Kornhauskeller Restaurant

A unique restaurant in the heart of the city of Bern – a place to relax and enjoy. Kornhauskeller Restaurant is located in the most splendid vaulted cellar in Bern.

The charm of the past blends perfectly here with the stylish interior decorating. This architectural gem is home not only to a library and the Kornhaus Forum but also to two restaurants. The Kornhaus in Bern’s Old Town has centuries of history behind it and is an important meeting place for artists, art lovers, literature buffs and epicureans.

The vaulted cellar of the Restaurant Kornhauskeller

The dimensions of the vaulted cellar are impressive. Originally constructed according to a design by Hans Jakob Dünz, the restaurant in this Baroque building attracts guests with its culinary offerings and an exceptional ambiance. The nave and the two aisles remind you of church architecture and lend the Kornhauskeller a sacred air. The unique balance between lines, repetition, illumination, artistic frescoes and modern furnishings turns a visit to the Kornhauskeller into an experience.

Gourmands will feel right at home here. Everything at the Kornhauskeller is prepared with passion, skill and attention to detail. The menu includes Bernese specialities and traditional dishes. The culinary focus is on regional and seasonal products. An impressive selection of wines to accompany your meal is offered from the restaurant’s own vinotheque.

Kornhauskeller Bar

Relax and let the day end: The Kornhaus Gallery Bar

The Kornhauskeller is divided into two levels. Guests can dine at Restaurant Kornhauskeller, located in the vaulted cellar, while the Galeriebar is on the upper level. This is the place to meet for cocktails, an after-work beer or to enjoy a digestif after dinner.

Whiskey fans in particular will be thrilled by the large selection of single malts. If you want to end your evening on a relaxed note, make yourself comfy in a lounge chair and just soak up the atmosphere. Find out more about the drinks menu, prices and bar here.
