Arrival by train

If you prefer to be driven instead of taking the wheel, your best option is to travel by train

There are direct trains several times a day connecting many European cities with the Swiss capital or the Bernese Oberland. Most international trains offer dining cars or a bistro, power outlets and newspaper service. Thus, the visitor’s holidays #madeinbern begin in a perfectly relaxed manner.
