ShoreTrips says...

This capital city features Switzerland’s most prestigious buildings and culturally rich sites in the country! If you want a true Swiss experience, Berne is your place.

Explore Berne with a full day tour from Basel. Drive through the Emmental Valley, a dairy farming area where the world-famous Emmental cheese is produced. This region boasts gentle, green pastures, rolling hills, and tiny villages made up of quaint farmhouses.

Learn the secrets of cheese making at the Emmentaler Show Dairy in Affoltern and taste an array of different cheeses. Visit the local handcrafted shop and local bakery that features Swiss specialties and equipment that was used in the cheese-making process over 60 years ago.

Continue the drive to Berne, a Swiss charm dating back to the 12th century. With ancient fountains and beautiful towers, you’re sure to have an unforgettable day. Take a walk down the famous four miles of streets that feature a large collection of shops and artisans.

Visit the numerous sites that make Berne one of Switzerland’s most prized cities: The Houses of Parliament featuring a huge terrace, the Federal Mint, the baroque-style theater, the Clock Tower, the Town Hall, and of course, the Bear Pit! Make your way back to Basel with calm drive through the countryside.
