For four days, Berne will become a Mecca for gamers. The Play Bern gaming festival will offer a mixture of play, discovery, trial, programming and discussion. Unusual games and odd ideas are given special importance. The topic of the 2021 festival is "Utopia!": Play Bern is doing away with dystopias and will be playing towards a positive future!


Competition for families

Children aged 8-16 can take part in the 2021 children's competition, which runs until 10 October. Prizes worth a total of CHF 3,000 will be up for grabs.

The festival is aimed at interested gamers of all ages, regardless of whether or not they have gaming experience. It is supported by the Migros Culture Percentage
