You have a magnificent view to the Alps! We like to go there in autum and make a BBQ. And it's great for small kids too: There is a playground and a great little steam train. You can walk up/down or take the cable car.

We recently visited with our 2-year old daughter. The attractions include, outdoor water play area, plenty of green areas for picnics, model train rides, restaurant, playground and more. This is a great hidden gem in Bern. Payment is required to go up in the funicular and parking, but overall this is worth it for the afternoon or day spent up... More

Make the most of your stay in Bern by taking the Wabern tram to Gurtenbahn stop. From here it is a short but slightly uphill walk to the funicular car. The views from the funicular and when you reach the top are spectacular looking over Bern and across to the Alps. A hotel and restaurant are situated at the summit.... More

Took a bus from centre of Bern to the funicular station. You need to buy a ticket to ride the funicular train up to the top but it was free for Swiss Travel Pass holders. Once up there you were rewarded with great views of Bern and walking trails plus many fund activities for children - eg. train rides, wading... More

Perfect day outing for a sunny day. It is possible to take the cable car up but one can also hike (30 min). If you are in an average physical shape, the hike is more enjoyable. The starting point is the tram stop of Wabern which can be reached on tram number 9 from the central train station. From the... More

Breath-taking scenery is not new to tourists who travel to Switzerland in general and Bern in particular. Nothing compares to Gurten in this city: a fascinating scenery on dozen of Swiss alps, grilling places, perfect playground for kids makes it a must-see location for anyone interested in nature.

Fenicular railway, mountain biking, amazing child's playground, decent restaurant views over Bern on one side and an entire vista of the Swiss Alps on the other. A Seriously good family day out - there's a reason is a favourite with locals and tourists alike !
