Location information for Bern

Introduction

The Swiss capital Bern is by far not the largest city in the country. It's got a pretty historical center which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. The medieval scene is dominated by long arched galleries and colorfully decorated fountains.

Population

Bern has over 130,000 inhabitants, but the capital's entire metropolitan area including suburbs has over half a million inhabitants.

Location

Bern is located on the so-called Swiss Plateau in the northwestern part of Switzerland. The old city center was built on a peninsula, surrounded by the Aare River. The mountains nearby the city aren't very high: the Gurten (958 m) and the Bantiger (947 m).

Economy

The city is the seat of the Swiss government and so employment is mainly generated by the civil service and companies in the service industry. Tourism also forms an important pillar of local economy. People not only visit the historical city, but also the picturesque villages in the Bernese Oberland. 

Airports

The airport, Flughafen Bern-Belp, is situated just southeast of the city along the western bank of the Aare. From Bern's center the airport can be reached by rental car via the Sandrainstrasse and then the Seftigenstrasse. It can also be reached via freeway A6 which runs along the eastern bank of the Aare. The exit to Bern-Belp Airport is clearly signposted on both roads.

Public Transport

Bern has excellent public transport, exploited by the city bus company Bernmobil. There are several bus lines and also three streetcar and five trolley bus lines. The S-Bahn maintains connections with the suburbs and surrounding places like Biel, Thun, Fribourg and Solothurn.

Traffic and Parking

It's not difficult to find your way around Bern by rental car, but parking in the city center is terrifyingly expensive, both in the street and in parking garages. A cheaper alternative forms the P + R garage Neufeld on the north side of the city, along freeway A1. From here you can travel to the city center by public transport.

Hotels

Bern has a good choice of hotels, but hotel rooms in the Swiss capital aren't cheap, except for the backpacker hostel Glocke. Midrange and luxurious hotels can be found along the Zeughausgasse.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
