All the important and useful information 

Where are the top sightseeing spots in Bern? Where is the best place to enjoy shopping, dining or culture? As your personal guide through the city of Bern, the Bern Welcome app offers useful information, a detailed city map (incl. augmented reality), inspiration for restaurants, museums and activities in and around Bern, and a what’s-on guide with an overview of current events.

Bern with an augmented reality level 

In the AR area of the app, you can see everything that is round about you, what the building in front of you is called, how far it is to the museum and in which direction you have to walk. Especially for visitors who don’t know the city so well yet, this feature is of great added value and makes finding your way around the city child’s play.

The Bern Ticket for tourists 

Tourists who have a hotel booking in Bern can switch on the Bern Ticket in the app and use it for free public transport during their stay. 

Suggestions depending on the time, the weather and the location

What can we do when it’s raining? Where can I get something to eat at 11pm? What bars are still open close by? The Bern Welcome app always has an idea up its sleeve.
