Went here using my Libero ticket (area ticket valid for certain zones in the Bern area). Lovely cable car up the hill and then beautiful walks with stunning views across Bern and over to the Matterhorn. Great play and activity area for kids to have fun in. Lovely cafe/restaurant as well.
Great day out for family

Gurten is really nice to go to to get some amazing views of Bern and the Alps. You can climb the tower for even more incredible views, and it's only a short tram drive from the city centre. However, other than the views, there's not much to do.

The cogwheel ride is enjoyable. From the top of this hill, you can see Bern city and the Alps. Breathtaking views!

During my visit to Bern, I have spared a day based on Internet reviews of things to do in Bern to visit Gurten, It was very good choice, the day was just perfect, the kids really enjoyed the atmosphere, and we enjoyed the spectacular views.
the play ground there was good, and the walking on different trails inside the Gurten was really nice.
the place located on high hell above Bern is ideal to see amazing view of Bern, we were lucky that the sky was very clear that day and the weather was sunny.
the restaurant provides very nice dinning experience, and there was interesting kidz show taking place on that day that our daughter enjoyed much.
I really recommend Gurten as a must see for any Bern visitor, specially families with kids.
