moreOwner description: Experience the green paradise
At the foot of the Bernese High Alps lies a paradise waiting to be discovered: Tropenhaus Frutigen. The mountain water, the fish farming and the tropical garden – a harmonious trio under one roof with three times the appeal, along with an innovative energy concept.
The tropical atmosphere, fish farming and alpine setting form a unique combination world-wide. For example, it relies upon closed, resource-efficient material cycles and renewable energies. It reminds us that where it stands today once stood a tropical climate: 250 to 300 million years ago dinosaurs also lived here among the fish: the sturgeon that are bred in Tropenhaus Frutigen.

Sturgeon and caviar: the stars in the Restaurant Tropengarten
The Restaurant Tropengarten is inspired on a daily basis by the high-quality products from fish and caviar farming and the abundance of fruits and spices from the tropical garden. They are the stars that the kitchen chefs passionately combine with seasonal – usually re-gional – products. The special atmosphere in the restaurant amidst the tropical plants is captivating, as is the cuisine – mouth-watering delicacies that make visitors feel as though they are actually in the tropics.
