“Great place for a family day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

I visited Gurtenpark with a couple of friends, and totally loved it. If you have children you can't miss this attraction, plenty of attractions for the little ones.
You can climb a few stairs to go up in a tower that gives you a complete and outstanding view of Bern. There's a hotel too, if you want to spend the night there.
No pollution there, it's forbidden to take any motor vehicle there, you have to catch a electric train, wich is quite cheap, or you just can walk, it's cool if you enjoy a good nature walk., i did both ways and i enjoyed it.
If you are going to Bern, this is a place you can't miss.

“Good place to go to”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

The location and the views are great. But the food is just average. It is still worth going there.

“Nice place to take children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

I've been here many times on my trips to Switzerland. Not a tourist trap, a genuinely lovely park used by the residents of Bern. Playgrounds and a little train ride and lots of open areas for picnicing at the top.

“Dodge sledgers on the way up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

This makes a bracing walk up (dodge the sledgers) or you can use the funicular railway. It is walkable from the city centre but you can get the tram. There are good views from the top and make sure you climb the tower even if it is -20 degrees C!
