The legend of Bern, its name, and the resident bears is both unusual and fascinating. The only objection I have is that the space available to the bears is rather small, considering 3 of them must live together. The construction of the park in addition to the traditional "pit" has no doubt improved this beyond measure, but in my view it could still be bigger.

There were two bears that were out grazing in the grass. It looked like a male and a female. It was enjoyable watching them forage for the roots in the ground around their enclousure.

If you are visiting in winter, don't be disappointed as the bears are in hibernation now. In summer, you will see them roaming around their large enclosure and - on a hot day - having a dip in the water. In winter, you can go see the "Bern Show" (access through entry to Restaurant Tramdepot), which is a cosy indoor alternative.
