If you’re more like a nature person or if you want to have a full packed day of fun, we also have a nice walk along the famous Aare river (river that crosses Bern) that you can do. You’ll be able to get to the outskirts of Bern and walk in a calm and peaceful environment before coming back to the city center. Here is the itinerary for the hike.
