Grosser Muristalden 6, 3006 Bern, Switzerland
The Bern BearPark is right in the middle of the city. The mascot animal of the city has a long tradition. Bern has kept its own brown bears since the 16th century. In 2009, the park was modernized and now provides a comfortable home for the mama bear Björk and her two cubs Finn and Ursina. Not far from the park is the “Dälhölzli” zoo with around 200 different animal species. A large part of the facility is located directly on the banks of the Aaren River and can be visited freely.

Paul Klee Zentrum, Monument im Fruchtland, Bern, Switzerland
PAUL KLEE CENTER
The iconic building was built in 2005 by Italian star architect Renzo Piano. The undulating steel and glass construction blends with the surrounding landscape and is worth a visit in itself. In addition to the world’s most important Klee collection, you’ll find temporary exhibitions, guided tours and events such as concerts, theater and readings, as well as workshops at the Creaviva Children’s Museum.
Indoor and outdoor pools, Schachenweg, Lützelflüh, Bern, Switzerland
Bern Outdoor Pools
A summer in Bern also means cooling off in the outdoor pools. Not far from Evi’s Home is the Wylerbad, which is a great fit for families. Experienced swimmers can dare a jump into the Aare. Here we especially recommend the Marzilibad, from where you can enjoy a super view of the Bundeshaus. Please note that swimming in the Aare is at your own risk. The SLRG and the city of Bern provide (life) important advice for all who are in and around the Aare.
