Switzerland - Mittelland (Chapter)
This is the Mittelland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Switzerland guidebook.
This flat, unassuming ‘middle ground’ holds Switzerland’s capital. One of the world’s most charming capitals, Bern shines with a fairy-tale-like 15th-century Old Town. The surrounding countryside is as benignly beautiful, with traditional villages and farms speckling the rolling green hills.
