A long tradition

I still remember it very well. For me, the trip to the BEA has always been one of the highlights of the year: going there with public transport, the Ferris Wheel (even if most of the time, I only admired it from the ground), watching how the Berlin balls, as well as all the works of art made of vegetables in the Green Centre, are made. And all this isn't even a fraction of what there is to see at the BEA - aptly formulated for me on the website «Unforgettable moments».

Ferris wheel at the BEA

Every year, more than 300'000 visitors come to the fair, which opened its doors for the first time on September 1st 1951. A large audience is once again expected this year. From Friday, April 26 to Sunday, May 5 2019, there will be many attractions, innovations and traditions to discover every day from 9 am to 6 pm, such as the BEA Horse. Night owls will also get their money's worth. Until 0.30 am there will be a bar and a festival. On Fridays and Saturdays, it can even be celebrated until 3.30 am.

Bern's largest shopping paradise 
As a child, shopping was of secondary importance to me and yet, I have always been fascinated by all the whirlpools, garden furniture, coffee machines and everything else on display. In almost 1'000 shops or stands, you will get advice, you will get the opportunity to test or compare new products and profit from attractive discounts. All that comes with the advantage that everything can be found in one place for 10 days: on the BEA Expo grounds in Bern.
