It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world that I have ever seen. I felt blessed during my stay in Bern and today the Swiss capital still enchants its travellers with its charm and diverse charms and events.

No other city in Switzerland proffers such a great culture, leisure and activity like Bern. Rush and frantic are overseas words to the Bernese. People in the city enjoy their life and take time for what is truly momentous. It is completely simple to calm and enjoy oneself in the traditional old city ambience.

UNESCO World Heritage Site

The credit goes to its well-preserved medieval city; the old city of Bern is listed in UNESCO’s world heritage sites in 1983. All heritage buildings are dating from a diversity of eras, include 15th-century malls and 16th-century fountains. Most of the historical city was restored in 18th century but it has retained its original character.

Clock Tower (Zytglogge)

Similar to another structure in the Canton Bern the Clock Tower is at the centre of the city of Bern. The clock tower was first western city gate and now one of the most beautiful sights. Built in 1530, it served as the city’s main clock and thus had an authoritative function in Bern.

The rose garden

The Rose Garden is a beautiful place for flower lovers where you can get to see roses, irises and moor beds. It holds a wonderful view of the Old Town and Aare Loop. It also boasts a restaurant in a significant area and a beautiful view of Bern.

House of Parliament

The house of Parliament is the offices of the Swiss government. The building was completed in 1902. The central domed hall and both chambers boast many symbolic renderings of Swiss past. It is said that almost 38 artists across the country are responsible for the building's designs.

The Cathedral of Bern

The churches of Bern are the most interesting example of Late Gothic architecture. The cathedral with its three naves increases above the city’s old city. The Cathedral of Bern is the biggest and most important church from the late middle ages. Being a dominant building in Bern's Old Town, which was listed in UNESCO World Heritage status in 1983, the churches play an important character in the city’s architecture.

A home to Switzerland’s greatest museums and galleries, Bern is considered as a real citadel of culture. The mixture of globally famous art and exclusive architecture makes it an unforgettable travel! Bern is really a must see cultural devotee.
