Bern City Run

Go for a run through Bern’s Old City and discover the many landmarks and attractions – the wow factor is guaranteed on our two favourite City Run routes.

Two birds with one stone: in Bern, combining exercise and culture is easy. Past the Zytglogge (Clock Tower) and the Bern Minster to the BearPark and the Parliament Building – the City Runs take you to through the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you’ve got time, we recommend the longer route (7 kilometres): the short ascent to Rosengarten is steep, but you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular view of Bern’s Old City.

  • Tipp

    Bern’s streets are calmest in the evenings or early in the morning.
