In 2007 Steve von Bergen moved from FC Zurich to Hertha BSC Berlin. After his first training session he told the press "it is great to play in the Bundesliga, a dream has come true."

Howevver, since that move, in the last three years he never found his top form, becoming quite inconsistent. Sometimes he displayed great performance but on other days he was error-prone. Von Bergen is a versatile player, who can adapts to any position in the back-line.
Also a two-footed player with good tactical understanding. In the national team he has shown his worth. Coach Ottmar Hitzfeld has selected him for the World Cup in South Africa, despite his previously mentioned troubles at club level. Since his first match for Switzerland in 2006, he's played another eight matches at international level.
