While not the largest city in Switzerland, Bern is the capital. On the banks of the Aare River, Bern is an approachable and appealing city, and one that boasts world-class attractions as well as a relaxed, authentic nature. Arguably the best thing about visiting Bern is that the city is completely pedestrian friendly, boasting miles of walkways that bring you to the top buildings, monuments and landmarks in the area. While there are many art galleries and museums in Bern, one of the top choices is the Zentrum Paul Klee, where you’ll find an enormous collection of Klee’s works in a thoroughly modern structure. If you would like to take a stroll and enjoy views over the entire city, hike to Gurten, a hill just outside Bern, for panoramic vistas.
