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.

Bern Old Town is great, charming and nice to have a walk. On the day of Onion Market is full of people from early morning and you can see and buy beautiful and different onions and try some specials. Its worth to get up early !!!
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.
