Beekeeper-Tour Hotel Schweizerhof Bern

In which room do the house bees of the Hotel Schweizerhof Bern live? How does fine flower nectar become sticky honey? And what does a bee colony do when its queen dies? The answers can be found on the beekeeper tour!

On the beekeeper tour, participants learn everything about the life of the « Schweizerhof-Bees ». After a short introduction from the beekeeper Jo Lang we will go up to the roof top of the 5-star hotel in the middle of the Old Town. Not only a spectacular view of the Swiss capital awaits you, but also three bee colonies.

Savely packed in protective suits Jo Lang takes the group on a visit to the bees and gives exciting insights into his daily work. With a lot of passion he explains everything around the life of the bees how they work and how it works with the honey production.

After the tour a degustation should not be missed, because depending on which plants are in bloom, the honey tastes completely different. In addition there's the Ruby Squeeze honey cocktail and delicious aperitif snacks.
