It's been upgraded recently to produce a better environment for the bears- they now have access to more space and a limited region of the river. Bern, like the rest of Switzerland, is well-organized and friendly, making it a terrific location to get a motorhome trip- and the magnificent scenery where the country is famous! 

Beyond the center, Bern has a great deal more to offer. Among the most fascinating and distinctive of Bern's many museums and art galleries is the Zentrum Paul Klee, a museum devoted to the intriguing works of one artist, Paul Klee. The center has been created by Italian Architect Renzo Piano and takes the form of a string of 3 waves that blend into the landscape.  

Bern is near to plenty of lakes, and a few other amazing swiss cities. One of them is Interlaken, a gorgeous spot sandwiched between two lakes and the Oberland Alps. The impressive Jungfrau mountain rises over the city, and lots of mountain railways begin in Interlaken, including the Jungfraujoch.  

Walks along the shores of Lake Thun and Brienz are an excellent way to see the beauty of the region, and several adventure sports are offered: paragliding, river rafting, bungy jumping, and more.
