Free entry

The Autumn Festival is THE event in Bern for the whole family. Many exciting activities on offer, such as puppet theatre, pony riding, face painting and much, much more. There are arts and crafts in the Gurtengärtli; and the miniature railway train chugs around the play park.

Try treading the boards

The highlight of the Autumn Festival of course takes place on the Jekami Stage. This is where the stars of tomorrow can experience performing on a stage for the first time, and sing a song, do a dance or tell a joke or two to a supportive audience.

Creature comforts

So that the kids don't have to waste too much of their precious playing time, food and drink is available to buy at the play park. A large selection of delicious meals and snacks can bought at the Bahnhöfli stand. The Tapis Rouge restaurant is ideal for families and invites visitors to take a welcome break.
