Gurten

At 858m, the Gurten sports fabulous views over Bern on a clear day, and makes for a welcome getaway from the city.

Zentrum Paul Klee

Recommended

It’s testament to the strength of Zentrum Paul Klee’s collection of works by Bern’s favourite artistic son that it’s not totally upstaged by Renzo Piano’s inspired building-landform hybrid.

Aare outdoor baths

A popular draw with the Bernese in the summer, who like to cool off in the green waters of the River Aare right in the heart of the city.
