Bear-y guided tour of Bern

In Bern, everything dances to the bear’s tune. Bern’s heraldic animal catches the eye wherever you go – as a chocolate bear, adorning the facades of buildings, carved in wood, as a fountain statue, on a clock or on gingerbread. And in the Bear Park on the Aare bank, you can even admire an entire family of real-live bears cavorting in their spacious enclosure. Why is the bear a Bern landmark? And how did the city come by its name? What’s the history behind the bear pit? And just how many bears are there in the Swiss capital?

Get answers to all of these questions and more during a guided tour from the main railway station down to the Bear Park. Since 2015, the Bear Park provides barrier-free access. Design a bear-y interesting fringe programme to complement your seminar in Bern!
