A public park since 1913, this site served as a cemetery in the 19th century. Today, the manicured lawns and formal gardens draw both visiting tourists and picnicking locals. In addition to roses, the neat flowerbeds display 30 different types of rhododendrons and 200 kinds of irises. Take a stroll along the footpaths to see the rose varieties named after Ingrid Bergman, Maria Callas, Christopher Columbus, and Cleopatra. Walk here from the Old Town, or take the public bus from the city's main train station. Start your trip to Bern by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • Scenic, peaceful and a great view of the city from here.
  • Best place in town to get a nice view of the old city. You can easily walk there from all points. A restaurant is also available to have a beer or lunch. Public transport is also available in case you don’t want to walk up. Afterwards you can go visit the Bears at Bärengraben. Also good for a pick nick, bring your own wine or beers to enjoy the view or a nice sunset.
