How to Reach

By Air

There are good transport links to Berne Belp Airport, the city’s small international airport. There are efficient shuttle bus services running to the main train services, and they usually run according to flight schedules. It is also possible to take a short local bus ride to the nearby village of Belp, and then take the train into Berne’s city centre.

By Tram

The public transport system in Bern, known as the Stadtische Verkehrsbetriebe (SVB), is an extensive network of buses and trams. Before boarding the tram, you must by a ticket from the automatic machines, found at each stop. There are two types of ticket; a short-ride ticket is for up to six stops, and a normal ticket is valid for any one-way journey within 45 minutes. The service is very efficient, with trams running every 5 to 14 minutes, travelling over three different lines.

By Bus

Bus services in Bern are part of the Stadtische Verkehrsbetriebe (SVB), a citywide network of buses and trams. The buses here are excellent, frequent and very efficient. Tickets must be purchased from the machines, located at all bus stops. The fare system is the same as the tram ticket system; short rides of six stops and normal tickets, which are valid for a one-way journey, within 45 minutes, are available.

By Taxis

There are plenty of taxis in the city, but with the city easily explored on foot and the excellent network of trams and buses, taxis are really only used by visitors going out of the city centre. Taxis can be hailed on the street or booked in advance. Always establish the fare before starting your journey. The main taxi ranks are on Casinoplatz and at the railway station.

A must visit place for all the tourist going to Swiss. The place is a beauty of nature with its shining snow, scenic mountains. The view from the top is a feel of never ending beauty. The highest place in Europe is Jungfraujoch, which is, 3,454 meters. Jungfrau can be visited by train from Interlaken (Interlaken Ost – Lauterbrunnen – Kleine Scheidegg – Jungfraujoch – Grindelwald – Interlaken Ost). The whole train ride is enjoyable with a scenic view. There is a sphinx observatory on the top, at Jungfrau. There is an ice cave too with exhibits and sculptures fully made out of snow, which is a rare thing to see and which children really enjoy. Adding to it there is a self service restaurant and a coffee stand. There is a snow paradise out from an opening. Sometimes it is full of fog, so check before going as if there is too much fog; one can’t take full advantage of the view.
