Spring festival

The children's attraction on Bern's local mountain

Fun and games all day

The spring festival on the Gurten is back! After two years of downtime, the popular and traditional festival for families can finally take place again. 
Every year at the beginning of spring, the Gurten is transformed into a fairground-like event with a wide variety of child-friendly attractions. Many exciting activities, games and competitions are offered for the children. The Gurtengärtli opens its garden gate so children can make great objects to take home. On the large meadow, the little ones can ride ponies, at various booths of our partners can be tinkered, puzzled, played and snacked.

The spring festival on the Gurten is supported by the Migros Culture Percentage, part of the social commitment of the Migros Group: migros-engagement.ch.
