This is what your fall holidays could look like, ensuring that all family members experience their very own favourite moments in the federal city as well as exciting adventures and the famous laid-back attitude of the city and its people. Our suggestion:

Day 1

The first day is all about discovery. Have the donkeys at the petting zoo already eaten their breakfast carrots? And where is your personal favourite spot for a raclette cheese picnic?

  • “Familiezyt” advantage

    Upon presentation of your Bern Ticket at the ticket counter, “Familiezyt” hotel guests receive one free admission valid for the entire family to the Bern Animal Park, Dählhölzli.

  • “Familiezyt” advantage

    Upon presentation of the voucher handed out at your hotel’s reception, “Familiezyt” hotel guests receive a 50% discount per person on the raclette picnic walk from Restaurant Lötschberg (9.50 francs per person or 14.50 francs per person including wine). Telephone reservations beforehand are a must at +41 31 311 34 55.

Day 2

Plenty of action and the necessary refuelling stops await your family on the second day. After yesterday’s adventure, it's time to take the kids to the museum – and did someone mention pizza?

Day 3

The programme on the third day (unlike the main protagonist) has no holes at all. You’ll find that there is a great deal to discover and experience at the Emmentaler Show Dairy.

  • “Familiezyt” advantage

    Upon presentation of your Bern Ticket at the entrance, “Familiezyt” hotel guests will receive a “2 for 1” discount for the “King’s Way” tour at the Emmentaler Show Dairy.
