Unfortunately we arrived too late for a tour. The building is impressive and there are some spectacular views in the rear of the building.

The Bundeshaus is a must visit when in Bern. This is where the Swiss Federal Council is housed. One can book a guided tour inside the building to learn more about the history of Swiss federation and how it all started. The front side of the building is where you find the flea market and cafes.. the backside has a magnificent view perfect for sunset

Walked passed and saw some children playing in the fountain in front.
A little hard to get nice pictures of the building due to the lighting.

Quite a beautiful building in a reachable area!!! The water fountain on the square give a different note to the area. A place to visit and at walking distance from the center of Bern. Nearby you can find good restaurants yo either eat or take a cup of coffee.
