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.

Good place to relax and soak in the view of Bern, not to mention cool air and plenty of green open spaces for a picnic

Having seen most of the old city we asked a tour guide whether there was any other interesting places to visit and Gurten was recommended. We took the No 9 tram (to Wabern) getting off at Gurtenbahn, then getting the funicular up to the top of Gurten hill (mountain?). At the top there is a beautiful grassed open space with... More

There's lots to do, especially for children, atop the Gurten, but the main attraction for us is a large open grass space and facility to BBQ. Bern looks so small from up there, so best to enjoy the little bit of nature so close to the city centre.

Gurten is the place to go, while visiting the city. Ask for activities at the tourist board at the train station. You can go up with a train or walk up to the top. There is a big Migros Self Service Restaurant and a Restaurant in a wonderful Belle Epoque Mansion. You will get a great view over the city,... More

It is a perfect place for an outdoor activities. You can cycle, jogging, walk there. You can have a great picnic there when is a nice and sunny day. Take a cog railway up to the hill. It is a 5 minutes ride. There is a beautiful panorama up there. Great for families with kids. Highly recommend it.

Gurten is one of the best places to visit in Bern. Long stretches of manicured grass. Superb view of the frozen Alps. Can spend full day here without getting bored. Go up via a cog wheel train
