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.


The small railway, lovingly maintained by enthusiasts, crosses hills and tunnels and transports both young and old throughout the park. Various trains, including two steam locomotives, run regularly.

        Grünenfelder's ball machine

        Stefan Grünenfelder’s legendary ball circuit is a kind of oversized Tinguely machine, where levers, pivots and cranks are operated. The countless stretches and mechanisms will excite both large and small. With more than 300 meters of track, you will need more than an hour if you want to do the whole circuit. As long as temperatures do not drop below zero degrees, the ball circuit also works in winter.
