Hi, is the courtyard or terrace behind the Parliament building (south side) accessible from the Bundesplatz side without going inside of the building? Is there any side passageway for it?
its no problem to go to courtyard for free. you have a Beautiful view over Bern. you can see the montains Eiger, Jungfrau und Mönch.
Yes of course the two are totally independent.
You don't have to go inside of the building to access the courtyard. It is outside and there are good restaurants around it. You can also go from behind the building to catch a glimpse of the beautiful Bern city.
