Suggestions for Bern/Belp area?

Hi good people of EF

As a surprise birthday for my husband I've organised a flying lesson for him at the Bern airport in Belp. We will be coming from Luzern. As the lesson only goes for an hour, it seems to be a waste just to go there and back, and I would like to extend this 'excursion' to Bern into an all day event. Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated - restaurants, nice picnic spots, lakeside swimming etc? Thanks in advance guys.

The nearest lake to Bern town is Moossee but Bern has a river (Aare) that runs through it. You could swim in it. Just jump in and let the current sweeps you down towards Marzilli.

A walk along the Aare is also recommended. Starting from Dählhölzli, then a pitstop at Schwellenmätelli, oggling the bears at Bärenpark and dinner at Altes Tramdepot.

Or you could take a walk up the Gurten.
