Just a 10 minute tramdrive and a 7 minute ride by cablecar away from the center of the city you ll find a calm spot to stroll around and relax. Even the culinary art will not be missed. From a self arranged bbq to a tete-à-tete in a high quality restaurant you ll find all you deserve

I live in Bern since a few years and I've been there quite a number of times. You can walk up or take a tram...both cases you enjoy a nice view of the whole city and sorrounding alps. However Id prefer the view and the bar at Rosengarten (another smaller hill). Gurten is much better for families with small children... More

This is one of the must see places around Bern! Excellent for kids, for those who like to hike, or for picnics in general. You go up by a monorail (free if you have a Bern day pass) or you can bike up. You can choose to walk as well. Once you reach the top, there is a nice park... More

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

If you have to pay it's 10,5 return ticket for adults and under 6 is free. Some moderation for older kids, but both ours is under so I don't remember the... 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
