The Kornhausbrücke is a road bridge in the Swiss capital of Bern. It spans the river valley of the Aare and connects the old town in district I with the quarters Altenberg, Spitalacker and Breitenrain of district V to the north. It is named after the Bernese Kornhaus, leads from the Kornhausplatz, where the Stadttheater Bern is located next to the Kornhaus, to the Viktoriaplatz and is 382 m long. It is an arch bridge with steel half-timbered arches and overhead, elevated carriageway.

  • The focus here is not the bridge itself, but it is the snowy mountain range on the far background because they are illuminated in pink color during sunset, making it a very special view.
  • Visibility of the sunset is not possible as it is facing the wrong direction, it can only catch the color of the twilight.
  • Area is well connected with public transport.
  • There will not be any crowd at all on the bridge but occasion pedestrians walking by.
