What a waste of time.

3. You're honestly better off sticking to a European town with actual historical significance.

Einsteinhaus is a museum and the former residence of some dude called Albert Einstein, who might've dabbled in physics, IDK.

4. Because truth be told, there's nothing remarkable to see or do here.

6. The outdoors in Bern are a huge bummer.

7. They have nothing I couldn't see in my own town.

The lawn in front of the House of Parliament is a popular spot to sunbathe and wonder why you ever considered such a dreary and stressful destination.


9. Literally nothing ever happens here.

11. There is zero art scene.

I mean, apart from the oldest art museum in Switzerland, a couple of art spaces, and local events like this Drink 'n Draw series. The Swiss are not known for much in the art or design world, so I guess they have to start somewhere.

12. They call this art?!

17. I don't even understand why Einstein considered this plain rose garden to be one of his favorite spots.

18. There's not a single romantic corner in the entire city.

20. And don't get me started on the food.

21. How can they stand this stuff?!

22. No wonder everyone here looks like the pinnacle of health.

23. Switzerland is supposedly one of the happiest countries in the world, but Bern basically proves why the survey is a straight-up lie. / Via

24. All the locals probably bike because they're hoping to skip town at the earliest possible opportunity.

From May to October, the city loans bikes to visitors who are itching to escape the city for free.


25. I'd honestly cry from disappointment if I traveled halfway around the world for this view.

27. And in all seriousness? You're better off elsewhere.
