The old town of Bern is more than deserving of its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Arranged on a precipice encompassed on three sides by the shocking sea green/blue waters of the Aare River, the old town has protected quite a bit of its medieval character.
The avenues are cobbled and flanked by secured, arcade walkways that snake on for miles.
On the lower levels of the structures are shops, bistros, bookshops, and eateries, while the upper floors are flats.
This old zone is the place a large number of the best vacation spots are found, including the greater part of the scaffolds over the Aare, open wellsprings, old statues, towers, and, obviously, the celebrated Clock Tower.
A few days can be passed cheerfully simply walking around the old town
