Tour 1 with Patrick

If walls could talk, the city of Bern had a lot of stories to tell! Some are thrilling, others would make you laugh. As walls can't talk, we would love to stroll around the old town of Bern with you, dive into more than 800 years of history of this beautiful jewel and share some old as well as new stories with you.

 

In about 2h we will discover the old town, we will learn why people in Bern are so obsessed by bears, why it's legal to pee against the clock tower and lots of other useful facts about this UNESCO world heritage site at the river Aare.
