The city of Bern with 141,000 inhabitants is situated in the north-western part of Switzerland surrounded by a beautiful landscape with rivers, valleys and mountains. The old city is located on a peninsula, which on three sides is lined by the Aare river. Bern is dated back to the gallic-roman period. The name of the city has its root in the 12th century and is disputed to refer either to a legendary figure, Dietrich von Bern, or to a bear; a dark brown male bear is shown on the coat-of-arms of the city.
Bern in 1983 was nominated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The old city is an urban gem. Bern is a modern city as well with a range of sights, attractions and cultural institutions. The University with 13,000 students makes Bern a lively place. The university hospital, Inselspital Bern, where the congress is organized, is the leading cantonal hospital with medical education and active research.
