This train station is the entry way into the magnificent city of Bern. It is very easy to navigate around inside the station, and easy to find your way out to the city. From here, you have the city laid out in front of you.

Arriving by train you are met with long passageways full of little shops and confusing signs. Not one I care to repeat.

The remodel of the Bern Train Station has resulted in a very clean and organized (and could you expect anything else from the Swiss) traveling experience.

Bern’s station is embarrassing compared to the likes of Zurich’s HB station. It is not clean and my train departed late. In addition, the station has some shady characters hanging around. Bern station, however, is a good connecting point to Interlaken and the Bernese Oberland...More

Not sure what else there is to say other than clean and efficient. I had great luck with both the SBB Information desk and with the general TI at the station. Both were very fast overall and helpful in English.

Very easy to get around, Everything is well marked and has a big reader board in the center. As a side note, remember that train stations charge to use the WC, so plan ahead. :)

I like the shopping area of the station and most likely it is your rescue when you miss an ingredient at the weekend. But during the week it is ok, too. It is interesting what they offer and there is a bakery with very, very...More

The station is very big, almost like the one in Zurich. There are many trains and buses connection. The station is close to Bern oldtown and many tourists attractions. There are also many shops, restaurants, and cafe inside the station.

This is a good station that’s easy to navigate and very kid-friendly! Lots of shops - from bakeries to coffee shops; from groceries to chocolate specialties!

often it would be sufficient as the trains are prompt but always as a golden rule allow extra time for contingency.

You can take the train from Bern to Barcelona. Bern to Geneva to Lyon to Barcelona so only 2 changes but it takes approximately 9 hours. Unfortunately I have no cost information. You could also get the train from Bern to... More
