  • My favourite place near Bern! Amazing views ❤️
  • Nice view and a lot of walking. Mini train for kids to ride. Full scale restaurant. Tower with 360 view. $11 cable car to go up and down or free to walk.
  • Peaceful
  • A very nice place with good entertainment for kids
  • Music Festival on the day i went, so long queue for funicular and limited access at the top without the wristband. Even so, thoroughly enjoyed the trip up and the walk at the top. The view platform is a great touch, though a little nerve wreaking if you are anxious with heights,
