One of the loveliest European towns I've had the good fortune to visit. Sunday is a good day to visit, most of the shops were closed and the tourist crowds minimal. We felt as though we had stepped back in time...this is the Europe I had always imagined.

It is such a treat to simply spend a morning or afternoon meandering through the cobbled streets of Bern's Old Town - it is a hive of activity with its ample resturants, cafes, bsitros, boutique stores, markets, landmarks and more. There are beautiful squares to sit in and enjoy an espresso and simply sit back and watch the world go by :) Leave your map behind and go discover...

Berne is one of the most beautiful European cities I have ever seen. The city center is medieval and all distances are walkable, although public transport is of high quality too. You can cross the city center starting from the central station to the Bärengraben in a quarter of an hour. Be prepared: there are some impressive height differences in the city but there is a small escalator train and some escalators and there are also some old stairs leading up to bridges etc. I especially liked walking along the river Aare, nature is beautiful there and it was very quiet.

Love Bern! Easy to get around - great for a day visit! SUPER SHOPPING! So many shops, cafes, etc. Bus and trams are easy, the river is beautiful, the farmer's market was fun.
