Bern Sights

Gurten

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Updated 09/15/2012

Fodor's Review

Bern's very own hill rises 1,000 feet above the city and presents a delightful alternative to the city on clear afternoons. The view moves from the Jura Mountains in the west to the Alps in the east by way of Bern itself; multiple lawns, terraces, and restaurants allow for picnics, cafeteria service, or formal dining as you gaze. The bright red funicular to the top takes three minutes; head left to the east for a diagram labeling more than 200 distant peaks or right for

a 360-degree view from the top of the Gurtenturm. You can also walk up from Wabern.
