  • The Berne home hill is the perfect place to go with your children. While the adults enjoy the great view over the town of Bern, the children have plenty of possibilities to play on the huge playground.
  • Great place to go to chill out, see bern from above, barbeque, play frisbee, jog, or take family with children.
  • nice escape from the city almost within the city itself. nice to have a walk in the green. might be crowded when the weather is good.
  • Beautiful and expansive park overlooking Bern with views of the Alps as well. Nice hike and good playground equipment for kids as well as a view tower that's free of charge. Rolling hills give the park a picturesque experience
  • Der Gurten hat einen abwechslungsreichen Spielplatz und eine meistens praktisch leere Rasenfläche mit riesigen Ausmaßen.
