• Bern, Switzerland
    Aare River and Nydegg Bridge


Stately but human, classy but fun, the Swiss capital is the most rewarding place to experience urban Switzerland. Window-shop along streets lined with cozy, covered arcades, and people-watch in the lively market square. Enjoy Bern's excellent museums, quaint-for-a-capital ambience, and delightful river scene. Its pointy towers, sandstone buildings, colorful fountains, and riverside setting make Bern one of Europe's finest surviving medieval towns.
