The city centre has retained much of its medieval look, the centrepiece of which is the Zytglogge, an ancient clock tower built 800 years ago, and is one of Bern's main tourist attractions because it is so well preserved despite its age. The clock tower was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and a one hour guided tour is available. Make sure you are able to do and see everything that you can during your holiday in Bern, Switzerland. Auto Europe offers Bern rental car pick up locations and a large car hire fleet for you to choose from.
Take the day to go shopping in Bern. A short drive down to Old Town will bring you to the 6 kilometres long covered shopping promenade, which is one of the longest shopping arcades in all of Europe. Vendors line both sides of the street, and along the way, there is music, and a fun, lively atmosphere.
After spending the morning shopping, be sure to head over to see the Münster, an incredible 15th-century Gothic Cathedral. At 100 metres, the cathedral has the tallest spire in Switzerland, which wasn't completed until 1893. The incredibly ornate architectural style of the building is truly amazing, so make sure you don't miss a chance to see the Münster.
Another popular destination in Bern is the Einstein house. See where the famous scientist worked out his Theory of Relativity. Einstein lived there between 1903 and 1905 and described this period of his life as the happiest and most fruitful. Guided tours are readily available throughout most of the year, and appointments can be scheduled for off time viewings.
