Bern Travel Tips & Suggestions

I embarked on my first transatlantic flight just to see the Einstein Exhibit featured at the History Museum here, and it was worth every mile. I meant to stay only two days, but was there nearly one week to unwind in the quiet Swiss town on the river. I'd like to visit in the summer sometime, when you can swim or raft. In the summer you can also borrow a bicycle to travel about for free.

Paul Klee {an artist} lived here. That's really cool.
Bern is a beautiful classy city. It's a great place to walk around and spend some time by the river. As you would expect in Switzerland, it's very clean and stately. Their are great views of the city, the river, and the residents' small gardens from the small park with an overlook next to the gothic chuch. Bern also has its own medieval part of the city that winds down to the river and is quite charming. While Bern won't take up too much of your time, it's a great city for an overnight stop and some meandering.
Bern is fun to walk around in, there are lots of cute fountains, but the Bear Pits are slightly depressing. I liked the art museum, but after one day I thought that I had seen most of the city.
Bern comments only. Don't discuss the hostels here, post a review on the hostel's page instead.
