A fondue evening in the Stockhorn Igloo
In winter, far up the mountain, in the middle of nowhere, stands a lovingly furnished igloo. It’s perfect for a sociable little trip to the mountains. And what goes better with the snowy mountain scenery than a warm and cosy fondue? On request, you can also start with an aperitif. The frozen Hinterstockensee right outside the igloo is perfect for a wintery digestive stroll afterwards. Depending on how thick the ice is, you can also go ice-skating and show off your pirouettes – preferably before your first glass of bubbly.
Fondue Bubbles Moosegg
A winter wonderland is awaiting you at the wonderful hotel Moosegg in the hills of the Emmental: get ready to dine in one of their decorated winter bubbles with room for up to seven people. And of course, the Moosegg is focused on tasty treats: a crisp salad is served as a starter, a cheese or meat fondue with regional ingredients follows and a delicious dessert concludes the meal – what more could you want? Perhaps the magnificent view of Langnau and the Bernese Alps? That is served as a side in the Bubble.
«Jingle Bern» at Casino
“Jingle Bern” at Casino Bern is a dinner show that engages all the senses and takes its guests on an unforgettable culinary journey. The four courses are accompanied by music, magic, and even acrobatics – this Christmas spectacular is an amazing culinary experience filled with emotions. And the large, elegant hall in which it takes place boasts a glamorous chandelier, giving the event location that extra special touch and lustre.
Your event at Bern Animal Park, Dählhölzli
How about celebrating Christmas face-to-face with wolves, or maybe you prefer a party in Bern’s very own jungle? Either way, a celebration at the Dählhölzli zoo is special and unique. The event includes an exciting guided tour of the Bern AnimalPark and the menu can be put together to your liking from regional, seasonal and sustainable ingredients. One thing is clear – this event will be grrrreat fun!
Fondue fun at the Schweizerhof Hotel
Culinary delights and stunning views await at this grand location: from the Sky Terrace of “Schweizerhof Bern Hotel & Spa”, you have a 360° view of Bern’s rooftops and the snow-capped alps. For the winter season, they set up the heated “Tubbo” – a glass structure with tables and seating – where traditional Swiss dishes such as cheese fondue or fondue chinoise (also available as a vegetarian dish) are served.
Book here (booking open from November)
If you enjoy a sophisticated setting, this is just the place for you. Celebrate in beautiful wooden chalets under lit up plane trees in Landhaus Liebefeld’s cosy garden. The team of the historic house will be serving gourmet delicacies and drinks. If it gets too cold in the little chalets, you can warm up by the outdoor fire or in the bar and fireplace area.
Zentrum Paul Klee
A team event at the Zentrum Paul Klee is the ideal event for creative minds and art lovers. First, you will enjoy drinks and a large selection of nibbles, then comes a varied programme. Participants can get creative and swing a paintbrush in the Creaviva creative workshop or visit the exhibitions with the unmistakable works by Paul Klee or Isamu Noguchi. This is followed by dinner in the “Museumsstrasse”, the large hall by the entrance of Renzo Piano’s iconic building which, flooded with sunlight, sets a beautiful mood.
“Dolce far niente” in Bätterkinden: This culinary tour of Italy is the perfect event for gourmets. Selected wines from the three popular regions of Lombardy, Veneto and Piedmont accompany the dishes from Casa Nobile’s kitchen. For those who prefer something more laid-back – but just as delicious – we recommend the "Tavolata": a selection of typically Mediterranean dishes is served at the table on sharing platters, with the matching wines, of course.
A down-to-earth atmosphere and warm, traditional cuisine are your thing? Then you’ll love the rustic “Fondü-Hütte” (fondue hut) on the lovely terrace of the restaurant Schwellenmätteli. Enjoy a hearty Swiss fondue in delightful company at a long wooden table. Make sure you don’t forget to stir and don’t lose the bread! There is the option of adding an outdoor pre-dinner reception with chestnuts, pumpkin soup and mulled wine to your booking – festive holiday mood guaranteed.
If you enjoy being outdoors and eating food cooked over an open fire, you should take a look at what “chillfood” has to offer. Whether the food is melted, smoked, cooked, roasted or baked: the result are warm, comforting winter dishes – prepared over the fire. There are unconventional, weatherproof outdoor event locations (don’t worry, it is actually usually too warm rather than too cold by the fire) that can be booked for groups of any size. The “füüri” is chillfood’s weatherproof location, only a few minutes away from Bern’s main station yet directly on the beautiful green Aare river.
