Switzerland - Mittelland (PDF Chapter)
This is the Mittelland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Switzerland guidebook.
At the heart of this central region lies Bern, the laid-back city that few realise is Switzerland’s capital. With its fairy-tale 15th-century, World Heritage–listed Old Town of terraced stone build-ings, covered arcades, clock towers and cobbled streets, it has a remarkably easygoing vibe.
- wander the cobblestone streets of Berner Altstadt, Bern’s beautifully preserved Old Town
- reminisce in Bern about a time not so long ago when smartphones didn’t rule the world at the Museum für Kommunikation
- contemplate the mind of Einstein in the educational Historisches Museum Bern
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Bern, Emmental, Solothurn.
