  • Beautiful garden with a variety of plants and flowers. It is very peaceful and makes for a great afternoon stroll. It is a close walk from the station.
  • Beautiful collection of plants in greenhouses representing different climate zones. I liked especially the orchids and tropical house.
  • Really beautiful place to relax and see interesting plants.
  • Crossing the bridge to the botanic gardens will give you a fanatic view of the old city along the side of the river. Although compact, the botanic gardens is diverse with a range of displays. The cafe on one of the garden terraces is buzzing with people enjoying freshly brewed barista coffee but if you want to escape the noise, there are plenty of places to find solitude in the garden.
  • Awesome view on the Aare. Many different plants and animals from all around the world. Good place to relax or study

Where to stay in Bern

In historic Bern, the bulk of the accommodation offerings are confined to the peninsula, where the Old Town or "Altstadt" is located. Staying here gives you the convenience of being within walking distance to everything--which will come in handy in this generally car-free area. Throughout the Old Town you'll find a number of mid-range three-star hotels complete with their original 19th-century characteristics. A couple hostels and pensions round out the options here, though these tend to be a bit more expensive than one might expect. Outside of the Old Town, there are a few hotels with cheaper rates, though you compromise on convenience and atmosphere. The city also boasts a few stunning four- and five-star hotels, should your budget be forgiving.
