"A Day in Berne" Old town Tip by Rhondaj

Old town, Bern: 13 reviews and 14 photos

by Rhondaj

Favorite thing: We came for the day to stroll and shop. Our little homebase village, Kandersteg, has very few shops. Berne's lovely old town is the perfect place to spend a day.

After arriving at Berne's train station, lower level, we started on Spitalgasse. As you travel down the streets, notice that their names change!

The old town is surrounded by the river Aare. If you were to look at a map, the old town is very much in the shape of a thumb of a hand surrounded by water.
