Visitors to Switzerland’s capital city are spoilt for choice, with an almost limitless offer of cultural activities, shopping and lifestyle to enjoy. The mediaeval atmosphere in Bern’s historic old town with its countless alleyways and ancient towers and turrets is unique in Switzerland. Bern’s city centre is a recognised UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, and its miles of arcades make for an impressive covered shopping promenade.
