We went here with my Aunt who went to school in Bern and she was able to share some of the history of this town with us. I am happy to see the conditions of the bear habitat so... read more

The Barenpark can be quite simply and a normal bear park, but its proximity with the city and the Aar river turn it in a must visit place! The bears are very calm and very lovely! After visit them you can refresh yourself with the feet in the clean and fresh waters of the Aar! Loved it!

We went there in December but could not see bears as they were hibernating. Still there were a lot of tourists there looking at the empty bear park trying to get a glimpse of bears without success. The place is nicely done by the river. Suggest go there when bears are awake.

We visited on a rainy December day so I think the Bears must have been inside. We did not see one little fella outside.

We were a little disappointed that the Bears didn't show up. I can only infer that they were either sleeping or hibernating. Took Bus no. 12 from the city centre and a short walk to get here. Nevertheless, it's a nice surrounding with a good view.

We went there on an afternoon. Once you exit the station, take a left and move for a couple of miles to reach the place. En route we found many shops (Sunday market and routine shops). Just before the destination there is a small but beautiful bridge. We saw a bear in the park. Spend some time near the flowing... More

Friendly staff. Great view. The bears are mainly sleeping, but they are real bears, dwelling in beautiful surroundings. Try the pork-sausage, sold within the premises, which is wonderful. Another plus to the Swiss capital!!!!

I was bornd in Switzerland and Bern is a much much underestimated city. Much nicer then Zurich and easy to get around even if it rains. The former Coal passement in the houses are now unique shops. Just love Bern. Check out the days when they have farmers markets in front of the Capital. And in November is Onion Market... More

Beautiful park in an evocative place in the city. You can see the bear live and on-screen video. We will be back.
