Close to many things in Berne, shops, cafes, restaurants, the markets etc. The trams are always close by, whizzing you in and out in no time at all.

While we were there in Bern, that sat eve a historical laser show was playing in the center town. And it was projected on Barenplatz. Amazing use of the structure and beautifully done. Inside it has a nice view of the town and gigantic chess boards.

Clearly a central point for Bern. We were so fortunate to be there for a fantastic light/music show at night, where lights were used to project moving images coordinated with music - wonderful atmosphere. Markets took over the square on Saturday morning which was a tactile, olfactory and gastronomical treat.

So near the Congress House (Palais Fédéral). The architecture is very beautiful and the energy and serenity of the place is just awsome.

This place was also renewed and now displays an interesting play of fountains, water streams shooting out of the ground. Just steps away there is a good choice of restaurants and bars. There is also a chessboard with pieces there, which unfortunately however usually is occupied.
