Wander the arcades to the new bear park by the river, walk back and round by the Parliament building to look at the view.
Take a no 9 bus to the little funicular up to Gurten and again see the view over Bern. Check on tours of the Parliament building, see the Cathedral. Depending on the season walk from the bear park up to the Rose gardens.
Details available from the tourist office in the station.

Bern's main attraction is the Old Town (a UNESCO World Heritage). tipsygus gave excellent advice for a walk.

In addition, here are some more attractions:

- Paul Klee Zentrum. A museum dedicated to the work of the cubist painter. Spectacular architecture. www.paulkleezentrum.ch

- The Historical Museum and Einstein-Museum. Historical artifacts, including 7 grat tapestries. And a lot of memorabilia from Albert Einstein who worked for some time in Bern. http://www.bhm.ch/

- The Kunstmuseum. A pretty good collection of paintings, including a great Fra Angelico, paintings from the Swiss painter Hodler and works of the usual suspects (Picasso, Dali, Cezanne..). www.kunstmuseumbern.ch
