International Club of Berne

Berne Museum Night

Friday, 21st March 2014 at 6:30pm - 11:59pm

Location: Music and shows at many locations in Berne

This event is in the past.

Contact: Graham Tritt

Please register by Wednesday, 19 March

See www.icberne for suggestions of where to go and times to meet. Tickets are 25 CHF (under 16 free) and can be bought in advance from many locations in the city.

Many of Berne's museums are participating in the annual Museum Night, now well established as a popular feature on the city's cultural calendar. The event heralds the Swiss capital's cultural spring, and the general public is invited to enjoy culinary treats in unusual settings and at unconventional hours. The broad range of attractions enables visitors to create their own programmes. Information booklets and tickets are available in advance from Berne Tourism at the railway station and many other places. From 14:00 on Friday, 21 March, tickets are on sale at the event centre on the Bundesplatz. The programme is available online at, though it is much easier to plan the event using the official "Museumsnacht Berne 2014" booklet. Throughout the night, BernMobil and the Oldtimers Auto Club will operate transfer services to and from the museums. See map on back cover of ICB newsletter.

Good fun, saw a lot, some great, some good, some just so-so, but the opportunity to visit all the museums and lots of other places is fantastic. We were 8 persons from Meetup and 2 more from the English club and 3 more from ICB indifferent places. Successful advertising was on

From member Hansruedi Schaad: Hi Graham,

Thank you for the message. At the Museum Night I'm engaged at the Bibliothek am Guisanplatz. As you know I have written a book about Security Policy in the years between the 1960 and 2000. If you are interested in the book you may have a look following the "Waschzettel" to Alexandria. It's recommendable to go to the Index on page 4ff and click on a title you are interested in.

All the best, Hansruedi

You can make your own plans and go where you like - but below I suggest a few places and times to meet up. I had a browse through the programme and here is the path I would like to make (with the numbers of the location and the time I will be there to meet up)

From 6:30 PM the railwaystation down Bollwerk - bridges and stories at the SBB museum (20)

over the Lorraine bridge - origami, fire, crêpes and music at the Botanical Gardens (6) AT 7 PM

[Those going to Guisanplatz (5) and Pyschiatriemuseum (18) or Design School (21) continue by bus.]

Back over the Lorraine bridge and along Hodlerstr to the Art Museum - lots of interesting shows including oriental/world dance (14) AT 8 PM

via the Käfigturm - political questions and music (11)

to the Bundesplatz - a very interesting exhibit of the Sensorium (36), AT 9 PM.

Then via bus or old-timer, to hear music and stories from 1001 nights, at 9.30 PM s at the Paul Klee Center (28)

[Alternative: visit the house of Parliament (7) ]

Then back to the city, and over the Kirchenfeldbridge to Helvetia Place

- rock and roll and grill at the Kunsthalle (13)

- check out the Alpine Museum (1)

- lots at the History Museum (4) and the Natural History Museum (17)

We can get together again AT 11 PM - crepes, music, and a show at the Museum for Communication (16)

On my "maybe" list: Energy Water Bern (29) with some shows (Murtenstr, 100 at 6 PM)
then maybe Cerny Inuit Collection (30) and Theatersammlung (24), and art in Loeb (32)

A bit too far away so not on my list: - video jazz and shows at the HKB ( Bümpliz 10), and the Tram Museums Weissenbühl and Burgernziel (37)
