Efficient and ultra-civilised

Berne (or Bern, depending on which language you’re speaking) is, in common with many Swiss cities, a friendly, efficient and ultra-civilised place in which to spend some time. Perched beautifully on the banks of the River Aare, it’s full of pretty terraced streets, red-tiled roofs, genteel shopping arcades, well-kept gardens and beautiful fountains. No wonder the entire Old Town is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
