“Good set up (no bears though)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Great set up for the bears. Shame it was winter & the bears didn't come out (can't blame them, it was snowing).

“Had a good view of 2 Brown Bears”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

From the top of the Bear Park near the old Bear Pits, I had a good view of 2 of the Brown Bears. The big Brown Bear was digging some hole and the smaller bear would walk around the parameter and then look on at the larger Brown Bear digging the hole. This park is much better than last time I visited Bern which had the old bear pit which was cruel in my opinion.

“Only see 4 bears”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The attraction is free, but could only see 4 bears and it is quite far away! No real clear view of the bears. It was ok for a one time visit.
The restuarant near the bear park was a better choice where they brewed their own beer and it was quite good!

“Sleeping bears”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This could be a nice place, but unfortunately in the middle of winter, all bears are hibernating. Better to save it for another time of the year!
