Bern has spared no expense to ensure the welfare of its heraldic animals. It cost millions of dollars to replace the legendary bear pit with a modern park in which they can climb, fish, play and withdraw. The 6,000 square meters large premises range from the erstwhile bear pit on the banks of the Aare (opposite the Old Town) to the river.

The "Bear Pit", which still exists, and remains at the bears' disposal, has been listed as one of the federal cultural objects of national significance and has been included in the highest cantonal preservation category. The pit is connected to the park via a tunnel.

Guests can go on a tour of the old bear pit as well as the new bear park. They get to see the new park with its green hilly terrain, which includes caves and the "Bear Bath" in the Aare River.

Information

Important notice:
Due to construction work the three brown bears Finn, Björk and Ursina are taking a break at the JuraParc Vallorbe in Vaud from April until the end of September 2015. Additional information is found here: Bärenpark
