Bern is a city located in Switzerland. While the capital of Switzerland, Bern is only the fifth biggest city in the country, with a population of roughly 140,000. As a result, Bern has managed to retain many of its beautiful historic buildings and quaint scenery. Bern's old town is full of charming landmarks with peaceful riverside views across the Aare. Due to its stunning architecture, Bern's old town has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Bern was first founded in the 12th century by Berchtold V, Duke of Zähringen. Historians are unsure where the name "Bern" originated. Folklore suggests that the city was named after the first animal Berchtold hunted after founding the city, a bear. Others believe the name may originate from the Celtic word for cleft. Some historical evidence supports the first theory, as a bear has been featured on Bern's coat of arms since the 13th century.

Bern Minster - Bern Minster is one of Bern's top sights and for good reason. Construction of Bern Minster began in the late 15th century and took over 150 years. This vast Gothic cathedral is the largest in Switzerland, at over 300 feet tall. Inside the cathedral, visitors can climb the 312 steps up to the spire's observation deck, which affords sweeping panoramic views of Bern.
Bern Minster is packed with awe-inspiring stained glass windows, frescos, and carvings. One of the highlights of the cathedral is the main altar. The altar was crafted by Erhart Küng, and depicts the Last Judgement. This highly elaborate piece of craftsmanship boasts nearly 300 individual sculptures. You won't want to lug around a bag while admiring this incredible building, so stop by a Bern luggage storage service before taking a tour.
Einsteinhaus - See how one of the brightest minds of the 21st century lived at the Einsteinhaus. The Einsteinhaus is the former residence of Albert Einstein, who lived in a second-story apartment in Bern from 1903 to 1905. This period is notable as it was in this apartment that Einstein first penned to his thoughts of the theory of relativity. The apartment has been renovated to look as it did when Einstein lived there, from the decor to the photos on the wall. After taking a look around Einstein's home, head up to the third-floor exhibition, which contains artifacts belonging to Einstein, and informational plaques about his life. Large bags are prohibited inside Einsteinhaus, so ensure you swing by a Bern luggage storage service first.
Zytglogge - Located at the center of Bern's scenic old town, Zytglogge is one of the city's most recognizable monuments. Zytglogge is a 13th-century clock tower, with classic Baroque and Gothic features. Throughout history, the tower has been used for many different things, including as a prison. The tower's best feature is the astronomical clock, which contains tiny figurines that pop out and dance around whenever it chimes on the hour.
Visitors are also welcome to step inside the clock tower and take a guided tour. This tour will take you to see the clock's intricate mechanisms and teach you the history of this medieval tower. At the end of the tour, you can climb the 130 steps to the top of Zytglogge and enjoy vistas of the old town's rooftops.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
