Owner description: The social heart of the city, this public square is named for the bear, the animal that serves as Bern's symbol.

This is one of Bern's main attraction, it means Federal Square in English. This central plaza is lively and busy specially in summer where you can see kids and kids at heart playing at the water fountain guns around. There are plenty of cafes and restaurant around to chill, relax and enjoy the scene.

The Bundesplatz is the beating heart of Bern and of Switzerland, and the adjacent Baerenplatz has a very nice open air market - the buildings surrounding the Bundesplatz are serious, especially the Swiss National ank building (currently under restauration - no worries, the Swiss franc stays strong as ever!).

I am always passing by BundesPlatz. The open pieces in the building of the F-Parlement, gives you a good overview of the city of Bern and feels like you are looking to an very nice painting. Would definitely recommend

Again the fountains. Well of course the building is incredible beautiful but just go for the fountains and cool down in the summer heat. And most likely you find others to share in the funn o
f the fountain jets.

One of the largest squares in Bern, when there is a lot of bars, shops and restaurants. At day time you can enjoy the sun and at night you can enjoy the night light show at 19:00 and at 20:30 every day.
