Old Bern is filled with stores and cafés. There is a beautiful park by the church overlooking the river. Don't miss the walk to the Bear park and also going down to the river. This river flows fast but is quite beautiful. You can dip you feet and relax by the river.

You can see the city very quickly.
It is more geared for shopping.
Has nice and good restaurants.
Besides the casino, very few nightlife.

Was pleasantly surprised when visiting Bern. Lots of interesting buildings/clocks and a fountain on just about every street!. There are loads of shops tucked away. You can also get on various trams and travel around, but be warned they are quite quiet so go careful when crossing the roads! There is also a clock in the centre that has animated parts that move on the hour which certainly attracts a crowd. Wasn't hugely exciting but good to have seen it. There is also Eienstein's house which again isn't exciting but I can say I've seen it! Will definately take another visit if I'm in the area.

We visited Bern in July and we had a wonderful day walking through the old town. We found that it was easy to walk through in wet or dry conditions as the sidewalks were all under cover. The architecture is wonderful and the clock towers and fountains are all fascinating . We went to the bear enclosure and found it very good to see how the bears are looked after.

Nice place to walk by. Very calm place and best to enjoy in a cloudy but cool weather. Visited in 2008.
