City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: prepare a pair of comfortable walking shoes and a bottle of water to walk and explore bern!

Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: Make sure you swim in the river around the city if you are a strong enough swimmer - its one of those really cool, quirky things that you dont get to do in many other places in the world. Also, dont let Swiss German take you by surprise - I took 2 days wondering why I could understand bits of sentences in German but not quite all of it.

Liked: Weather, the atmosphere, the sights are beautiful and there is plenty to do to fill a weekend. A great place to chill out.

Disliked: I cant think of anything.
