“Clean and efficient”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Switzerland is known for its precision, and the experience riding its rails only bolsters that reputation. The railroad station in Bern has a little bit of everything: shops and restaurants, busy businessfolks and lollygagging students. It's a destination all its own.

Pro tip: Make a stop by the tourist office on the upper level. The staff there was very friendly, and they hand out a helpful (and free) map that details points of interest.

“Centre of Town”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

The station is well laid out and has a good variety of shops. It is also clean and has escalators leading up to the streets at all exits. Some great bakeries which sell beautiful locally made cakes. Seems to be safe as it is well lit.

“The river, and the starbucks”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Our hotel receptionist recommended to strip down to your shorts and jump in the river which runs through Bern. It is beautiful blue water, and has a strong current. But not to worry, every 50m or so there are metal rails and steps so you can get out easily, i had never felt so alive in my life, completely invigorating. As for the starbucks in the station, go and buy a grande mocha for 6 swiss franks! truly shocking!
