Swimming in the Aare

A dip in the chilly waters is the best way of freshening up on hot summer days. Floating down the Aare while enjoying the wonderful view of Bern’s old town is a highlight of the summer for residents and tourists alike.


Oktogon Hammam & Spa

The Bern Oktogon Hammam & Spa aims to keep the spirit of oriental bathing alive and boasts a hammam and day spa. A day ticket provides entry to the hammam, with spa treatments an optional extra. The Bern Oktogon Hammam & Spa is situated just below the Bundesterrasse.

Bern’s nightlife is varied and exciting, with trendy clubs hidden behind venerable sandstone facades as well as countless bars, discos and pubs.
