Zoo
“About a half of the Dählhölzli is freely accessible or visible, for example the enclosures along the Aare river, the childrens' zoo and the lynx park, the wisent forest, and also the grouse and flamingo enclosures are all free. But if you wish to see more animals or if you feel like a walk over the footbridge into the forest, you will have to pay to get into the Dählholzli zoo at the entrance to the vivarium. ”

Park
“You can observe live bears right in the heart of the Swiss capital. The BearPark is home to Finn, Björk, and their daughter Ursina. The animals have been living in the new park along the bank of Aare since 2009. The new BearPark provides a landscape where the brown bears can climb, fish and play, but also just retreat and relax. It's also a perfect place to get some at the sun sitting next to the river Aare and if you like even cool your feet inside.”

“Ob mit Kaffee und Gipfeli beim kleinen «Zmorge» oder etwas ausgiebiger beim «Grossen Frühstück»: Das Restaurant Rosengarten hat für jeden Appetit etwas auf der Speisekarte. Zur wunderbaren Aussicht auf das UNESCO Weltkulturerbe der Berner Altstadt wird täglich von 9:00 bis 11:30 Uhr ein Frühstück aus regionalen Produkten serviert. Extras wie Rührei mit Speck oder einen Fleisch- und Käseteller gibt’s auf Wunsch zum Brunch dazu.”
