  • We go there regularly. A rainy Sunday without art museum is not Sunday. Way to go

  • Not bad. Not a very large collection. There are better. But there is also a Dali, Manet, Kandinsky, as well as Italian Primitivism in 14-15.

  • I think it was about 22ChF for entry and the current Russian exhibition. There was a fee ?10ChF even for the general museum. Having just been to London where the museums and art galleries are free and...  more »

  • Very good museum with interesting temporary exhibitions. Not too large, so two to three hours should be enough for a reasonable view.
  • I love contemporary art, and art museums in general, but if you are used to larger museums, you may be disappointed by how small the space is, and the price you pay for admissions. While I'd like the support visitors going to this museum, this space is more like a small to medium sized gallery rather than a museum. I wouldn't necessarily recommend friends to take a train from other parts of the country to visit, but if you are in the area, and you have time to peruse through the city, this can be one of the stops, along with the Bears that are in walking distance.
  • Very quiet and serene place. The oldest art museum in Switzerland. The aim was to see the exhibition The Princely Collections of Liechtenstein - worth visiting!
  • Small and (if you do not have a Museumspass) atrociously expensive and really bad value for money. Half a dozen really interesting works, though.
  • Well done presentation. Thank you.

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.
