"Bundeshaus (building of the government)" House of Parliament Tip by Saroula

House of Parliament, Bern: 24 reviews and 51 photos

by Saroula

This is the Bundeshaus, from where you will have a smashing view over Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau (3 mountains in the Bernese Oberland, which you should definitely see from near some time as well!). All the cantons of Switzerland are marked around the building.

1848 Switzerland as a state was founded. The last canton which came to it was Jura in 1978. Switzerland as it is now, is only 25 years old! :)
