"The most beautiful that we have ever seen" J. W. Goethe
The old city of Bern enlisted in UNESCO's World Heritage Sites is one of the rare corners in the world, which preserved its medieval townscape with numerous fountains, narrow streets and towers.
If you have courage to climb up 344 steps of the Cathedral of Bern, the highest tower in the city, you will be amazed by the majestic scenery of the old town nestled on the banks of Aare River and snowy mountains of Berner Oberland.
Visiting Bern's heraldic animals, Bears, you can create their medallions by your hands and take it with you as a bright memory. Your impression about the city would not be complete if you do not visit the ornate astronomical clock with moving figures, the Rose Garden with 220 sorts of roses, the prison tower and the town hall.
We start our tour from the main train station of the capital: discovery of the Heiliggeistkirche and walking along the Spitalgasse street and Baerenplatz. The City center is the Bundesplatz, where the Bundeshaus (the Government Palace) is situated surrounded by all main Swiss banks: and this is the picture of Swiss reality! Then we discover the Zyttglogge, the oldest Clock in Switzerland working for centuries. We will have the possibility to discover the Einstein House Museum on the Kramgasse Street. Afterwards we cross the river Aare and discover the brewery-restaurant Tramdepot near to the bear pit. The last point of our excursion is the Rosengarten, a magnificent atmosphere to have a relaxation and enjoy the Bern City panorama.
Some secrets of the capital City of Switzerland will be divulged during this tour. Welcome to Bern!

We had a great time see the Bern city with the help of Johan. We were a large group and he was very accommodating and willing to spend extra time with us due to the size of the group. He has a great knowledge of about the history. I definitely recommend him.
