We went to Gurten as it was included in the Bern travel pass. Even though it was lovely to be in the mountain air the attraction is definitely suited for young families. It was more of an adventure park with kids games everywhere. Toddlers on...More

Take the bus from near the train station in Bern, and you can easily reach Gurten. From where the bus drops you off, it is an easy walk to the Gurtenbahn, with it's fabulous views and tower to climb, with an amazing view of Bern.

Tram ride free with hotel transit pass. After checking out city view, walk down path to other side of hill to check out view of Alps in distance. Fun play structures for kids.
