About the Property

Short Term Rentals in the Best LOCATION in Bern!

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Absolute best location in Bern, right in the heart of the old medieval city of Bern.

We are currently taking many bookings for 2017! Don't hesitate, BOOK NOW!

Please visit our other two AMAZING listings in the same building to see our other apartments and look for special pricing for the winter season!

Listing #508589 (1st Floor above ground level apartment, same building)
Listing #669536 (3rd floor apartment, same building)

FYI: We do not live in these apartments, they are all yours...while you are a guest in our building.

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! Charming and light filled, the apartment can accommodate 1-5 people, 2 on the 160x200 cm (queen) bed and 2 on the sofa bed (double) and lastly one person on a fold-out bed (suitable for smaller adults or children). You will have your own modern kitchen and bath room as well as a large living room, dining room and master bedroom.

On the 1st and 2nd floor, 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 staircase is used by all four apartments in the building, running into anybody between 9:00 p.m. and 8:00 am is very rare. Many guests love this unique aspect as it allows for two seperate living spaces, one side for quiet time and one side for early risers or conversations a little later in the day.

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.
