Reviewed October 2, 2012

BERN is a nice place and you have to visit its old town... all old buildings, so many fountains during your way and the old big clock...
if u want to do some shopping, then it;s the place... there's shops and markets of all the swiss brands on both sides of the road...
good restaurants and places to eat...

“Great place to spend the day”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The city center is a UNESCO heritage site which should not be missed. It includes the Old clock as well as Einstein's house in addition to loads of shopping!

“Historic Bern is lovely”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Bern is a very friendly and walkable city. I love the fountains, the arcades, and of course, the clock tower. Great variety of shopping opportunities. Wonderful Museums and churches to visit as well.

“Old Town”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Very pretty and lovely to walk around, and the town is not too big so you can take it all at a good pace and see all the old buildings
