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.

  • There is a beautiful view of the city, because the garden is well on top. The roses are fragrant and each with your own feature. A great exercise p smell trained. A place to sit, enjoy and watch time pass in peace. Super recommend.

  • I saw it in September and, fortunately, there were still many roses and other flowers. Is a nice Park, pleasant, orderly, frequented by locals and with a magnificent view from the top of Bern. I can imagine the beauty in late spring.
