Tierpark Dahlholzli reviews
We walked the long paths up the mountain and experienced the Aare river summer fun. The park is well shaded and animals were close and fun to see,

We enjoyed our visit with the kids there, seeing the animals. And the small pic-nic area also features a nice food provider with hot-dogs or fish'n'chips which were surprisingly good :-)

Great park for children. Adapted for all age categories with a lot of shadow and a few playgrounds. There is also a significant part that is free of charge along the river Are. Perfect for hot days as the park is half in the forest. The entry fee is quite reasonable, but the takeaway restaurant is quite expensive even for simple, high margin meals. OK if some part of the benefits goes to the park itself tho, but cannot confirm.
The funny thing is that half of the zoo is outside of the entrance, so if you decide not to visit the zoo you can still watch half of it before the actual visit. It’s a small entrance price but the vicarium is so cool I really recommend going in. I saw happy animals, beautiful plants and beautiful enclosures! Its a small zoo but still nice to drop by on your trip to Bern! ✌🏼🇨🇭
