Bern Bears

Photographs of Bern bears, Switzerland

A famous attraction, Bern Bear Park

Legend has it that the founder of Bern, Berchtold V von Zรคhringen, killed a bear on the Aare peninsula and this led to the town being called Bern (from German "Bรคr") and explains why the city's coat of arms features a bear.

The existing Bern Bear Pits have been in the same location since 1857. In 1995/96 most areas of the Bear Pits underwent renovation with the aim of providing the bears with a habitat more naturally suited to them.

The bears are out in the open every day.
