Central Railroad Station, Bern

3.3
Gain access to other parts of Switzerland, France, Germany and Italy via Central Railroad Station, a historic station constructed between 1858 and 1860 and rebuilt and renovated several times. Operated by Swiss Federal Railways, the country's second-largest train station offers tourist information as well as other services like ticketing and currency exchange. Its large glass exterior stands out, and the inside resembles an airport terminal with modern amenities. In addition to transportation options, the station is known for its shopping center, featuring more than 70 shops that are open daily, even after other shops in the station have closed. Plan my day in Bern using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
