Raclette Stroll

Discovering Bern on a walk trough the city and enjoying a delicious Raclette underneath the night sky: a perfect Bernese outdoor experience.

The al-fresco Raclette is perfect for gourmets looking for something new! The idea is simple: just pick up a Raclette-Rucksack (raclette backpack) at Restaurant Lötschberg and off you go through the city. The walk takes you to the loveliest places, along the Aare river or through the Dählhölzli forest all the way to your new favourite spot, where you can unpack the backpack and let the Raclette fun begin.

The best thing about it: the raclette set is very small and handy, the cheese is melted by the heat coming from small candles – so when you’re looking for the perfect dining spot, you don’t have to keep electricity outlets or a certain amount of space in mind.
