Bernisches Historisches Museum – Einstein Museum

This museum is a must-visit for any history or science enthusiast.

Einstein House (Einsteinhaus)

This is the house where Albert Einstein lived while he was working in Bern.

Old Town

One of the many things to love about Bern’s UNESCO-listed medieval centre is its uniformity: Most of the city was claimed by a fire in 1405, and tall sandstone buildings took over from the old wooden houses.


Bern hosts a variety of events throughout the year. Whether it’s the Audi FIS Ski World Cup, Spring Battle, street festival, castle festival, traditional parades, concerts, or sporting events, there’s always something happening.

Tickets and Passes

When it comes to public transportation, Bern offers the Bern Ticket. From your very first overnight stay at a tourist accommodation in the city of Bern, you will receive a Bern Ticket for your entire stay, which lets you travel for free on public transport in zones 100/101 operated by the LIBERO Association.
