Bern

3.9

City of Bears

The capital and political center of Switzerland, Bern sits on a peninsula formed by the U-shaped River Aare. The city boasts a historical town center that is a destination because of its history, museums, and public art. As a World Heritage Site, the medieval city is characterized by sandstone facades, narrow streets, and covered shopping arcades. Cafe culture thrives in Bern, but as with most Swiss cities, eating and drinking can quickly break the bank. In summer, a dip in the River Aare is a popular pastime. Bern is in Bern Mittelland District. With the Inspirock online itinerary creator, Bern and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
