Absolute fun for kids and families. Very well maintained. Funicular ride will take you to the top where all fun awaits. Huge park with lots of options for kids to play with. The toy train ride (chargeable) will take you around the park. The slides, climb-ons and some kind of ball maze - all of them keep the kids busy. The tall tower at one side gives a breathtaking view of the whole city. One side of this spot is left untouched where people can sit and unwind.
Bonuses- Restaurant and clean toilets. An ice cream shop
Tips : Save some coins as your kids will definitely want to try out the battery operated car rides multiple times.

You must absolutely go here while in Bern. The view was one of the best in all of Switzerland. We sat with about 20 other people in silence and awe of the fairy tale like picturesque view. Absolutely stunning!!! Don’t miss it!!!

If the weather is clear, visit this place if you're in Bern. It takes about 20 minutes from the old town by bus, then you take a tram to climb the hill. Once you're there, you can enjoy many wonderful views, from the city of Bern, the Alps, and you can also do a little trail walk to see "Sound of Music"-like views.

You can also do a picnic here. Or, if you have children, they have this little play-ground and a park. Even if you're not a local, you'll find the trip worthwhile.

This is the Bern mountain. Then 15 minutes with street car from the center of Bern. Great view of the Swiss Alps and around. Fantastic place for children too. Nice Restaurants (1 is self service, good prices.) some times different shows and concerts. There is also a bike trail or you just hike a bit. Easy trail. Great place to go out of the city and very close at the same time.

We went to Gurten last month expecting tobogganing or sledging to be open, but it was closed. Check the timings always before you decide for such activities esp with changing climate. For little kids, it's a fun day out. You have an eat-in option in the hotel as well or picnic in park with kids. Spacious for jogs or running, and good to go for wilderness treks. But I would suggest all this if you are a local or haven't travelled too much already to reach Gurten. It's certainly not an overwhelming experience but a chilled day-out.

Gurten is Bern's 'Hausberg' and easy to get to either by cablecar from Wabern or by manpower. You can come here for a walk (about an hour) or cycle up here any time of the year. The park is lovely. Playgrounds for kids, even walking paths for the grandparents, a restaurant, café and even a beautiful luxury hotel in case you want to enjoy the spectacular view over Bern and towards the alps for longer.
This is a perfect spot for a picnic, BBQ or beer with friends.

In a few minutes (12minutes from Center by tram) you can reach the cable car. And 5min later you find yourself on a Little hill. Where you have a amazing view over the City, the alps and the landscape. You can easy walk down (around 40 min). On Sunday crowded with People. especialy the two Restaurants.

Gurten is around 10 min by train of tram from the central station of Bern. You can then either take the Gurten Bahn or hike to the top (hiking takes 30-45 min)... from the top, you get a nice view in all directions if the weather allows it... and there are quite a few hiking routes there, and there is a nice restaurant GURTNERS...

The funicular to the top is the quickest way, but hiking only took about 50 minutes. We visited during autumn but in winter there is sledding and small ski lifts.

There is an area of summer sled for children, akin to bobsleigh but without the ice. The slope is not too steep so it is perfectly secure and great fun for all ages, including adults.

There is also a huge mechanical circuit for balls, where children have to guide their ball through the maze with their actions. Doing it entirely can easily take one or two hours, at least on the first time.

There is also a huge wood castle for children to play in, along with a vegetable garden. And many other attractions.
