Emmentaler cheese and Toblerone

Taste and tradition in the Bern and Emmental regions. They say that the residents of Bern live life at a slower pace than people elsewhere – what better for the visitor looking for fine food and wine? Pair a break in culture-filled Bern with a visit to its magical and richly traditional countryside – an unforgettable combination not to be missed.

The world-famous cheese with holes, and those chocolate triangles.

A glance at the culinary treasure-chest of the Schweizer Mittelland reveals a surprising number of world-famous specialities. Who doesn’t know the Swiss cheese with the big holes? Or the triangular chocolate with the unmistakable peaks? Emmentaler cheese and Toblerone chocolate from Bern are just two of the many gastronomic highlights of the region.

A world-class city filled with nature’s best flavours

From down-to-earth cuisine up to GaultMillau heaven.

In Lucerne and Schwyz and all around Lake Lucerne, a passion for producing quality ingredients and transforming them into flavourful dishes has made the region a gourmet’s paradise.

The fertile countryside and award-winning chefs are a perfect combination.

The area around fertile Lake Lucerne is where the classic Älplermagronen (baked macaroni with potatoes) and many other regional specialities were first made. The creative cooks of Central Switzerland have turned this little-known gem into a world-class gastronomic destination. In the city of Lucerne alone, the concentration of top chefs is striking: 16 restaurants have 250 Gault- Millau points among them. More than two dozen other wellregarded restaurants are scattered throughout the region.

With the gourmets of Graubünden

Completely natural.

Bündnerfleisch (air-dried beef), Nusstorte (walnut cake), and tasty Capuns (chard dumplings) are all specialities from Switzerland’s largest holiday region. Less well known, but no less exquisite, are the wines produced in the small but superb Bündner Herrschaft area. Cheers – or as we say here, Viva!

Tradition at its finest – rediscovered.

The flavourful cooking of Graubünden evolved in relative isolation, long unnoticed by the outside world. Though only recently rediscovered, it has a tradition going back thousands of years. Its dishes, which often bear names in the Rhaeto-Romanish language spoken here, are so well established that it would be impossible to conceive of local menus without specialities such as Pizokels (buckwheat gnocchi), Capuns (chard-wrapped dumplings), or Plain in pigna (baked potato pudding with ham and bacon).

Traditions and pleasures

The homeland of natural delights.

Welcome to this beautiful part of Switzerland, where precision watches are made. And welcome to its hospitable hotels and restaurants, whose kitchens and cellars serve the gifts of nature, exquisitely prepared.

In the land of delicious surprises.

From the heights and gentle lower slopes of the Jura and to the wide open spaces of the 3 Lakes Region, this part of Switzerland forms an exquisite scenic backdrop to its gastronomic variety. The different landscapes, shaped by land and water, complement each other beautifully. The lakes of Neuchâtel, Biel and Murten are surrounded by vineyards which flourish in the mild sunny climate. In the neighbouring heights of the Jura a very different sight greets visitors – the whole of the Swiss Mittelland below and the chain of the Alps shimmering on the horizon.
