First Shopping Center by World-Renowned Architect Daniel Libeskind Opens

Westside Shopping and LeisureCentre, an exciting new development designed by famed architect Daniel Libeskind, opened its doors to the public on Wednesday, October 8. What many
years ago seemed a visionary, perhaps even utopian, concept for a new city district of Bern has finally become a reality. In addition to the 55 shops,10 restaurants and bars, hotel, multiplex cinema, fun bath with wellness and fitness center and senior residency, this mixed-use program radically reinvents the concept of shopping, entertainment and living. With its impressive location above the A1 highway, its direct connection to the tram
and the BERNMOBIL transport network, Westside is a meeting place for the whole greater region of Bern and provides a striking gateway to the city.
