The Rose Garden is a picturesque park above the BearPits and has been home to these elegant flowers since 1917. Why not take a moment to relax and read a book from the Rose Garden’s own library. It is only a short stroll from the park to the Old Town of Bern, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage
. Sheltered by the 6-km-long shopping promenade, these arcades are called the “Lauben” and are perfect for exploring the Old Town with its architectural highlights, such as the fountains and bay windows with Renaissance features. The Clock Tower (Zytglogge) is in the heart of the Old Town and is undoubtedly a highlight for all ages with its hourly show of moving figures. A visit to one of the many museums is also worthwhile as it is not without reason that Bern is a stronghold of culture. There are plenty of museums to choose from.
