  • Large lawn, great views, super playground for children! If you have a day ticket for the transport, the ride is up on the straps included! Costs 10CHF else about up & down.

  • Offers something for everyone at all times of the year. Certainly the most beautiful in the summer, because where all attractions are open. It's worth to go on the belts alone the ride with the cable car (funicular). Top restaurants are various attractions for children, including a mini railway, great views of Bern, and from the wooden observation tower, a great all-round visibility to the Alps.
