Spending a quiet sunday afternoon in the old town of Burgdorf, where Pestalozzi a famous Swiss Pedagogue lived there and started with several educations projects from there.
It's a lovely typical old Zähringer Town with nice and lovely Cafes and restaurants and Shops. There are really a plenty of attraction to see and the view from the castle is amazing.

Architecturally speaking, the building is great and worth a look. At least from outside or in the lobby for free. Unfortunately, there is a little to see inside : just a few works from the great artist Franz Gertsch and a temporary exhibition. A library and a cafe are also available. That is it. I found the entrace fee CHF 12 too high for the little I saw and was a bit disappointed. The museum is located about 5 to 10 minutes walk from Burgdorf train station.

Adventure cheese routeOn the Emmental cheese route you will learn exciting stories and information about the centuries old tradition of the Emmentaler cheese.With the rented FLYER e-Bike you will pass the one- or two day-tour without efforts.
We did the emmentaler cheese cycling route on e bikes hired from the velostation in burgdorf( a short train ride from Bern) and we had a fantastic day! Cycling in Swiss countryside between dairy farms through rolling hills with beautiful views of the Swiss alps and the sound of cow bells what more could you want!! It took us 5 hours and we used the 'app' which uses your gps on your phone so you don't need Internet/wifi to do it. We couldn't have done it without the app as it come with Map and directions as well as interesting info on each stop. Lunch was at an old cheese farm the emmental show dairy we had raclette and there were plenty of local dishes on the menu. It was so nice to get out of the city for a day and experience country Swiss life we would highly recommend this as a day trip from Bern.

Burgdorf is a model of historic town planning, with a feudal high town between the castle and the church mound, and a low town at the foot of the castle rock, where the tradesmen were based. Today the station district and historic centre with its intimate squares are popular places for shopping and strolling, for entertainment and all kinds of markets and culinary delights.
This late gothic pillar basilica is the largest religious building in the city of Burgdorf. It was build from 1471 - 1490 by Niklaus Birnenvogt who was also master builder at the minster of Berne.
