Even taking in consideration the historic importance and symbolism of the bear in history of Bern, it's just sad to see the conditions in which those beautiful animals are kept on display.

For me, it was not the best of the welcome cards, standing right at the entrance of town and in front of the Information Office.

Update: These thoughts are related to my visit last year. Thankfully, Sonja alerted me to the facto that the bears are now kept in a much better space, near the river.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
