Fondue fun in Bern

Winter means the fondue season has begun! From a charming chalet atmosphere to cosy cable cars and rickshaws – we reveal the eight best places to indulge in mouthwatering cheese fondue in Bern.

Sitting together with friends in a warm and welcoming ambience and dipping bread in melted cheese is definitely possible even with the coronavirus still around. This is because the virus is transmitted via the air we breathe. According to the Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office, there is no known case in which anyone has been infected via food. In short, it is not the act of eating fondue that can cause transmission of the virus but rather non-compliance with the current rules concerning hygiene and conduct. For this reason, compliance with the Federal Office of Public Health measures is crucial.

  • Fact

    Due to the current situation, the bars and restaurants close at 9:00 p.m. and only a maximum of four people may sit together at a table.
