  • The Gurten Park is located above Bern with a beautiful view over the city. The Bern's local mountain is easily accessible by a funicular railway.

  • The Bernese mountain belts is always worth a trip. Are Talststion walked on the trail up by the. Since it has recently snowed and stormed in front of it, the way was partially something challenging. There is however the possibility to walk the trail on a paved road. But this is in terms of kilometres a lot longer but is in turn with prams etc.. Children bikes certainly do, as too steep! For our way Variant (1 senior, 2 adults and 1 7-year) took us quite exactly 90 minutes for the "rise". To enjoy weather like today a dream to this and the nature. Once at the top we have allowed a snack us in the self service restaurant. Because of the large crowd, we had to give us happy with a table on the terrace but is ok for a such Sunday. The large lawn is occupied at the moment with a Kinderskilft and is also the possibility to the sledging. Here, the snow was already almost back to close it. We opted for the return path for the straps commuter (funicular). Again an experience for young and old. With wonderful views of the city of Bern.
