Bern, a city steeped in culture and history, rests in the heart of Switzerland. Known for its scenic landscapes, intricate architecture, and the Aare River that frames the city, it’s no surprise why this destination is a favourite among travellers.

A British Traveller's Perspective

  • Time Zone: Bern operates on Central European Time, 1 hour ahead of Britain's Greenwich Mean Time.
  • Currency: The Swiss Franc (CHF) is the local currency. Get some exchanged before you travel for convenience.
  • Language: The primary language is German, although English is widely spoken, so language barriers are minimal.

Best time to visit

The ideal time to visit Bern really depends on what you're after:

  • Summer: If you’re eager to experience the city's lively festivals and outdoor attractions, summer is the best time to visit.
  • Winter: For skiing enthusiasts, winter presents the perfect opportunity to explore the snow-clad Swiss Alps nearby.

Exploring with Your Rental Car

Driving in Switzerland can be an absolute joy, whether it's through the bustling cities, scenic countryside, or along the mesmerising mountain routes. Do know that the driving side is right, as in most European countries, unlike Britain's left-hand side driving.

Driving Regulations

Here are some crucial traffic rules you need to know:

  • Seat belts are mandatory.
  • The use of hand-held phones while driving is strictly prohibited.
  • Average speed limits are usually 50km/h in urban areas, 80km/h on open roads, and 120km/h on motorways.

Car Rental Tips

  • Choose a compact car for better manoeuvrability on narrow city streets.
  • Opt-in for GPS to navigate the unfamiliar routes effortlessly.
  • Insurance can come in handy explaining unexpected incidents.

Parking in Bern

Bern's efficient parking system, including numerous public car parks and Blue Zone parking spaces, makes parking your rental car a breeze. However, parking isn’t free, and it’s advisable to carry some Swiss Franc coins.

Enthralling Attractions

Bern is home to a broad range of attractions, sure to cater to every kind of traveller. Visit the Bear Park, Einstein House, Gurten Hill and the Old Town – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for a taste of what Bern can offer.
