Visit Bern - The Capital of Switzerland

Bern (also Berne - the official French and English spelling), the capital of Switzerland, is a small- to medium-sized city with a population of about 130,000. It sits on peninsula formed by the meandering turns of the river Aare. The remarkable design coherence of the Berne's old town has earned it a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It features 4 miles of arcaded walkways along streets decked out with fountains and clock-towers.

The main language spoken in Berne is Bernese-German, one of the many Swiss-German dialects which all vary greatly not only from what the Swiss call Hochdeutsch/High German, but also among each other. Because of these differences, even Germans are often not able to follow Swiss-German talking. Like all Swiss-German dialects, Bernese-German is only a spoken language. For writing, the standard German (Hochdeutsch/High German) is used.

By popular demand among the Swiss (especially the young), Swiss-German is more and more often used as a written language in advertisements and personal communications as well, though as no particular spelling for the words exist, one can write whatever seems appropriate. In schools and Universities, children and students are taught only using standard German, so Swiss-Germans can understand their northern neighbors from Germany, if not the other way around.

English seems to be supplanting French as the favorite second language of the Bernese, but both are widely spoken, especially as the canton of Berne is a bilingual canton (German/French), and Berne itself is only about 12 kilometers from the nearest French-speaking village.
