«Save Christmas» – an Outdoor Escape Game
This outdoor escape game on Bern’s local Mountain “Güsche” teaches teams the power of hacking so they can become true Christmas heroes. Armed with Bad Santa’s GPS tablet, the players set out to find the villain and put him behind bars again. On request, you can get mulled wine and roasted chestnuts along the way. If your team members are sensitive to the cold, you can also move the game inside.
TO THE OUTDOOR ESCAPE GAME
Gelato Workshop with «La Golosa»
Caramelo al burro salado, Amarena or elderflower-poppy – do you start missing your trips to the gelateria around the corner as soon as the first brown leaf has fallen from the trees? With «La Golosa», you can now have a completely new kind of team event: from November to March, gourmet-loving teams can now find the answer to the question of all questions in a gelato workshop: who makes the best gelato? And if you think, gelato should only be eaten in 35-degree weather, when the Aare is warm, «La Golosa» will prove you wrong.
CONE OR CUP?
Fire cooking with «chillfood»
If you enjoy the fresh air and like to cook (or be cooked for) over an open fire, you better take a closer look at what «chillfood» has to offer. Melt, smoke, cook, roast or bake your way to warm, comforting winter dishes prepared over an open fire. Events for large and small groups can be booked at unconventional, weatherproof outdoor event locations – it’s usually too warm rather than too cold around the fire. «chillfood» has a weatherproof venue called «füüri», only a few minutes from Bern main station, and yet located directly on the beautiful green Aare.
FIRE IT UP
Gin&Dine in the Matte Distillery
The Matte Distillery is once again getting ready for its Gin&Dine, where experts pour gin and reveal secrets from Bern’s best-known distillery with «Sloe Gin Tonic». And since the distillery is located in the Matte district, you’re actually inside the “real Bern”. Here, teams can learn exciting facts about the popular juniper schnapps and are then treated to a (g)inspired menu in the original Fischerstübli, guaranteeing a great time, a feast for your palate and maybe a few gin-induced ideas.
Bake your own Christmas cookies
You can create your own Christmas delicacies – from delicious cookies to the seasonally fitting gingerbread house to self-poured chocolate Santas – under the expert guidance of the Kambly Maîtres Confiseurs. To ensure that all creations look good enough to eat, participants will be guided through the process step-by-step. This baking event can be combined with an aperitif in the Kambly Experience, where you will be able to enjoy Kambly’s unmistakable savoury biscuits.
GET CREATIVE WITH COOKIES
Christmas Path Ochlenberg
Do you know that sound that silence makes when it gets really quiet? It’s precisely this feeling that gets lost in our hectic lives. The family Jordi knows how to recreate it: the romantic Christmas path Ochlenberg is set in idyllic surroundings and tells the Christmas story with eight cute little houses decorated with woollen figures. Especially in the evening, once it’s already dark and you can see the fairy lights around the houses, this walk will warm your heart even in the most bitter cold.
OFF TO THE JORDIHOF
City Tour through Bern
Is there anybody who knows everything about Bern? Probably Bern Welcome’s city guides. They tell you exciting, astonishing and funny stories on their tours: for example, on the «Bern for the Bernese» tour, they even manage to surprise longtime residents with previously unknown facts. And that’s a promise! However, if you prefer liquids, you can immerse yourself in the local beer culture on our «Bernese Beer Tour» where you’ll learn more than just dry theory.
Autumn and Winter Magic at Zehendermätteli
One thing is clear for Zehendermätteli’s team: a team event should be more than just eating together once a year. They know that shared experiences strengthen team spirit. Their «Torch Walk» from the Reichenbach Forest to the Zehendermätteli Oasis gives teams the gift of time: they can consciously enjoy, chat and even create a few lightbulb moments. And why wouldn’t you want to dine in the Event Greenhouse afterwards? You’ll be sat between three 80-year-old olive trees and enjoying the cosy atmosphere created by dimmed lights and candlelight.
LET YOURSELF BE ENCHANTED
They say that horses help you find your soul. If you and your team want to find out if that is true, you better trot over to Horsesense Coaching. With a helping hoof from these gregarious animals, Horsesense’s horse experts can help you change perspectives, define roles and simply break out of your daily routine, ensuring that business can continue at a gallop in the new year.
SADDLE UP AND GO
Christmas Quiz by Berger Events
This event will make you discover Bern’s alleys, customs and traditions. During a leisurely evening stroll through the Christmas-decorated streets, you will take part in a Christmas quiz in different groups. Don’t worry, you can warm up your hands on a mug of hot mulled wine or punch, and there’s even an award ceremony for the team that solves the quiz first.
