Altes Tramdepot – THE place for beer lovers

The name says it all; this huge restaurant used to be the place where the trams in Bern went to sleep. I really like the architectural style of the 1890s which is quite noticeable on its façade. For 20 years now, the Altes Tramdepot has proven to be the perfect place for connoisseurs of the hoppy brew.

All beers are produced without any additives, right in the restaurant itself. The huge copper buckets have a capacity of 310,000 liters of beer. Every year, the local beer sommeliers create more than 30 new beer specialities, unfiltered, naturally cloudy, from ale through dark beer to wheat beer.

The menu is great for meat lovers, I prefer just having a warm homemade bretzel, though. What I also like about Altes Tramdepot is the amazing view of the old town, situated on the other side of the river Aare. Altes Tramdepot hosts regular beer and even whiskey courses and in the shop you can buy kegs of up to 50 liters for your next party.
