Having years ago seen the Bears of Bern in their original pit. This new enclosure on the side of the river was wonderful. There is space for the bears to wander without looking pitiful. Trees to climb , places to hide from the public. It is now a pleasure to see these symbols of Bern. Walking down the arcades or take a tram down the hill. Well worth a visit.

Great set up for the bears. Shame it was winter & the bears didn't come out (can't blame them, it was snowing).

From the top of the Bear Park near the old Bear Pits, I had a good view of 2 of the Brown Bears. The big Brown Bear was digging some hole and the smaller bear would walk around the parameter and then look on at the larger Brown Bear digging the hole. This park is much better than last time I visited Bern which had the old bear pit which was cruel in my opinion.

The attraction is free, but could only see 4 bears and it is quite far away! No real clear view of the bears. It was ok for a one time visit.
The restuarant near the bear park was a better choice where they brewed their own beer and it was quite good!

This could be a nice place, but unfortunately in the middle of winter, all bears are hibernating. Better to save it for another time of the year!
