Welcome to the Federal City Bern

Experience the federal city in a completely new way - from now on in the area Tierpark - Dählhölzli - Elfenau, later also in the city centre. The orienteering races are changed regularly so that you can always experience something new.

There are currently three railways in the Dählhölzli - Elfenau area. You can start at any station of the respective course. The finish line is again the starting point. Suitable entry points are for example the forest entrance Thunplatz (stop bernmobil Thunplatz, tram 7, 8, bus 19, 28, 31), or the forest entrance Tierpark (bus 19).

Unfortunately, vandalism occurs again and again - postage labels are vandalized deliberately. We check the routes regularly, but we are also grateful for tips.
