Welcome to our city's recently enhanced website. Here, you will find information on Berne's elected officials, boards and city services, as well as many area links.

Settled in 1852 by a small group of devout Swiss Mennonites, Berne is located in the heart of Adams County, home to a vibrant and extensive Amish community. Berne has the largest outdoor museum in northern Indiana in Swiss Heritage Village, the newly constructed, massive, Berne Clock Tower and Muensterberg Plaza, our annual Swiss Days Festival Celebration, and many other local and area attractions.

Conveniently located near several major roadways, Berne is only 35 miles south of Fort Wayne, and 90 miles north of Indianapolis. In today's hectic world, Berne has retained the charm and ambiance of small town Americana while embracing our Swiss roots.
We invite you to visit Berne and discover for yourself why Bloomberg Business Week 2011 rated Berne the second best community in Indiana in which to live and raise a family.
