Bern Hotels for a Great Holiday   by Nancy Eben

The capital city of Switzerland Bern is a beautiful city. The city got its name from the German word for bear. The bear was the first animal hunted during the building of the city. It is a medieval city, founded in the year 1191, around the River Aare. Bern city provides with the finest examples of medieval town architecture in Europe. 

The city has successfully preserved its rich heritage, over the centuries and this is the reason that in 1983 the UNESCO awarded Berne as a World Heritage Site. One can still see some splendid sandstone buildings, beautiful fountains, and historical towers of the gone medieval times in the city. Bern has emerged as a major tourist center in Switzerland and with this; the New Bern hotels provide excellent services with luxurious comforts during the stay in the city. Bern is the most charming city of all the Swiss cities. It is an ideal city for taking a relaxed break over a long weekend. 

The best way to explore the city is on foot, though the city has an excellent rail and road networks. The city streets are adorned, with fountains, clock towers and miles of long arcades. Visitor's can begin the city tour with visiting the stunning 15th century Gothic cathedral. This cathedral has the highest spire in Switzerland, providing excellent views of the Bernese Alps. Berne has quite a few attractions and historic sites, along with an active cultural life. This is the very place, which is world renowned, for the Toblerone chocolate bar, which is made here, and then the Emmental cheese, known as Swiss Cheese, is made here.

Trams on Marktgasse, Bern, Switzerland
The noble dome of the House of Parliament and the Prison Tower are other places of interest in Berne. Berne's Museum of Fine Arts and Berne's Historical Museum are interesting places for historians and those interested to know the country's history. The biggest attraction of the city is the atmosphere. The city traffic is kept at bay, and not allowed in the Old town, giving visitors the freedom to wander on the streets, and explore the city. 

The city also provides with suitable accommodation in its grand five stars to budget hotels. Hotels in New Bern NC offer good value, especially when one can have an inexpensive place and still get a tranquil room overlooking historic cobbled streets, with the sounds from the church bells in the background. It is always recommended to book ahead for New Bern hotels.
