By car, by train????? By car, it's an about 1 1/2 hours and an easy drive on autobahn (freeway). By train, it's an hour or more depending on which train you catch. You can look at the route for driving on michelin.com and check out trains on sbb.ch/en - hope this helps.

Thanks you so much. I really wanted to check out the HR Giger museum, but I wanted to stay in Zurich. Now I can do both.

The HR Giger Museum is not in Bern. It's in Gruyeres. Gruyeres is 1.5 - 2.0 hours away from Bern, direction Geneva.

Oh, that is a shame - try the Swiss rail site for trains - maybe it is still possible if you don't mind a fairly long day. Hope it works out for you.
