  • Here you can find an absolute retreat area, although Berne is not a noisy city much less. Several tens of meters of Prairie overlooking the city and the snowy mountains. It is here where you launch the fireworks in early August on national day of Switzerland. The line of sight from the city is

  • Absolutely worth the trip. Our tram pass from the hotel included the fare to ride the funicular up the 900' to the top. Lovely to have an overview of the city and surrounds. 
  • 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
  • Beautiful park on top of Bern, has a nice view of the Alps. Best time to go there is in the summer! You can walk up but it is better if you take the Gurtenbahn.
  • Great views here (I assume - was cloudy when I went). Nice place to stroll around and listen to the birds chirp
  • Great view on Bern from the tower, or on the Alps. There's a restaurant, and the little train is also fun! A bunch of activities for the kids.
  • Nice hike up and a good place to spend a sunny sunday!
