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.

UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern Reviews
Είναι χτισμένη σε μία γραφική τοποθεσία στις όχθες του ποταμού Άαρε και με τα όμορφα κτήρια στους πλακόστρωτους δρόμους του μεσαιωνικού κέντρου της, τις πετρόκτιστες γέφυρες, τα πανέμορφα συντριβάνια,... more »It is built in a picturesque location on the banks of the river Ahe and with the beautiful buildings on the paved streets of the medieval center, the stone bridges, the beautiful fountains, the museums and the beautiful sights, is the most wonderful city of Switzerland. Although the capital of the state, it maintains an atmosphere of smaller city and the visitor can tour pleasantly and wander easily even on foot. In the main street of the Old Town (Marktgasse) Several of the old houses have been transformed into attractive shops. The Old Town of Bern (Altstad) is the best preserved historic centre in Switzerland. You will really enjoy your wandering in the historic center and the cameras will be on fire!
Beautiful little town centre with many shops and cafes. Everything can be accessible by walking. Clean, safe and pretty, but food is expensive just like everywhere else in Swiss. more »
