If you have a diplomatic soul, are friendly and passionate, an admirer of beautiful things and lover of history, then it comes as no surprise that you have chosen the capital of Switzerland, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bern to make your home.
Fall under the spell of Bern
The first impression is often the right one. We’re willing to go so far as to bet that you’ll fall hopelessly in love with the architecture of Altstadt, the Old Town, surrounded by the emerald river Aare. Every detail is drenched in history, from the cobbled streets to the Schanze towers protecting the city and the old bridges that recall the days of brave armored knights returning home from battle in the surrounding countryside. The city of Bern has managed to maintain its medieval character to the delight of its residents. Still, all the standards of modern times have been able to be successfully integrated into the city, matching up to all the European capitals.
Like a bear, the canton’s mascot, that hibernates in the winter, the Bernese love returning home to a cozy apartment in the city. Comfort is prioritized in Bern, and so many choose to live in beautiful mansions in residential areas near commercial centers.
