Holiday Destination: Bern

The city of Bern or Berne is the Bundesstadt of Switzerland, the fourth most populous city in Switzerland. Bern is also the capital of the Canton of Bern, the second most populous of Switzerland's cantons. The official language of Bern is German, but the main spoken language is the Alemannic dialect called Bernese German. In 1983 the historic old town in the centre of Bern became World Heritage Site, and Bern is ranked among the world’s top ten cities for the best quality of life. The medieval air of this city with its many fountains, sandstone facades, narrow streets and historic towers is unique. The elevated Rose Garden above the Bear Park and the platform of the 101 metre high cathedral tower offer the best views of the old town round which the River Aare flows. The former entrenchments and bastions drop down steeply to the river. The boutiques, bars and cabaret stages of the old town, some of which are located in vaulted cellars, and the small street cafes attract locals as well as a lot of tourists. Although Bern has a very good public transport network it is best to explore the city centre on foot.

Tourist Attraction in or Near by Bern

Bear Pit

A bear pit was historically used to display bears, typically for entertainment and especially bear-baiting. The pit area was normally surrounded by a high fence, above which the spectators would look down on the bears. The most traditional form of maintaining bears in captivity is keeping them in pits, although many zoos replaced these by more elaborate and spacious enclosures that attempt to replicate their natural habitats, for the benefit of the animals and the visitors. Berlin has a bear pit, known as the Bärenzwinger, which was established in 1939 in Köllnischer Park behind the Märkisches Museum. Another bear pit in Bern, Switzerland, known as the Bärengraben, was built in 1857 and is still in use to display bears, albeit supplemented by the adjacent BärenPark, a larger and more natural enclosure to which it is linked by tunnel.

Cathedral Clock

The World Heritage Site of Old Bern houses the Cathedral, the largest building of religious importance in Switzerland and one of the most important, in the Upper German region. This late Gothic city parish church was begun in 1421 A. D. and became a chapter in 1484. This 100 meter tall neo-Gothic style structure is richly furnished and offers a wonderful view of the Old City from above the rooftops. The Cathedral Clock, Bern was originally built as the city gate.

The house is a simple pattern book cottage and in itself is of no particular architectural significance. Albert Einstein reportedly requested that this house not be made a museum, and the family did not want it to be recognized as such. Nonetheless it was added to the National Register of Historic Places and further designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark in 1976. The house was previously occupied by Eric Maskin and his family. He was the Albert O. Hirschman Professor of Social Science, School of Social Science, Institute of Advanced Study.
