The equivalent of a North American style national park, Gurten boasts splendid views of the mountains and city with a host of well-maintained trails for biking, walking (and even sledding!). A quick and easy trip from the Old City, this is a worthwhile stop while in Bern.

Use your free travel pass you receive when you stay in an official accommodation and travel up to the Gurten. Do a round walk, enjoy the view and charge up your energy inside or outside the beautiful Migros self-service restaurant.

It is a nice hill that gives a view for entire Bern city. It is well maintained, has a good restaurant as well, a view tower that allows you to see Alps in the good weather conditions. There is a cable car that allows to get to Gurten quickly. There are plenty of kids attractions and open land to play.... More

We go here for several times, and it's always perfect. They have soooo many play areas for baby, toddler, and for us too. They have instagram-able areas too, electric cars, resto, free picnic area for grill time, etc. Super recommended place, for any season!

Great outdoor location for families with young kids, couples or friends. Whether admiring the views, having some fine food or just exercising with your mountain bike or simply running.

Absolutely worth the trip. Our tram pass from the hotel included the fare to ride the funicular up the 900' to the top. Lovely to have an overview of the city and surrounds.

We toured the small town of Gurten and found it interesting. We were using Rick Steve's guide book and that helped us find some of the more unique sites. The view of the lake and the roof tops and chimneys are wonderful. We toured this old town in about an hour.

Perfect in good weather for green space, and views of the city to one side, and the mountains to the other. Lots of recreational opportunities -- we walked, barbecued and would have spent a long time at the play area if we'd had more time!

Came up here for a great hike, lookout and picnic. It also has one of the coolest childrens attractions that I have ever seen; a Rune Goldberg like device that moves coloured balls around a series of obstacles.
