Walk along the riverbanks, enjoy an ice cream and sample some culture – you don’t have to be a water baby to enjoy the Aare in Bern.
The famous “Bernese attitude to life” is hard to put into words; it’s something you have to experience for yourself. And where better to do this than on the banks of the Aare? Take a stroll along the river and soak up the relaxing and friendly atmosphere for which Bern is famous. If you prefer to live life at a faster pace, why not try a jog along the river instead? Or simply sit and watch the world go by on the terrace at Casa Novo. Located on the banks of the river, this restaurant serves GaultMillau-awarded cuisine. And for dessert, look no further than where the locals themselves go: Gelateria di Berna. This ice cream parlour is universally considered to be the home of the best ice cream in the whole of Switzerland
