Hi. Note that Disambiguation does not work the same way here that it does at Wikipedia. Although there is also a Canton Bern, we have two different articles for it, the Bernese Highlands and the Bernese Lowlands. This corresponds to the way the Swiss travel office divides up the country and so we've adopted it here as well. -- (WT-en) Mark 16:11, 4 Feb 2006 (EST)

Thanks for the information, i know that many things works not the same way as in Wikipedia, but i do live in Bern and cant understand the divides of the tourist office (ok its an office, its not logical).

The Canton of Bern has more to offer than lowland & highland.
To count Bienne & Bern in the same part is a bit strange for someone that live in the area (but at a small point understandable).

I was visiting the Site and found the List of Swiss cantons this made me belife the target is to add every canton the wikivoyage.

I am Sorry, if i did too mutch but it was logical.

Guys, sorry but what the heck! I cannot edit this page anymore! It keeps hitting the spam filter even if I contribute a simple triviality like:

"Flying to Berne directly is the exception though. You're probably better advised to fly in to Switzerland through Zurich Airport and take a direct train to Berne (takes you 1h30 max), or alternatively Geneva Airport (roughly 3h by train). See below."

C'mon, what's going on here.... This is content that has relevance for a foreign traveler. I live here, and I don't think I know anyone who's ever landed on Belp.

Somebody accidentally added " " to the spam blacklist. It's fixed now (or otherwise you couldn't even write the comment above!). (WT-en) Jpatokal 06:46, 15 August 2006 (EDT)


The article states that the official English spelling is Berne, yet the name of the article is Bern, and the text uses both spellings here and there. We need to decide for sure which to use and be consistent with it. Any opinions? (WT-en) Texugo 10:03, 15 April 2008 (EDT)

I'd go for Berne for consistency. (WT-en) Jpatokal 10:55, 15 April 2008 (EDT)
I have renamed it to Berne and as far as possible changes all references to it to reflect the change. There was a lot of inconsitency, about half of references used Berne and the the other Bern. Should be a lot cleaner now. --(WT-en) Nick 12:03, 21 April 2008 (EDT)

The article says that Einstein's both special and the general theories of relativity were born here. I believe that this is not correct, since the general theory of relativity was only published in 1915, well after Einstein left Bern. Can anyone rectify? Thanks.

I think it should be Bern, it's way more popular and it's what Wikipedia and English versions of official websites use. Jjtkk (talk) 08:00, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
