Our guides show you their city. Come with us on an interesting and unforgettable tour of the embassies and villas of Bern with the innovative Segway!
From the Casino Parking we drive to the Bundesplatz, which lies directly before the Bundeshaus and affords an unobstructed view of the impressive buildings. We drive over the Kirchenfeld Bridge, which, since the 19th century, connected the city center with the then undeveloped Kirchenfeld. As we reach the Kirchenfeldquartier, the emerald green waters of the Aare River come into view.
As a result of a legal directive banning factory building in Kirchenfeld, the area was settled by the affluent Berner upper class between 1880 and 1920. This spawned the establishment of many amazing archetypal buildings and museums. Together we discover the most beautiful embassy buildings and villas in the area while learning some interesting facts about the political history of Bern.
Our route takes us around the picturesque Egelsee, a Moränensee with an impressive fish population. As we arrive in Obstberg, we have a close-up of the beautiful homes as well as a different view of Bern that many residents have certainly never seen before. We continue our drive along the popular rose gardens, while overlooking the roofs of the UNESCO World Heritage Cultural site of the old city of Bern.
A final drive past the Bärenpark, through the old city and back to our start point at the Casino Parking completes our tour in a total of 3 hours.
