A very nice place in Bern to be able to enjoy a lovely walk with great views. If you bring kids with you it is also an amazing option.

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.
