We’ve heard that bear enclosure has been expanded and went to visit the bears. It was a very sad experience. Indeed, there is more space available to the animals now but it does not change the fact that they are caged and look extremely unhappy....More

The Bern bears were always a treat to see. Overall the space was quite large for the bears to roam and we enjoyed stopping by and seeing them on multiple days. They were often quite active and my daughter loved watching them.

This was a great surprise to see at a public park some real bear walking around, of course they are in a protected area but inside the city park

The bears were active even on the super hot day we were there. One bear took a swim in their little pool attached to the river. It was fun watching the bears roaming around their compound, surrounded by the beautiful, ancient walls of the city.

We were just walking through the city and found this park. Its interesting how much historic this town is and how bears are part of it. This park has 4 bears in it and a nice park view with the town in the background.

Interesting to learn how bears were part of the history of Bern.  The new enclosure is obviously much more natural than the old bear pits/cages, but still found it a bit weird to have bears locked up in the city centre.    Didn’t see any...More

Visited here on the advice of two locals. The bears are stunning creatures and seem to be very well cared for in a reasonably large area. It is very popular and you do get some great views but you are looking at wild animals that...More

We found the fact that there were real live bears living naturally in a large city fascinating. The very large enclosure was an excellent home for the family of bears,who seemed to be healthy and content. The public could get very close to the bears....More
