Took a short train ride to the top and had a lovely view of Bern. Also had lunch at the cafe which was lovely, albeit slightly expensive but this was expected. Only slight negative issue is that the staff running the train were not the most pleasant.

We took the funicular up to the top of Gurten and walked around the top of the hill. The view is very nice and there are lots of benches to sit down and enjoy it from. We spent a couple of hours here before returning to central Bern.

The Train ride, ( 4 minutes of it) is the most interesting part....the view fantastic. Cultural Input?.. absolute null! Of course, there is a Restaurant, and childrens ride`s..the rest....green grass and no traffic.

Bought bread, cheese and fruit from the Saturday farmers market in Old Town and took it up to Gurten. So enjoyable and fantastic views. A must do on anyone's list. Great for young children.

This is a trip you have to make if you are in Bern, especially in summer when the city center is so hot. You will have the best view on the city and will enjoy some fresh air as well. You reach there via a small funicular. Once on top, you will find a large and great green park with... More

Gurten is Bern's very own mountain and is less known to tourists compared to Jungfrau or Pilatus. The area is very family-friendly. There is a playground space for children to have fun; you can pack a picnic box and enjoy outdoor dining or go hiking as a family during Summer. If you aren't afraid of heights, head up to the...

The Gurten park offers a good day out from the centre of Bern, only about 20 minutes away by tram. There are walking trails, a viewing tower to climb and other activities for children. The restaurants have great views of the city.

Summer or Winter, located outside the edge of Bern is a great Funicular (thats right! angled train) Go to the top and if it's summer hike and sit in the grass meadows with views of the alps and city. If it's winter throw snow balls and sit in the cafe sipping a hot chocolate or adult beverage. Great for kids... More

We were there with our daughter and friends. Is a nice place, but only if you have children. You can spend an afternoon playing there and running around. If the weather is good is even better. Parking can be very difficult to get in summer days. So if you can go there with public transportation.
