The Gurten is a mountain situated just to the south of Bern, the capital city of Switzerland. It is 864 metres (2,835 ft) high, and the summit yields views of Bern, of the Jura mountains and of the Alps.

 

Facilities on the Gurten include a hotel, restaurants, a viewing tower and a children's playground. Winter sports facilities are available in winter.

 

The Gurten is accessible on foot, or by the Gurtenbahn funicular railway, from Wabern. Wabern can itself be reached from central Bern by tram, train or car.
