Bern Airport from Wikipedia

A few words about the city of Bern

The city of Bern is the capital of Switzerland and the main city of the canton Bern, the second most populous of Switzerland's cantons. With its approx. 400'000 inhabitants (incl. agglomeration), Bern is only the fourth most populous city. The official language is the "Swiss German", a spoken language in Switzerland with approx. 25 regional dialects. The city is located on an attitude of approx. 540km. Since 1983, the historic old town in the center of Bern is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is also home of the Swiss government. It must be mentioned that the city belongs to the top 10 of the worlds city in terms of quality of life. 

 

Why Bern Airport

Bern airport  - or also called Belp airport - used to be a little, regional airport. Today it serving Bern and many cities around the capital. The airport is located in the agglomeration, more precisely in Belp (which is why it is also called Belp Airport). It lies on an altitude of 510 meter above sea. Due to its geographical location, right in front of the mountains, it risks to have very often fog during winter season. Due to this circumstance, often the planes cannot land in Bern/Belp airport. The official operator of the airport is ALPAR Flug- und Flugplatz- gesellschaft AG. 

Bern/Belp airport does not provide many commercial international flights. However, it offers flights to some European metropolitan and several leisure destinations such as Munich, Köln, Amsterdam, London City, Palma de Mallorca and more. Due to its limited size, the core advantage for its customers is, that the check in time is very short. 20 minutes prior to check in is enough at the Bern airport, isn't that great? Bern airport handles approx. 250'000-300'000 passengers per YEAR, rather small compared to the approx. 75 mio. of London Heathrow Airport or even the  26 mio. of Zurich airport. The airport serves as the homebase for SkyWork Airlines and a base for Helvetic Airways. In addition there is Etihad Regional, bmi regional, Lufthansa and Germania Flug. The airport profits from its surrounding holiday resorts and attracts quite a few private plane landings. Also the politicians profit of the airport when flying into Bern for diplomatic meetings. 

The airport offers a little kiosk/shop and a bistro. It also has a restaurant next door. There is also a rent-a-car-station right at the airport. In terms of public transportation, Bern airport isn't the greatest. There is only a bus which brings you to the capital center within some 20 minutes. In addition, there is a taxi stand. However there is no train. 

From the airport, it takes about 15 minutes to Bern city, 20 minutes to Thun, approx. 1h to Zurich and 1 hour 15 Minutes to Lausanne by car.

A few words about the city of Geneva

Geneva, Genève or Genf - as the Germans call it - is Switzerland's second largest city and one of the global financial centers. Situated where the Rhône exits Lake Geneva, it is the capital city of the Canton of Geneva (GE). In 2015, the municipality (ville de Genève) has totaled approx. 200'000 inhabitants.

The Schtroumpfs Buildings, the stunning view of Lake Geneva and the Alps are just two must sees during your stay in Switzerland. This city really has a lot to offer. It is the city with the Headquarter of many NGOs and international corporations. 

 

Why Geneva airport

Geneva Airport (GVA), also known as Cointrin Airport, is the second biggest international airport of Switzerland. It is located 4 km northwest of the city center. It reached 15 million passengers for the first time in December 2014 and serves as a hub for Swiss International Air Lines, easyJet Switzerland and Etihad Regional. Geneva offers flights mainly to European cities and leisure destinations. Even long-haul flights to North America, China and the Middle East exist.

The special thing about GVA airport is, that its northern limit runs along the Swiss–French border. Therefore the airport can be accessed from both countries. The freight operations are also accessible from both countries, making Geneva a European Union freight hub although Switzerland is not a member of the EU.

The airport offers also a rather big private plane part, where one can find TAGaviation, JETaviation, ExecuJETs, GlobalJets and more. 

Furthermore the aiport offers a nice (duty free) shopping area and a handful of restaurants. The hotel Mövenpick is 5mins away and very practical. The airport has an excellent connection to public transportation.

The road from Geneva airport to Gstaad is marvelous. It takes about 2 hour (155km). On one hand, you will have an exceptional view on the Swiss and French Alps right after you reach the highway. On the other side, there is the beautiful Lac Léman - or Lake of Geneva how some people tend to call it - which is stunning, especially on sunny days. By looking at it, you feel like you are on holidays. Between Geneva and Lausanne, you would pass by Rolle, where the international boarding school Rosey can be seen. The Riviera from Lausanne to Montreux is fabulous. You will see a lot of vineyards, some of which we can highly recommend visiting! There are amazing restaurants on the way, which we consider a MUST whilst visiting Switzerland. Vevey is a lovely city we pass by. From the highway, one can see the headquarter of the famous company Nestle. In addition, there is also the Charlie Chaplin foundation and museum in Vevey. The old town with the market is also nice to experience. Our driver would love to take you there. Once we pass Vevey, the journey continues on the highway direction Bern. Our exit, however, is Bulle/Gruyere. Bulle developed to a industrial little city. Once we pass Bulle, we arrive in Gruyere with the famous and beautiful Chateau Gruyere. This is an excellent day trip from Gstaad, or even a good stop on the way to Gstaad. It offers a nice historical museum, delicious restaurants offering tasty fondues in an monumental environment. Also you have the little museum of Mr Giger, the head designer of the movie Alien. Close by the chateau, there is the production of the Gruyere cheese, also something you should see when you are in our region. Some 15 minutes away is the little village Broc, home to the chocolate factory Caillier. The chocolate paradise is worth an excursion, especially with little kids. But also the parents and more mature people love chocolate, so it is a win win for everybody. Once we pass by Gruyere and Broc, the curvy road leads us up to Rossiniere, where the famous artist Balthus (Balthasar Klossowski de Rola) lived during his last period of his life. the so-called Grand Chalet is still owned by the family and can be visited. It is an amazing house and used to be the biggest chalet for a long time in our region. Approximately 10 mintues, Chateau D'Oex will be reached and after that Rougemont. This is where the "Gstaad" agglomeration starts. A lot of our guests and visitors live here. Rougemont in particular grew very much during the last few years. It is also the boarder village of the Canton de Vaud. The next place is Saanen, the commune of Saanenland - Gstaad. Ever since we Saanen built the pedestrian zone, it became an incredibly charismatic place with lots of local shops and restaurants. It sort of reminds our guets on Gstaad some 10-20 years ago! Speaking of which: once Saanen is behind us, 5 minutes later, we will enter Gstaad. Welcome, and enjoy your stay in our region!

Once you arrive at your destination, the driver will assist you with the luggage. He will offer you to take you back when every you plan to go.
