embassies and consulates A summer stroll through Bern’s diplomatic quarters

The Swiss federal capital Bern is home to nearly 100 foreign embassies and consulates. It also houses missions of autonomous regions like Palestine and Iraqi Kurdistan which are recognised to a greater or lesser extent. 

Some of the buildings are beautiful, some not so beautiful, some large and some small, but they all have a story.

Here we take you on a tour of 10 addresses around the diplomatic quarters of the Swiss capital with some of the most striking facades and interesting stories.
