Climbing fun on the playground

Let off steam while climbing

One of Bern’s most attractive playgrounds can be found on the Gurten, surrounded by greenery. There is ample opportunity for kids to let off steam and climb around a number of different structures on the Gurten playground. The “Geschtelasch” – a huge wooden construction with nets, climbing tunnels, balancing poles and a slide – is a firm favorite with younger and older children alike. The “Crealino” concrete dragon is not only a favorite photo opportunity but a great place to climb around.

Other obstacles with different levels of difficulty can be found around the entire playground. You can climb over the miniature railway track, balance on wooden poles or play hide and seek with friends. In short, the playground with its different climbing frames offers hours of fun.

The climbing frames and the entire playground are freely accessible every day at no cost.
