The Department of Social Work offers a range of services, from studies and further training to services, applied research, and development.

The Bern University of Applied Sciences (BFH) is an application-oriented university founded in 1997. It consists of seven departments, as well as the Swiss Federal Institute of Sport Magglingen, which is affiliated with the BFH. The BFH is a leading, internationally recognised university in Switzerland for creative minds, those who show initiative, and people who think and act responsibly.

Arrival by foot or by public transport

The conference location can be reached by foot in around seven minutes from the “Welle von Bern” footbridge. The most direct way is not through the underground station concourse, but via the exit “Schanzenbrücke/Länggasse”: From the platform you arrive, head west over the “Welle von Bern” footpath and walk uphill on Schanzenstrasse. After around 300 m, you will reach Falkenplatz, which will branch right into Hallerstrasse a few steps further. Alternatively, you can travel to the conference on bus 20 from the train station towards Länggasse, getting off at the university stop.

Please make use of public transport. There are no long-term car parks nearby.

Hallerstrasse 10, 3012 Bern
BFH’s Hallerstrasse location is centrally situated in Bern’s lively and beautiful Länggasse district.
