A public park since 1913, this site served as a cemetery in the 19th century. Today, the manicured lawns and formal gardens draw both visiting tourists and picnicking locals. In addition to roses, the neat flowerbeds display 30 different types of rhododendrons and 200 kinds of irises. Take a stroll along the footpaths to see the rose varieties named after Ingrid Bergman, Maria Callas, Christopher Columbus, and Cleopatra. Walk here from the Old Town, or take the public bus from the city's main train station. Start your trip to Bern by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • We took the tram up to the park. Saw lots of children playing on nice park equipment. There was a free concert going on, dancing, and picnicking. The views back toward old town are amazing!

  • Great view overlooking Bern. The roses were flowering in June - it was lovely. There's a cafe with a panoramic view and a small bookshop. Definitely worth a hike up the hill if you are visiting Bern.

  • Located a short walk (and a slight climb) away from Bern's old town, the Rose Garden is a tranquil park that is home to beautiful roses, trees and fountain. We visited here in summer, and if you enjoy relaxing strolls in the park, then you would like it here. Aside from the roses, the park also offers a panoramic view of the city and the river, which you can take may pretty photos of. There's also a very nice restaurant here if you fancy a bite or drink.
  • I think this park is one of the best parks in Bern with the best view of the Old Town and sunset. Beautiful flowers, roses and shrubs. During my 2 weeks in Bern, I went to this garden 4 or 5 times, it was always active and full of people, especially on the weekend. I highly recommend to visit this place. I uploaded some photos that I took there
  • The park itself is neat, but there weren't that many flowers in the park. The main selling point of the park is it's magnificent view of the city. It has a beautiful photo spot where you can just sit and enjoy the view.
  • Fabulous park and gardens with a great view across Bern city centre. Good play park for young children and a cafe. Definitely recommended. Catch a 10 bus from the main station towards Ostermundigen - 6 stops and you're there.
  • High above the hillocks overlooking the city of Bern is this beautiful garden setting. You just have to take the long and interesting old town road from the central station and that road will take you to this winding hillock, you just have to cross the gentle river Aare river. You can stroll, you can have coffee, you can just gaze at the city from above. Go there in the early morning or during the dusk. You will thank me and will love Bern even more.
