This delightful tour was created by two ISBerne alumni in 2020. It may take a moment for the video to load as there are many wonderful areas of our campus to view!

The International School of Berne (ISBerne) is proud to call our purpose-built campus home. The architecture of our school reflects our view of community: students and faculty learn in common and connected spaces, with respect for both the community’s diversity and our shared rules and values.

South of the Siloah site in Gümligen, our new campus opened in 2017 brings all of the school's age groups together under one roof – from the Early Learning Centre through to the final year of High School. A double gymnasium with an adjacent soccer pitch and plentiful outdoor spaces supplement what our school has to offer. 

Below you will get some impressions of what our campus is like, but the best way is to tour our school in person. Please pay us a visit!
