18 Secrets & Best Places in Bern, Switzerland
These are my 18 hidden secrets, things to do & best places to visit for Bern, the capital of Switzerland. Bern is not the first place you think of when planning a trip to Europe but let me tell you, Bern is one of the most beautiful places I've been to.
My Bern Travel guide with tips, secrets, maps, addresses and photos:
Kick off Bern with a refreshing jump in the Aare river which flows at speeds up to 13 km per hour while you hold onto your airbag containing your clothes.
For lunch I recommend grabbing a bite at a patio on the Barenplatz downtown Bern loaded with adorable little restaurants and bars.
Kramgasse is the main shopping street with a gorgeous view on the Zytglogge clocktower, the photos simply don't do this place justice.
Bern is well known for being the residence of Professor Einstein, you can visit his original apartment on the Kramgasse. This is also the same place where Einstein came up with the formula E=MC2.
For a fun evening grab a couple of beers at Antonio's Bar & Cafe next to the Zytglogge. I ended up playing a fun game called Corridor with some of the locals and met a couple of friendly girls from Zurich.
In conclusion, Bern is a great summer destination for a pit-stop during a road trip through the Swiss Alps. Due to its small size, 2 days is sufficient to see the entire city. Happy travels!
Have a safe journey!

Gelmerbahn: The Highest Roller Coaster in the World
The Gelmerbahn in the canton of Bern is the steepest funicular in Switzerland and Europe.
The video starts with normal speed and then accelerates continuously up to 100 times to give a roller coaster feeling. The real thing is more impressive, although the cable car descents very slowly.
If you're staying in Zürich, Switzerland for a few days you might want to consider a day trip to a nearby town and one of the closest destinations is the historic city of Zug. It has a small historic center with several remarkable buildings and quaint Swiss atmosphere. Zug is half an hour away by train and all the trains leave twice an hour from Zürich, so it's really easy to get there.
It's a direct train -- you don't have to change – and you’ll enjoy some nice scenery along the way. When you arrive in Zug you'll notice that the train station is quite modern. If you think you're coming to visit an old historic town, which is really the plan, you'll be surprised at how beautiful and up-to-date the station is. In fact Zug is a modern city with a historical town, which is what we’re here to see. You don’t want to walk from the train station to the old town, which is just too far, over a mile, so get on the public bus. A short ride take you through the modern part along the lakeshore, and you'll soon be arriving within a few blocks of the old town. Now come along on our video tour of Zug’s Old Town.

Bern, Swizerland: A Walking Tour
The capital city of Switzerland, Bern is historical and traditional. The city grew from a small medieval village on the banks of the river to become the larger city it is today. The curve of the street still follows the bend around the old city walls, which stand behind the structures that now hold shops and restaurants. The wonder of Bern, its astronomical clock, was built in 1530 and has kept perfect time ever since, running without the use of a computer.
