I’ve been in Bern few times, but only yesterday I discovered the Rose Garden. OMG!!! This peaceful place offers picture-postcard perfect views enhanced by the autumn shades.

The Rose Garden is a large park with a wonderful view of the Old Town and Aare Loop. The park is home to 220 different types of roses, 200 types of irises and moor beds with 28 different types of rhododendrons.

From 1765 to 1877 the Rose Garden served as a cemetery. Since 1913 the Rose Garden has been a public park resplendent with the rich beauty of flowers and a pond. From 1956 to 1962 the park was redesigned, introducing rhododendrons and azaleas as well as an iris garden.

A pavilion and reading garden provide a place to relax.

We didn’t try it, but the restaurant Rosengarten looks like a great place to eat while admiring the views.
