Asian Tavolata at Mishio
Who says you can’t celebrate Christmas with a crispy duck and chopsticks? If you can enjoy a fondue in the middle of summer, you can just as well savour a cold beer with Asian food in winter. If you’re in the mood for a different kind of team Christmas this year, Mishio will serve up an exquisite Asian fusion tavolata
Christmas meal with a view into the universe
If you want to see something more than the Star of Bethlehem and take off into space at this year’s office Christmas party, you should make your way to the Nature Park Gantrisch. A special multimedia experience centre will open there this autumn. The planetarium, designed by star architect Mario Botta, lets you look into space and can also be rented for (Christmas) events. On request, groups can indulge in a spacey menu inside the Space Eye – it’s so delicious that the whole team will see stars.
COMMUNAL STARGAZING ANYONE?
Raclette in the YB chalet
For 125 years, the yellow-and-black club has been an integral part of the Swiss football scene. In the run-up to Christmas, roasted chestnuts and raclette will be served on the Quartierplatz in front of the Bernese Young Boys’ home stadium, instead of the usual YB sausage and champion’s beer. Meanwhile, the traditional YB chalet is serving up true football romance at rustic wooden tables, surrounded by warm lights, soft furs and a few merchandise items. The cosy ambiance is perfect for getting together and reminiscing over past and upcoming plays – with or without additional time.
Pass for the Christmas Party
A cosy get-together in the Fondue-Spycher
Did someone say fondue? The Romantik Hotel Bären Dürrenroth really lives up to its name during the most wonderful time of the year. This authentic, family-run hotel serves a creamy fondue made with one of the first-grade cheeses from the «Dorfchäsi» (village cheese dairy). The cosy atmosphere, charming furnishings and warm hospitality make everybody feel right at home – so much so, that people will want to stay for a while. If you’d rather avoid cheese, they also offer a Fondue Chinoise on request.
Let’s meet up
Christmas meal in the tropics
Yes, the temperatures are dropping, and the weather is getting greyer, but the chattering of your teeth should not be louder than the clinking of champagne glasses. But the Tropenhaus Frutigen has a solution: after a short acclimatising aperitif with mulled wine or a tropical punch, it’s time to step into the tropical garden and enjoy regional and homemade specialities in the cosy warmth and tropical ambience – jungle feeling guaranteed.
Let’s go warm up

Here you can enjoy a hearty Swiss fondue at long, wooden tables – but don’t forget to stir and whatever you do, do not lose your bread. And if you’re ready for even more Christmas spirit, you can order an outdoor aperitif with roasted chestnuts, pumpkin soup and mulled wine.
Ready, set, fondue!
