Location | Bern, Switzerland

Bern’s old city was built on a narrow hill surrounded by the river Aare on three sides. The compact layout of the city has barely changed at all since its construction from the 12th to 15th century, and has a medieval character. In 1983 it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its original medieval character. A great city where public transportation and biking or walking is a pleasure.
