Travel Tips from people who've been to Bern
Rent a Bike
There are several places throughout Bern to rent a bike for the day. When arriving in Bern via train you’ll see a lot of bike rentals right outside the station. It’s a relatively small city and therefore navigating the streets on a bike is a great way to get acclimated with the area. It’s also a biking city, so if you’re driving in the city beware of riders and pedestrians for that matter. After you’re finished exploring the city ride up into the surrounding hills for spectacular views of the area. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.Equipment: Rent a bike from one of the rental places near the train station.
do it the easy bernoise style: sure you visit the *Bärengraben* (yes it's small - but soon the poor bears gonna have a bigger new terrain with access to the river) and afterwards stroll through the old village, do some serious shopping (or windowshopping if low on budget), walk by Bundeshaus (Swiss Parliament) stop at one little charming cafes/bars on one of the small streets called "Gassen" and drink a local beer, white wine or cappuccino - generally take it nice easy in swiss capitol city.
eat a *Fondue* or *Gschwellti garniert, mit Käse und gemischtem Salat* at Restaurant Harmonie www.Harmonie.ch. and dance later that night at a DubquestSession www.dubquest.com in www.Dampfzentrale.ch or alternatively check www..Sous-Soul.ch, for small concerts check www.ISC-Club.ch and for bigger ones www.Bierhuebeli.ch
