Tourist Information on the Road
Did you know? Until October 2021, the “I love Bern” pros can be found outside Bern main station’s Tourist Information, too: We’re riding around the city on a cargo bike and stopping at Bernese monuments such as the Zytglogge (Clock Tower), the Bern Minster, and the Bern AnimalPark, Bear Park to provide locals as well as visitors with information and answer questions surrounding their stay in the federal city. If you want to know which bar is known for serving local beers, which museum has an exhibition on highly relevant current topics, or which bus takes you to the university in Länggasse, for example, feel free to approach us – we’re happy to help and share tips and recommendations.
