    There is a lot to see on a city tour in Bern. Among other things the bear pit.

    At the time of the hike the bears are still hibernating. You can see the sleeping bears over video though.

    The old town and the Bern Castle are easy to explore on foot, even if the climb is demanding. From the castle then through the main street with the old houses in the direction of the Rhine bridge to Bärengehege is just worth seeing

    Bärenpark Bern (BärenPark Bern) is kept as a brown bear. It is located on the opposite bank of the river Aare, at the Nydeggbrücke. The Bärengraben is part of the Bernese zoo Dählhölzli.

    Bear Park Bern

    Bärenpark Bern is an animal enclosure opened in 2009
    Bern and replaces the old bear pit for keeping the animals. The brown bear facility is located on the bank of the Aare opposite the old town and is part of the Bernese zoo Dählhölzli, which is also located on the Aare River about two kilometers to the southwest. The Bear Park and the old Bear Pit are one of the most famous sights in Berne. The bear is the heraldic animal of the city and the canton of Bern.
    The two old bear trenches are used differently today. The big ditch continues to be part of the bear complex. The bears are kept in the ditch for a short time when the large plant is cleaned or food is distributed there. The little ditch is open to the public.

    If you are lucky you can see the bears running around between the trees and bushes.

    The symbol of the city of Bern. The bears have only been in one of the more animal-friendly green spaces right next door for a few years.
    When the Aare floods and overflows its banks, the bears are briefly relocated to the bear pit.
    Caution! The bear pit is very touristy in the season.
