern City by meeting your friendly guide at Bern's main train station or the lobby of your hotel. Start revealing secrets about the civilization of this deep-rooted and historic city while enjoying the stunning scenery all around you.

The first place to visit will be the striking Holy Ghost Church (Heiliggeistkirche) dating back to the 15th century, which was renovated in 2005 - 2006.

Next, you’ll stroll through the Old Town (Altstadt), feeling like you’re walking right out of a history book as you walk along Spitalgasse Street and beautiful Barenplatz. Then you’ll continue on to shop on Marktgasse Street, viewing 9 astonishing fountains, each with unique sculptures.

You will then move on to discover the Zytglogge - the world’s oldest functioning clock tower. This decorated astronomical calendar watch is the masterpiece of Bern’s Old Town and has been in service for over 800 years.

At the center of Bern lies the Bundesplatz. Here you’ll discover the Swiss Parliament House, the Government Palace "Bundeshaus." It’s home to public festivals, surrounded by leading Swiss banks and is the picture of Swiss daily life!

If you’d like to continue your education, you have the optional opportunity to visit the Einstein House Museum on the most famous street Kramgasse, where the world’s genius physicist lived.

And if you have enough determination, energy, and persistence, do not hesitate to climb the 344 stairs of Bern’s Cathedral. It is the highest tower in the city, which displays stunning views of the majestic scenery of the Old Town nestled on the banks of Aare River and the snowy mountains of Berner Oberland.

The last point of our excursion is the "Bear Pit" next to the brewery-restaurant Tramdepot. You will reach this destination to visit the friendly bears by crossing the Aare River, where you’ll see them in their natural environment.

After an action-filled day, you can sit back and relax at the Rose Garden (Rosengarten) situated near the Bear Pit. Here, the magnificent atmosphere and enjoyable panorama of Bern City unfolds. However, if you’d still like to embrace the culture and history, you could continue to visit one of the exciting museums in Bern, such as the Bern Historical Museum, Swiss Alpine Museum, Natural History Museum or even the Museum of Communication.

Book your adventurous city tour of Bern now to explore its hidden depths and immerse yourself in real Swiss culture.
