for a nice walk along the river Aare - if you walk against the current you will end up in wonderful nature... If you walk with the current you'll arrive at the "Bärengraben" (yes, Bern has bears).

Free bath located at the aare (river). Nice place to swimm and relax. Very crowded on sunny days. (Beware: swimming in the aare is dangerous, please ask us for advice)

“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. ”
