“Beautiful city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Went to Bern, two days ago. Beautiful, charming city. The walk down the main street from the railway ststion is very nice lined with shops, etc there was an open street market with cheeses, olives , flowers and fruits. Very cute display of stuff making you want to try everything!! The walk to Belevue Palace Hotel was lovely. We had lunch at this very ancient hotel. We were surprised at the pains they took to serve vegetarian food! There is a beautiful view from the back of the pArliment building with the meandering river and cute houses.

The city is worth a visit!

“Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

For some reason I didn't expect Bern to be pretty but the old town was simply lovely. It is easy to navigate and has great charm.

“A wonderful Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

It's definately one of the most beautiful cities with a charming old town. Not a huge place but cosy.
The best thing is to combine it in summertime with a swim in the river.

“Beautifull old Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Bern is one of the world heritage cities. It has a beautifully preserved centre with many old buildings. Especially the longest roofed shopping street in europe is wort visiting with plenty of different kind of shops, bars and restaurants. On friday afternoon or on saturdays though one should consider since you will not be the only one visiting the centre
