If you want to get rid of the city hustle, go up gurten hill. You can choose funicular, but if you feel fit,i recomend to walk it up. From there you can see a spectacular view over Bern, and over the Bernasie Alps. The view is magnificent and full of stamina gaver.

We had a nice trip up in the tram and enjoyed some lunch at the top. Unfortunately the day was too hazy to see much from the top and we ended up having a better view from the rosengarten! This would be best for kids I think, with activities etc up the top.

nothing particular : it's a buffet, serving season rösti, salad and dessert. Nothing tremedous, but not disgusting for the price

Gurten park is a fantastic place for outdoor activities near the city center. The furnicular going up the park was a thrill for the kids. Once you are up there in the park, you are greeted by fantastic views of Bern. There are many fun activities for kids and kids at heart. The mini train was a hit for the... More

The view of bern is just gorgeous. There are plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the view. The ride up is free with a swiss pass. It was interesting to see bikers ride the funicular up to ride their bikes down.

One of the must-see spots in Bern if you want to take in a good view - On a clear day you have a great view of the Alps and the Juras. Nice, easy walking up top, so great for anyone with limited mobility as well.

The Gurten park is really close to the city and offers excellent views of it and the mountains. There is a really big green field with farms and cows. You actually won't believe you're in a capital city! I took the train up and descended walking through the trail. Very recommended!

On a rainy day it was still nice to do! I loved the train ride up the mountain, had a moment to see those people on mountain bikes go down the hill. Up the hill there was a tower to go up on (no elevator, just stairs!) and you then had a 360 degree view over the Bern area which... More

We came to Gurten on a very sunny day, so it provided great 360 view to the surrouding Bern area. There were many families that came up to enjoy the park. We did not see any mobs of tour groups, so this must not be a popular attraction with tours - which worked out wonderful for us! Lots of walking... More
