  • Value because of the great view again and again is a journey. The breakfast in the restaurant can be no wish left and it's also quite good. My family and I always very happy to visit the straps to a delicious breakfast. Price is right and atmosphere also.

  • An experience and above all because of its views we traveled on the Gurten - the view (especially at night) highly recommended. Restaurant could not points - price/performance is not wrong here.

  • Always worth a trip. If you're lucky, you get stunning views of monk in the Bernese Oberland, Eiger and Jungfrau. The Gurten is but a visit worth. The Migros restoration is good, we found there's always something delicious. For small children, there are great ways to play.

  • 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.
