Museums are free every Saturday in August

Summer really kicks off towards the end of Bern's summer holidays! Bern's museums will be throwing open their doors on Saturdays in August to offer people countless opportunities to enjoy free, short outings. This free-of-charge promotion is aimed at the general public, but especially also at families and young people. Museums, castles, parks and gardens – a total of seventeen institutions affiliated with the Association of Museums in Bern Canton will be participating in this promotion which has been made possible through the support of the Burgergemeinde Bern (Civic Community of Bern) and 'Museen Bern'. Free museum admissions on these Saturdays in August: 4.8., 11.8., 18.8. and 25.8.

A weekend dedicated to the UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage

Celebrate with us on the 9th and 10th June 2018 the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Switzerland! World Heritage sites are witnesses of land and human history. They tell the origin of the country and are part of the Swiss identity. Each of these places represents authenticity, quality and diversity through generations. Despite their uniqueness, these World Heritage sites have one thing in common: the universal value that they share with the world community.

During the third edition of World Heritage Days, the World Heritage Sites will open their doors and invite you to discover their secrets, their uniqueness and their extraordinary value.
