Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Canton of Bern / Bern Mittelland District / Bern / UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern
Stroll through UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern, a World Heritage Site with arcaded walkways arranged along streets dotted with hundreds of public fountains. Although most of its structures underwent massive restoration in the 18th century, the old neighborhood retains much of its original layout and character. Home to Switzerland's tallest cathedral, the atmospheric Old Town stretches along a U-shaped peninsula, surrounded on three sides by the Aare River. Begin your walk through medieval Bern at the Old Town's landmark clock tower, featuring one of the world's earliest examples of animatronic technology. To see what the locals call "the longest running act in show biz," stand in front of the clock on the hour. Make your Bern itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Perhaps for its relief, perhaps by the fountains, perhaps for its architecture or for so many interesting aspects, is a destination of the most beautiful in all of Switzerland
Nice place to visit. It's just walking distance from train station. Clear water and cold breeze. Will give you fresh atmosphere and just next to it its Bearenpark. One can see live Bear roaming around its vicinity. Good to watch Animal so close.
Amazing experience walking up and down the streets of old town. Packed with restaurants, shops and it’s all connected with numerous tram stops for easy connections.One of our favourite cities in Switzerland the old city is full of cobblestone streets and quaint buildings. An extensive selection of designer brand shops with many specialty stores selling Swiss made products and souvenirs
