Bern Mini Guide

The historic medieval old town of Bern is formally recognised as a place of special cultural or physical significance, a cultural World Heritage Site. Bern has so much to see; from the old bridges that cross the Aare to the historic old town, declared a World Heritage Site in 1983. For shoppers, Bern is perfect. It has 6kms of shopping arcades, the most in Europe – look out for the chocolate shops and make sure your hire car in Bern has plenty of storage space!

Bern is situated in west Switzerland. The airport is relatively small compared to other Swiss airports, so flights are limited. If you cannot find a suitable flight, Basel or Zurich have more options and are a short drive to Bern with a rental vehicle.  The road networks are very accessible and there are plenty of underground parking facilities. If you are hiring a car in Switzerland for the first time we recommend reading our Drive Smart Switzerland guide to ensure you know the rules of the road and can drive safely in and around Bern.
