Just perfectly organized - you can easily fid your way around, the transport of the city is clearly explained as well as the trains leaving the city. Most of the staff speaks English, German, French and some Italian and there is a bine parking.

For such a busy place, they really are very organized. There's a central area that has the time's and track's for all the trains and they're usually always on time.

This is a multi-level very busy railway and bus station. It has all the amenities that you would expect from a first class amenity, but it's Christmas decorations are very lovely and really worth seeing as are parts of the old ramparts that were discovered during excavations. We exchanged currency there too.

This is one of the better stations in Europe. It has signage and good directions on where to go to find your trains and exits. There are tons of shops and cafes and they are open late and early so no matter when you catch your train there is something to do while waiting. A good clean station with good... More

Very busy station. Everything is well posted with signs above. But train tickets on upper level to the right when you walk in the front entrance. Be sure to take a ticket number and wait for your turn when buying train tickets in the SBB office. Lots of eateries, bakeries, places to buy food. If you are catching a tram... More

Trams and buses deliver you right outside the station. Busy inside (I was catching 07:35 to Zurich on a Thursday morning). Plenty of snack shops, clear signage, helpful staff.

Station is large and well signposted. When catching a train remember that the platforms can sometimes be split into two so there may be two trains at what seems to be the same platform. Access from station to local bus and tram network is reasonably well signposted but double check.

In and out of Bern by train. This train station doesn't have a particularly amazing architecture like some others. It does have a lot of shopping options and the bathrooms are very clean (it costs 2CHF to use it). At night there were a lot of younger people who seemed to just be loitering around probably because of the University... More
