Bern Itinerary: Things to Do in Bern, Switzerland’s capital

Another capital in Europe you have to visit is Bern. We wrote about Paris, Madrid, Budapest, Viena, Zagreb. Now try another UNESCO World Heritage site in the Old Town of Bern. If you love shopping streets and covered sidewalks, here are 10 things you can do in a city break in Bern, Switzerland.

Things to Do in Bern

  1. The Old Town of Bern will transport you back in time with its medieval architecture and cobblestone streets. Snap a pic in front of the iconic Zytglogge clock tower and refill your water bottle from one of the beautiful fountains.

2. For a good night scene and bars, clubs, and people, head to the Matte neighborhood. It’s part of the old town and to travel from the upper zones to the lower ones you can take the Mattelift, a venerable lift still operated by a local figure (Hans Peter Blum). He might tell you a story or two during the transport inside this 1897-built metal construction designed by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel. Yes, that Eiffel.

Some special accessories> 
  • What I recommend as a must-have is a chic dress. Try iepemarie.ro
  • And a hat for the same bourgeois feeling of this city. Try this.
