Berne is the capital of Switzerland and is not only a political and diplomatic metropolis but also a very popular and much-visited destination, due to its central, geographical location. Only a stone's throw from Geneva, Zurich and Basel, Berne is an ideal starting point for trips and excursions all over Switzerland.
Berne - the romantic capital city! The romantic medieval streets of the city are still a reminder of Berne's glorious past from the 14th to the 16th century. But, even now, Berne has lost none of its former sparkle, for the city's medieval facade, created during that period, still remains largely unchanged today.
Stroll along or shop in the city's long, inviting arcades or linger in one of the numerous street cafs. The Zytglockenturm (clock tower), the Munster (cathedral), the bear pit and the breath-taking view from the rose garden are some of the lasting impressions which visitors to Berne can take home with them.
Berne also has a number of cultural attractions; plenty of museums, a diverse range of theatrical entertainment and a pulsating night life.
