Rose Garden (Rosengarten), Bern

(4.6/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • Excellent views on the old town of Bern enjoy, enjoying a Cafe Creme and take a sunbathe on the lawn. Or just look for a picnic with the kids in the rose garden. The large playground offers kids game, fun and excitement for hours.

  • Wonderful view over the old town of bern, plenty of space to sit and enjoy the view, the parking however is not available, you should find a place around it
  • It was pretty cold and windy when we visited this place in November. We enjoying the spectacular view of Bern with an amazing sunset!!!
  • Amazing spot at sunset with a beautiful view of the city. Very romantic if you are looking for nice stop. Not so quiet on the weekends though the location can become busy
  • You've got a lovely view from there over the old town of Bern. And they serve moldwine in the winter at a little stall next to the restaurant.
  • Very nice garden with an impressive fountain, stone monuments and a layout like for a royal castle. There are many different rose species, each labelled with it's name. There children's playground is great; it's one of the largest and most interesting in Bern. There are lawns for people to spend sunny days or play games.
