Not far from Bern you can find Gurten Hill (858 m.a.s.l.), where we have been to four times during our living here in Switzerland. It was twice in the spring (but within different weather conditions), once in the summer and once in the autumn. But we have always spent here pleasant time because the park on the top of the hill is really an ideal place to enjoy time with your kids, family, and friends.
Gurten resembles me a bit of Petřín hill in Prague. At least you can get there by the same type of cable car and you can find the lookout tower on its peak, from which you can overview the city below. At this point, the similarity ends – except for you could see the Alpes from Petřín 🙂
Right next to the playground you can find marbles – you can endlessly turn the crank and move multicolored balls on the metal construction, chasing them through obstacles and watch where they wander and where they drop out.
Twelve colorful toy cars are ready for children from three years on a special racing track. For 1 francs can those, who have to wait for driving a real car a few more years, enjoy several minutes of the ride.
|Eiger, Jungfrau & Monch|
In summer, respectively. since late May should be opened another of the attractions – 500 m long bobsled. Learn on the website: http://www.gurtenpark.ch/ what is held at the Gurten (concerts, festivals, shows …)
