Safety first

Securitas has been assisting us since 2011 with the construction of Rendez-vous Bundesplatz and providing security. The city of Bern is also involved and is keeping watch over Bundesplatz. To ensure that the performances can take place unhindered on the big stage, all public and private traffic will be diverted during this time.

Many thanks to Securitas and the City of Bern for their commitment.

Just in case, a Samaritan vehicle is stationed at Bundesplatz on the pavement on the Bundesgasse side.

The red zone

The Red Zone on the Bundesplatz for people with walking disabilities in wheelchairs and children – so that they don’t have to face tall people.

Mommy, I have to…

Sometimes it’s urgent… On the Bundesplatz itself, there are no WC facilities available. However, visitors to the Rendez-vous Bundesplatz can use the public toilets in the Bernese multi-storey car parks in the city center or the public toilets at Bern railway station before or after the event.
