Restaurants in the vicinity

We do not own a restaurant. However, there is a large selection of good restaurants in the direct vicinity of the Hotel Jardin Bern.
Only 75m / 246ft away and highly recommended is the Restaurant Lokal (reservation recommended). In summer, the Gelateria di Berna is very popular for a sweet cool-down.
For Mediterranean cuisine at a high level with the matching wine, the Büner is there for you.
A good pizza can be found in several places like the Tavola Calda or the Swiss-Italian Grotto Ticino.
You are welcome to order your meal directly to us, and eat it in our lobby. You will find a selection of suppliers on

Restaurants in the old town

With our free Bern Ticket you can reach the old town of Bern in just a few minutes. You will find a wide range of restaurants, snack bars, takeaways, pop-ups and many other culinary experiences. Would you like to try a traditional fondue? The Restaurant Harmonie next to the Zytglogge is just right for you! The traditional Bernese restaurant Della Casa with its typical Swiss cuisine is always worth a visit. You will find a pasta menu with a large selection in the Spaghetti Factory right next to the Chindlifrässer fountain. Just across the street is the Kornhaus Keller, for an elegant evening in the converted cellar. We recommend exploring the old town on foot to discover many more interesting places.

Bernese specialities

Bern cannot be imagined without the Mandelbärli almond bear. Classic with vanilla taste or available in various other varieties. The Mandelbärli are bought at the Glatz Beck bakery near the train main station. Fine syrup is available at the Sirupier de Berne, which is located in the Breitenrain district, like the Hotel Jardin Bern. The slightly hot ginger liqueur Ingwerer can be found in numerous bars and shops. A large selection of Swiss chocolate specialities can be found in Läderach in Marktgasse. Did you know that the famous triangular Toblerone chocolate was invented in Bern? You can buy it in most Swiss shops today. The cult Ovaltine (Ovomaltine) was also invented in Bern. The "Ovo" is also available in the Jardin on the breakfast buffet.
