"Bärengraben (Bear Pits)" Bear pit Tip by sabsi

Bear pit, Bern: 34 reviews and 66 photos

by sabsi

Since the late 15th century the city of Bern keeps some bears - Bern's heraldic animal - in pits in the city.
You can feed them and they dance for you if they have a good day! But it's hard to have a good day if you live in a concrete hole in the ground I guess...
