It is best to discover Berne on foot. Starting at the main station walk along the arcades, the so called “Lauben” which offer numerous shopping opportunities, and continue on to the federal parliament building. Every half-hour there are water fountains shooting from the ground of the newly designed Federal Square, enjoyed by everyone.
On your way through the Old Town you will see the Zytylogge, one of Berne’s landmarks.
If you then continue on you will reach the cathedral with a portrayal of the Last Judgment over its portal. Finally you will reach the bear pits where bears - the animal depicted on the city’s coat of arms - beg for carrots.
