Nowhere else in the world do beautiful moments last as long as in the canton of Berne. Among the 26 cantons in Switzerland, Bern is known for its cosiness and versatility. This also applies to hiking: Take a step back and enjoy the varied landscape. Traditional mountain huts, imposing glacier gorges and numerous theme hiking routes for families with children await you here. Put on your hiking boots and discover the most diverse canton in Switzerland!

In June 2019, six adventurous bloggers will each be exploring a spectacular hiking route in various Swiss regions: Climb the Mythen near Lucerne, enjoy the view from the San Salvatore in Ticino or a relaxed rail hiking trip? Switzerland also has something for every type of hiker in the Valais, Graubünden and Bern region, with a wide variety of hiking trails to choose from — the path quickly becomes the destination! Discover here the different tours in the Bern region and visit glittering mountain lakes with "Freiseindesign" (bhc2019.myswitzerland.com/region/bern/)!

There's also a great competition: Test your knowledge of Switzerland and win your very own personal trip to Switzerland for two: With SWISS you fly to Switzerland, where you will explore the Bern region and Ticino. A total of five overnight stays await you at the Handeck Hotel and Natural Resort and the Hotel Belvedere Locarno.
