30 minute ride from Bern by car or train, this city has eleven of everything: churches and chapels, fountains, towers, and it was the eleventh canton to join the Federation. It is arguably the oldest city north of the Alps, and contains perhaps the best collection of Baroque architecture in Switzerland, including the Cathedral of St. Ours. A lovely marketplace is a fine site for lunch in the middle of your leisurely stroll around this pretty town. The setting on the hill above the River Aare is lovely, and you can take a river excursion.
