Bern: Top things to do and see
Bern may not be as known as Zurich, but Bern is the capital of Switzerland nevertheless. Moreover, Bern is also part of UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is always a good argument to visit a place. However, a special location and an incomparable flair make the city of Bern really worth a visit.
So, here are our top things to do and see in Bern. All of them are for free!
Visit the BearPark Bern
It is a tradition that Bern houses bears.
Formerly, the old BearPark was not really natural, but nowadays, the enclosure is appropriate!

The history of the Nydeggbrücke goes back to the 12th century. The bridge itself was named World Heritage Site. Not just that, being on the bridge means also enjoying incredible views!
Right next to the bridge is the Nydeggkirche, which is also World Heritage Site.
