Full description
Learn the story of the capital of Switzerland and its most famous monuments on a 2-hour walking tour of the historic city center. See the large Heiliggeistkirche (Church of the Holy Ghost) in the Old City (Altstadt), where the layout has remained unchanged for centuries. Walk along the Spitalgasse to arrive at the Baerenplatz, built during the 13th century expansion. Admire the government buildings of the Bundesplatz, where many Swiss banks are located, and see the oldest clock in Switzerland at the Zyttglogge. Get the chance to visit the Einstein House Museum, or climb the 344 stairs up the tower of Bern Cathedral. Look over the rooftops of the Old City on the banks of the Aare River with the snow-capped mountains of the Berner Oberland in the background. Discover the old Tramdepot brewery restaurant before ending in the Rosengarten, where the scent of more than 220 different species of roses is coupled with magnificent views of the city.

We would have loved to learn more about art, culture and history. Instead, we learned details from the professional activities of the leader that were of no interest to us. The lady also kept getting lost and did not know how to answer many questions. We drove back and forth pointlessly on the wrong bus route.
