Altes Tramdepot

(27 Wows)

Bern, bears and beer – they go together like hops and malt. From the famous BearPark, where Bern’s resident brown bears, Finn, Björk and their daughter Ursina, live in a 6,000-m2 natural enclosure, it’s just a few steps to the Altes Tramdepot, a restaurant and brewery all in one. While papa bear Finn takes his daily bath outside in the Aare river, inside 3,100 hectoliters of beer are brewed every year. Two giant, gleaming copper kettles stand in the middle of the restaurant, and even a trip to the john is a memorable experience thanks to the brewing room in the basement. By the way, If you have to look up the difference between top-fermented and bottom-fermented in a dictionary (sorry, on Google), then master brewer Christian Stoiber and his colleagues can assist you. Every Saturday, beer buffs will take you on a 45-minute journey through the world of beer during the brewery tour.

    Good place but they won't transfer your bar bill to the restaurant!

    Has a nice vibe. Good beer and nice big tables.

    Definitely a must for beer lovers! Don't forget to book a table when going there at the weekend!

    We go for the beer and the location, but the Swiss food on offer is really ho-hum and not the best examples.

    Special praise for the home brewed beer! Seasonal change of sorts, except the three main sorts.

    Very tasty deserts but the place is always quite crowded.
