Located in the north-western part of Switzerland and with mountain peaks reaching over 4000 meters the canton of Bern has two official languages: German and French. It is here, in the Valley of the river Emme, that Emmental cheese is being produced. The canton of Bern has more than one million inhabitants and 346 municipalities. The main town : Bern. Its economy is flourishing thanks to research (the canton being home to the biggest companies as well as universities and schools) and tourism. Just think how nice it would be to have an appartment right by the river Aare surrounding the old city of Bern.
