In addition to the numerous types of beer on tap, the food stands will also serve up culinary highlights, turning the event on the festival grounds in Bern’s Holligen district into a satisfyingly complete open-air experience for all visitors.
Started in 2017 by five beer-loving friends, the festival aims to introduce hops fans to top-quality yet still unknown beers from the region. Under an open sky and with a balmy summer breeze, ZAPF! fulfills all your beery dreams and promotes the regional art of brewing.
A helpful tip: As part of an eco-friendly effort, all of the beer will be served in the official ZAPF! festival glasses. A glass is included with admission (don’t lose your token!). Only cash is accepted at the food stands.
Tickets can be purchased on site or in advance from the website. A standard ticket costs 10 francs and can only be purchased in advance. With the purchase of a “Beer Friend” ticket for 15 francs, visitors can help to cover the costs of hosting this event. Both tickets have the same value in all other regards.
