Bern, one of the most liveable but THE most loveable city!
In 2019 the Telegraph awarded Bern one of the 20 “greatest cities to live in.” We don’t know why they had to list 19 others. Still, the editor Nigel Richardson is absolutely right about Bern: “The city’s perennial attractions are its state of preservation (essentially it’s a medieval town overlaid with a baroque veneer), which has earned it Unesco World Heritage status; its manageable size (you can walk the Old Town end to end in 20 minutes); and a laid-back, friendly ambience.
By “laid-back,” he probably meant “No schnäll ad Front eis ga zieh” – translation: off to the next roof terrace and make yourself comfortable with a drink. This is the most beautiful way to see Bern. From above! There are different places to be found here: The most beautiful view of the old town and the Bernese Alps is from the Sky Terrace at the Schweizerhof. 360° panoramic view and lounge feeling included. This is the way to celebrate life. And don’t forget our terrace! We have reserved it just for you.
The same applies to a cozy spot on the Aare, which is virtually the main artery of Bern. In addition to countless pop-up bars, there are also classics such as the Klösterli Wine Café or Schwellenmätteli. As if one is lying on a river, one is washed away by the Bernese attitude to life.
The Lorraine quarter, where concert cellars are a must, is also very lively. Many bars and homemade backyard pubs offer space for a mixed audience of different generations.
The rhythm of life in Bern is simply different. For many, it is simply slower. For us, it is more relaxing and very laid-back!
