Create an itinerary including Bundesplatz
The Bundesplatz (literally: the "Federal Square") is the Government Plaza in Bern, de facto the capital city of Switzerland. It is situated in the Old City of Bern, the medieval city center of Bern. It is part of the Innere Neustadt which was built during the second expansion in 1255 to 1260, though the plaza was not built until much later. It is located in front of the Bundeshaus, the Swiss Parliament Building, and it is part of the UNESCO Cultural World Heritage Site that encompasses the Old City.

  • Very nice to see from the outside. Behind the building is a beautiful view. Just remember to reserve ahead if you would like to visit the inside. It is a requirement.
