City Break: Stay In Bern, Travel Free

Bern is a really fun city to explore after your Swiss hiking tour. From trendy eateries and cafes, to world class shopping and art, there’s a little bit of something for everyone. It’s also a perfectly preserved medieval city, making it a photographer and history buff’s dream. The perfectly preserved Old Town is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.

If you stay overnight in Bern, then you’ll travel for free with the Bern Ticket on Bern’s extensive public transportation system. The Bern ticket covers your entire stay and includes the famous Gurten funicular, the funicular Marzilibahn and the elevator to the Cathedral Platform. The Cathedral Platform is a viewing platform on the Berner Münster, a Gothic cathedral in the center of town dating to 1421. The Münster is Switzerland’s tallest cathedral. The viewing platform offers 365-degree views of the city and the peaks of the Berner Oberland on a clear day.
