As often not known by many, Bern (and not Zurich or Geneva) is the capitol of Switzerland and a must see on every Switzerland trip (which was proven by the bus loads of tourists we have seen during the day).
We took the train on a Thursday morning from Olten to Bern. A lot of Swiss would tell you that in Bern everything moves a bit slower (especially compared to hectic and very business oriented city of ...
