Here is your chance to live like a local in the old city of Switzerland's capital city, Bern. Step outside your front door to discover the city's main attractions like the famous Zytglogge (Renaissance Clock Tower), Münster (Cathedral), Kursaal, Kultural Casino Bern, Concert theater, BärenPark, and Einstein's house where he developed his famous theory of relativity.

Nestled among amazing restaurants, cafés and bi weekly street markets, this apartment has everything you could possibly need and is full of original character as well as all the modern conveniences and furniture and beds are all brand new as of February 2013! Charming and light filled, the apartment can accommodate 1-4 people, 2 on the 160x200 cm (queen) bed and 2 on the sofa bed (double). You will have your own modern kitchen and bath room as well as a large living room, dining room and master bedroom.

In the typical Bernese apartment style the kitchen and bathroom is separated from the bedroom and living room and is accessed by walking across the landing through the house's spiral stairwell. Although, this is communal space, there are only four apartments in the building and running into anybody between 9:00 p.m. and 8:00 am is very rare.

A scant 10 minute walk under the romantic arcades brings you to/from the train station and mere seconds away from all the main tram and bus lines.
