More space for fewer animals®

You can really experience something here!

Brown bears in the heart of the city of Bern, in a generously-sized, humane enclosure - a unique experience. On the banks of the river Aare, opposite to the old town, live three brown bears.

It's a relaxing leisure pursuit to take a walk around the enclosure then along the Aare river to the Dählhölzli, home to more fascinating animals.

You can observe from the upper terrace or from the Aare how the powerful bears search out food, laze around in the sun or take a cool bath.
