  • Details about the Travel light system are laid down in the travel guidelines of the University of Bern: Travel guidelines (PDF in German)
  • Below you will find a list of the most frequently used European travel connections with travel time from Bern per destination and means of transport (train or plane) with the corresponding traffic light categories: Traffic light system: list of destinations.
