Bern Airport Transfers

Switzerland is known for doing things on a grand scale – the craggy mass of the Matterhorn, the shiny reputation of Geneva, the epic ski slopes of Graubünden – so having the modestly proportioned Bern as its de facto capital may seem out of place. What this charming tiny city lacks in headline-grabbing magnificence, it makes up for in charm.

It’s a site where history looms big, with a UNESCO-listed old town, medieval clock tower, and massive cathedral all giving the city a stuck-in-time atmosphere. It also has an odd obsession with all things ursine – the name ‘Bern’ is claimed to have arisen from when the city’s founder killed a bear here on the Aare peninsula, and bear pits have been in the town ever since. In Bern’s Bear Park, visitors may still witness the local bears living freely, climbing, fishing, and playing by the river.

You can travel to Bern by flying directly to the smaller Bern airport or, the more prominent Geneva, Basel, or Zurich airports and hiring an airport transfer.

Top 5 Locations to Visit in Bern

Bern Cathedral

If you just have a day in Bern and don’t know what to do, check out this cathedral in the Old Town, constructed in the late Gothic style. It is the tallest church in the region, with a bell tower 100 meters high and a massive bell weighing 10 tons and measuring around 2.5 meters in diameter.

The interior design is simple yet fascinating, with stained glass windows, antique furniture, and bas-relief compositions. Tourists are permitted to climb the tower.

Zentrum Paul Klee

For those interested in landscape design, here is some advice on where to go in Bern. The museum devoted to the twentieth-century painter Paul Klee is a vivid example of an alternative approach to exhibition arrangement, which is generally constrained by walls.

The alternate center is shaped like a wave, and the project’s creator refers to it as a landscape sculpture. It is a manicured island with glass and steel hills that houses exhibition halls, theater and music venues, a children’s museum, and conference and seminar halls.


When it comes to the primary attractions of Bern, this palace, known for its Florentine Baroque design, is at the top of the list. The Swiss parliament and the country’s federal government are both housed here. The dome’s size – 62 m – attests to the enormity of the construction. The foyer of the building has sculptures of national historical leaders as well as Swiss canton insignia. Tourists may view Parliamentary sessions from designated galleries.
