Springtime in the city and region of Bern

The days are getting longer, the birds are chirping, and the trees are starting to blossom – time to go outside! We’re celebrating spring and Bernese joie de vivre with different outdoor activities.


In the mood for an e-bike tour along the e-bike route Radwanderroute 888 – Grünes Band Bern, a spring stroll to the Rosengarten to see (and smell) the roses, or an excursion to one of the capital’s most exciting playgrounds? The destination Bern offers all kinds of activities and experiences for nature lovers.

  • Tipp

    If you spend the night in Bern, you receive a Bern Ticket. It allows you to use public transport for free in the entire city, including the Gurten funicular.

Eating and drinking

Are you tired of root vegetables? Fortunately, an increasingly diverse selection of regional products can be found at Bern’s weekly farmer’s markets now that spring has begun. If you prefer eating out, make yourself comfortable on one of the many cozy restaurant terraces in the destination Bern.

Art and Culture

This year, the Bernese spring is kicking off with a big dose of culture: The Night of the Museums on 17 March will once again see the facades of the Old City lit up and welcome visitors into 37 cultural institutions. But even when the sun rises and the Night of the Museums is over, there are still plenty more events as well as interesting and sometimes bizarre things to discover about Bern, for example on a guided tour of the city.



Browsing for a birthday gift for your best friend in the charming little shops of Bern’s UNESCO-listed Old City or visiting Bern’s farmer’s market to buy regional products such as veggies, meat or fish for a barbecue – going shopping in Bern is so much fun! And the best thing about it: thanks to the 6 kilometres of arcades, shoppers are protected in any weather.


Where to stay

Whether you’re looking for a budget-friendly room in a cozy Emmental hotel, a glamorous suite in the heart of Bern’s Old City, or a stylish accommodation in a trendy neighbourhood: Bern offers everything your heart desires.
