About Bern

The fifth largest city on the map of the beautiful country of Switzerland, Bern, proudly looks upon the mighty Alps. This wonderful city to behold is situated on the banks of the alluring river Aare and has been the capital of the country for almost 170 years. This UNESCO listed city is characterized by Sandstone buildings with arcades from the floor. An ancient treasure of around 11 artistically carved fountains, each adorned with a lifelike statue distinguishes the city centre even today. Fascinatingly the city was the home town of the famous physicist Albert Einstein’s in the 20th century and the same shares the fame of his theory of relativity unveiled here. The city claims fame for also being the hometown of globally acclaimed for his artistic excellence, modern artist Paul Klee. The city paid its due tribute to this wonderful artist in creating a museum housing almost half of the creative work ever done by Paul Klee. Boasting unlimited treasures of culture, entertainment and respite Bern undoubtedly scores remarkably high in the entire area of Switzerland.
