Rose Garden (Rosengarten), Bern

(4.5/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
To see and learn about hundreds of different rose varieties in a tranquil setting, head to Rose Garden (Rosengarten), situated on a hilltop overlooking the capital city's medieval Old Town. 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. Our Bern trip builder makes visiting Rose Garden (Rosengarten) and other Bern attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This is a bit of a walk but well worth it and the views of Bern and gorgeous. We visited in winter so there were no roses out but the view was just great. Nice little cafe with good coffee at the top. 
  • The rose garden offers a beautiful view over the old part of the city of Berne. The Berneese Alps are visible if the weather is fine. 
  • The view of the old town is very nice. You can walk from the bear fruits in the rose garden (approx. 15 minutes) or you can take the bus. In winter and in summer the view is very nice. In the summer you can see still different roses, and it is a cozy Park to the rest.
