Gurten - a children's paradise
Fun on Bern's balcony
Only a few minutes from Bern city centre, the Gurten offers many attractions, most of which are free. In summer, the water games shine through their turquoise water. The Gschtelasch, a large wooden construction with nets, a climbing tunnel and a slide, allows to jump for hours. At the playground there is also the legendary Stefan Grünenfelder ball circuit, a kind of oversized Tinguely machine. The miniature train will make you feel like a railroad man and the summer toboggan run will guarantee thrills. These are just a few examples of the many attractions that make the Gurten a true paradise for children.
