Just a short walk from the old town to the "funicular" to Gurten.
From Gurten you'll have a great view over Bern.
Gurten is an ideal starting point for exploring the green hills surrounding Bern.

The locals have used this spot for a long time for family BBQ, walks or the Gurten Festival in Summer.

Great if you want have view over Bern and to the Berner Oberland and mountains.

Easy funicular trip up to Gurten. Bring your PicNic or there is a self serve restaurant that
won't break the bank.

It's THE place to go when you don't know what to do or where to go. Never a dull moment up there, for families, singles or couples.

This is a beautiful area for everyone. For sitting and relaxing, admiring the view (both towards Bern and towards to Alps), hiking, bicycle riding, play things for children, ski slopes for little ones in winter. One of my favourite places, have been there in summer and winter and both wonderful experiences. Remember to climb the tower for an even better view. No fee. Good meals at the restaurant. Easy to get there by tram 9 from outside train station and then funicular up the hill. Well worth a visit.

Take your camera with you, as this is the best view in Bern. There is something for everyone at the Gurten, you can have a gentle stroll, hike, watch the mountain biker trials, go to the Gurten festival in July (around 90chf per night) theres a fantastic play area for children and a little railway which costs a couple of chf.
If your not scared of heights there is also a viewing tower....for the brave!
Well worth a visit!
