Bear Park in Dalhölzli - Bern

Glad to inform you that the Bern Bears will be moved out of their shoddy accomodation at the Barengräben to Dalhölzli by the Aare by 2009.

Finance was finalised yesterday, with a private individual donating 350,000 chf to make the 9.7M required.

You can read about it in The Bund

Re: Bear Park in Dalhölzli - Bern

Surprise, there have been cost overruns!

Une fosse aux ours à 14,5 millions. Initial estimate was CHF 9.7 million, new estimate is CHF 14.5 million. A mere 49% increase

But the bears are worth it... thing is Bern seems to running out of bears, I think there are only 2 left? Does anyone know if they will be getting new ones? Otherwise the park seems a little extravagant for 2 animals (am not trying to start an animal rights argument here!).

Re: Bear Park in Dalhölzli - Bern

My family and a friend traveled to Bern this past weekend (10MAY2015) to explore and see the bears. We were bummed to find that the Bear Park is closed until sometime in Autumn 2015 so they can revamp the area. A sign advised that the bears are staying at the zoo for now.
Thought I would post the info here in case others were thinking of visiting Bern to see the bears.

Re: Bear Park in Dalhölzli - Bern

The bears are currently residing in the Juraparc whilst their enclosure is being renovated.

Well worth a visit if you're in the area as are the nearby caves.

Re: Bear Park in Dalhölzli - Bern

The bears from Bärenpark (Finn, Björk, Ursina) are away in Juraparc until end of September 2015.
But the bears in Tierpark Dählhölzli (Mischa & Mascha) are still there. (You have to pay an entrance fee.)

Re: Bear Park in Dalhölzli - Bern

Hi!

Anyone has info on whether the bears at the BärenPark (http://www.tierpark-bern.ch/index-de.php?frameset=200) are out and about at this time, or still asleep?
I was planning to visit this weekend as it's my last chance to say hi to them before leaving.

Re: Bear Park in Dalhölzli - Bern

What the hell are they doing in this video? Stomach of a cow? Is that like cannabis to them?

If it were, they'd be lolling around, giggling at every grunt. Although it does look like they have a bad case of the munchies.

Die Winterruhe im BärenPark neigt sich langsam dem Ende zu. Die drei Bären, Finn, Björk und Ursina zeigen sich unregelmässig für kurze Zeit ausserhalb der Winterhöhlen. Die Wahrscheinlichkeit einen Bären zu sehen ist aber nach wie vor klein.
Here's the webcams: http://www.tierpark-bern.ch/index-de.php?frameset=222

Given the great weather forecast for the weekend you might be in luck, but do check the site before you go.

Saw one of them weekend just gone, quite close to the path.
