Let’s get back out there before the first snow comes!
In autumn, you enjoy every beautiful day, knowing that it might be the last warm day of the year. So it is no wonder that everyone goes outside once again!
People from Bern and guests enjoy the Elfenau park in the recreational area on the outskirts of the city to catch the last rays of sunshine. Whether it’s a picnic by the Aare, a coffee at the Orangerie, a break on the bench with a beautiful view, or simply taking the dog for a walk – the Elfenau is always worth a visit. Another popular place for day trips is the open-air museum Ballenberg. Here you can dive into the stories of over 100 houses and 250 farm animals. You can learn about traditional crafts and visit exciting exhibitions and events. For those who like to lend a hand, there are various interactive stations where you can touch, do things yourself, and try them out. For nature and history enthusiasts, this is a good alternative and less expensive than the nearby Jungfraujoch.
If you are still looking for tropical conditions in bad weather, the Tropic House in Frutigen is the place to be. Located in the Berner Oberland, it awaits its visitors not only with humid temperatures and exotic plants but in addition to the various guided tours, it also offers a range of events, an insight into the internal caviar breeding and satisfies hungry mouths in the renowned in-house restaurant.
Should the gloomy days become even more frequent, the Kambly factory in Trubschachen in the Emmental will delight you with sweet and salty classics – such as the “Pretzel” or the “Goldfish.” Next to the factory store and the café, there are interactive events for both young and grown-up guests. You can even enter the world of Kambly with even more comfort on the Kambly train from Bern. Time even flies during another “bad weather excursion”: in the communication museum. Its exhibitions and activities take a stand on the social and cultural impact of communication and its technologies. Regardless of age, it combines history with interactive fun.

And if you’re still in a mourning mood after the summer, just splash around in Bernaqua or visit the Sensorium Rüttihubelbad in Walkringen. Lousy weather is quickly forgotten!
