About Bear Park, Bern

In Swiss vernacular, Bern is pronounced as “Barn”, which translates to bear. An obvious association, since the bear is featured on Switzerland’s coat of arms and is treated as the country’s national animal. Stories say that the city was named after animal that was slayed in the surrounding forest area.

The love for bears becomes apparent in this park. Housing live bears in 1513, the Bear Park is a well-loved and rather popular place. The beautiful park built on the sloped alongside the Aare River, where the bears can play, take a swim, climb trees, adds to ambience of the park. The bears also have their own caves, should they desire privacy! If there’s ever a crash course you need on bears, the Bear Park is where you should be headed to.

  • It was,a,surprise to find that Einstein lived and visited here. He even nicknamed one of his bear because his son loved visiting here so much. It is a pretty site on the side of the river. P.S., don't miss guys,surfing from the bridge using a long bungee. It is amazing!

  • Historic and touristic place. The bear are oftenly not present during winter. They are probably hibernating during this period. It is worth to have a walk around there only for the scenery on the river. Local people are getting near from there to get some sun during the winter as well.

  • 5 stars only for the enclosure and on-site historic information, as during winter all 3 bears are in hibernation. Should be great to visit during summer ;) (and if you make it here, you should also climb a little more on the hill, to visit the small Bern Zoo).

  • There are still bears is Bern (name of the city is linked to it). Hopefully, they have got a new and big parc close to the river, in which then can spend good time. Definitely a place to pass by, even more if you have children ;)

  • Not see real bear on the visit. I don't know if I can see them in the summer. Was disappointed when there was no one bear can be seen.
