Patrick Bo.

Grüessech and welcome to Bern! My name is Patrick and together with Nora I founded Free Walking Tours Bern a couple of years ago. I was born in this city in 1980 and never got bored of my beautiful home ever since! I'm a passionate traveller, trumpet player and hiker and (working as a Software Engineer) a huge nerd. One thing that I've learned as a traveller was, that you never really know a city until you have seen it through the eyes of a local. On my tour you will learn a lot about Bern's history but I will also tell you a lot of stories that you can't find on Wikipedia. Together we will explore the old town and it's secrets and we get to know the funny people who live in it's walls. See you soon! Patrick


Hello everyone! My name is Nora, I was born and raised in Bern and in summer 2014 Patrick Bo. and I had the idea to found Free Walking Tours Bern. Since then, I’ve conducted over two hundred tours, I’ve met many great people from all over the world and I hope I’ve offered a great walk through the city of Bern to all of them. When I’m not guiding people through the city, I’m studying political sciences in the Master at the University of Bern and during my leisure time I like to do any kind of sport, to meet friends and play games and of course, I like to travel and to do free walking tours myself! See you soon :-)


Patrick Ba.

Hoi dear visitor! My name's Patrick and I lead tour #3. Showing visitors from everywhere around is the next step of a love story that started for me three years ago, when I first moved to Bern. Being passionated about old walls and funny stories, this city revealed to have all it needs for me… and for you I'm sure! As you'll notice quickly during my tour, I'm a language enthusiast (dialects and dead languages, yeah!). I also love hiking and biking, traveling by train, swimming in the Aare river when the temperature permits (and only then – that's how you can tell I'm not from here), and I'm often to be met at music or film festivals across the country. When I'm not leading a tour, I'm working at the crossroads of education and sustainable development. See you soon at the bear pit!


Hi there! My name is Lara and I’m new to the crew of guides. I have lived in Bern for four years now and I still enjoy its charme every day. I’m a primary school teacher and I like travelling and sport, especially hiking. In summer I often do aareböötle (boat trips on the Aare river) and in winter I go skiing in the Bernese Oberland, where my parents live. Being a tourguide does not only allow me to get in contact with people from everywhere but also to spend a lot of time in the lovely old town of Bern and I’m looking forward to show you my most favourite places in our beautiful federal city. See you soon!
