The Bundesplatz is the Government Plaza in Bern, the capital city of Switzerland. It is situated at the Old City of Bern, the medieval city center of Bern, Switzerland. It is part of the Innere Neustadt which was built during the second expansion in 1255 to 1260, though the plaza was not built until much later. It is located in front of the Bundeshaus, the Swiss Parliament Building, and it is part of the UNESCO Cultural World Heritage Site that encompasses the Old City.HistoryThe western third of the modern Bundeshausplatz was originally part of the ditch around the second city wall. In 1765, a plaza was built in the area between the Ballenhaus and the Holzwerkhof. Ballenhaus was demolished in 1820 to make way for the Casino and was located on the site of the modern east wing of the Parliament at Bundesplatz 15. The Holzwerkhof was demolished to make way for the Bundeshaus West and was located at Bundesgasse 1. The new plaza construction was overseen by Niklaus Hebler, who planted Linden trees on the plaza and fenced in the southern side with a balustrade which overlooked the lower city and Aare river. Between 1894 and 1900, the new Bundeshaus was built, and a number of buildings were demolished which increased the size of the plaza. Until 1909, it was known as Parlamentplatz.Put Bundesplatz on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Bern itinerary maker.

ベルン中央駅から徒歩１０分弱、アーレ川沿いに立つスイスの連邦議会議事堂。 ベルンがスイスの首都なった１８４８年から１９０２年にかけて建設されたルネッサンス風の建物だそうです。 緑のドームが特徴的でベルンのシンボルとなっています。 8月下旬に訪れましたが、連邦議会議事堂の前の広場は工事中でした。Federal Parliament of Switzerland stands on the Aare River less than 10 minutes on foot from Bern railway station. It seems to Renaissance building was built in 1902 and from 1848 Bern becomes the capital of Switzerland. Distinctive green Dome, has become a symbol of Bern. We visited in late August, and construction was square in front of the Federal Parliament.show original
The lightshow that is put on in the fall is quite good, the fountain is fun to watch in the spring/ summer, ice skating is possible in the winter. Worth a wander through.
Wonderful experience with the light show :)
