Winter Excursions

Heat out and enjoy the winter fun in the Bern Region. Whether or not you are on the ski slopes, no one falls by the wayside here!

 Schwarzsee ice palace

Ice artist Karl Neuhaus whisks you away to a fairytale world of ice and light in a wooded grove just near the Schwarzsee. Walk through the ice palace  or climb on top – an adventure for both adults and children. Warm and cold refreshments and snacks are available for purchase on site. Open from Christmas until early March.


 Mountain lake in winter

The frozen Schwarzsee mountain lake is wonderful for ice skating. An ice rink is maintained and a number of ice hockey rinks are available, weather permitting. Discover the magnificent winter panorama on a walk or in a horse-drawn sled over the lake. Ice crossing at your own risk!




 Igloo Hotel
Come inside and forget the cold. The Kemmeriboden-Bad Hotel offers an igloo guest house for an overnight stay or a Fondue party after an outing in the snow. Other temting highlights include the sauna, hot tub and steam showers just next to the igloos as well as a generous breakfast. The Hotel Landgasthof Kemmeriboden-Bad is now listed as a Swiss Heritage site.
