The Bundesplatz is the Government Plaza in Bern, the capital city of Switzerland. It is situated in the Old City of Bern. It is in front of the Swiss Parliament Building. It is a nice place to walk about and see fountains, Swiss central bank and many other important buildings. The place is nice to look at , walk about .

Very nice to see from the outside. Behind the building is a beautiful view. Just remember to reserve ahead if you would like to visit the inside. It is a requirement.

Bundesplatz is the biggest square in Bern and is home to two important national institutions - Swiss Parliament, the Curia Cnfederation Helveticae and the Central Swiss bank edifice next door.
Between them is a nice plaza with fountains and public chairs. Looks great both, day and night.

This is a beautiful courtyard that has a farmer’s market and at night, they play a movie on the building. Cool place to shop at the farmers market.

For those who vote and love this country. There is a great example of democracy inside these walls everyday. And from time to time you are welcome to join their debates.

As its name suggests, the square is located in front of the Bundeshaus. The central bank is nearby, and good photos can be taken from the square itself. There is also a large water cascade suitable for children

I walked around here during my visit to Bern in December 2019. You can get a lot of nice photos here. During the evening there was an ice skating rink and it was fairly active. I would include Bundesplatz on any walk you take around Bern.

This is the place that the foreign dignitaries are often photographed when visiting Berne, just outside the Bundeshaus. The Swiss Bank HQ is nearby.
