We are flying into Basel and heading to Bern for a concert. We will be there for two nights. Any suggestions on tours or food in Bern that a teenager would like would be really helpful. WE both love cheese and chocolate and never really had fondue before! Our big dilemma is what to do for the next two days. We can stay in Bern and look at day trips or we can move on to another spot before we take a train to Milan. We have a Saturday and Sunday to do anything at all and have looked at so many train routes, and tours that I am now so confused. Keeping in mind Monday morning we need a train to Milan...any suggestions on where we should head next. Any train routes you suggest that make sense. Thanks so much!

Hi Shannoncrate,

if you like chocolate and cheese, go to Gruyeres for a day trip. You'll find there a cute medieval old town and a cheese factory (Maison Gruyere). You can try fondue there. Then go to Broc, where you'll find the chocolate factory of Cailler.

If you go to Maison Cailler on the weekend, make sure, to book your ticket in advance, so you do not have to wait for that much to get in.

On your other day you can visit the Jungfrau region: www.myswissalps.com/jungfrauregion/activities.

As you are going to Italy after that, have a look at this one too: www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/italy

I hope this helps,

In your other thread you also asked about the rail passes. First, you should know your itinerary, and then you can decide about the rail pass. Usually for a short stay in different regions, we recommend the Swiss Travel Pass. You can read about it here: www.myswissalps.com/swisstravelpass. Make sure to check the validity map on the validity label of that page.

If you are not familiar with the Swiss train system, please have a look at www.myswissalps.com/train/practical/howtotravel.

Take care,
