    Colorful, inspiring, creative, breathtaking: The Rendez-vous Bundesplatz enchants more than 500,000 people every autumn. From October 19 to November 24, 2018, the spectacular sound and light spectacle will enter a new round, illuminating the Swiss Parliament building again in a special light. This year's theme promises emotions and bittersweet quotes that make you think: staged is the world famous, philosophical fairytale "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Go, look, listen and enjoy for free!

    The Federal Palace is a listed symmetrical building complex of just over 300 meters in length. It is considered one of the most important historical buildings in the country and is in the Swiss inventory of cultural goods of national importance, KGS no. 615, listed. It consists of three interconnected buildings in the southwest of the old town of Bern. The focal point is the parliament building on Bundesplatz. In it, the National Council and the Council of States meet, the two chambers of the Federal Assembly. In addition, it serves as a meeting place for the political groups and other purposes belonging to the parliamentary enterprise. The Bundeshaus West on the Bundesgasse is the headquarters of two departments of the Federal Administration as well as the location of the Federal Chancellery and the Parliamentary Library (formerly the Federal Parliamentary and Central Library). The Federal Council also holds its meetings here. Two other departments are headquartered in Bundeshaus Ost on the Kochergasse.
