Meet your guide at your hotel and transfer to Lucerne train station.

Follow the path down to the Bear Park and see the animal that gives Bern its name. Cross the Aare river and stroll through the arcades full of small and curious shops, before continuing to the Town Hall. See Albert Einstein's home and explore the hidden alleyways between the buildings that tell you stories about former life in the old town. 

On the way to the Federal Parliament, stop at the Clock Tower to see the astronomical clock dating back to the early 15th-century. Marvel at the beautiful terraces of the of the Federal Parliament and take in the stunning view, that normally only the Swiss politicians see.
