City/Town: Bern, Bärengraben
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Altes Tram Depot restaurant



http://www.altestramdepot.ch/htm/e_home.htm

We are returning to this large restaurant next to the bear gardens, above the Aare river. The big attraction is they have a micro brewery and make some very good beer there. The food is also substantial and good, and the menu is in four languages, now how often do you see that? Several dishes can be considered truly Swiss.

The table will be reserved under the name "English Club" the dining room reception desk will indicate where we are sitting. The reservation list closes at 4pm on Tuesday 14th April.

Everyone is invited: but we limit the number of guests to 3, as we feel you should talk to your relatives, and not bring them out for us to entertain.

Please make a definite reservation, no maybe please, as I don't enjoy chasing after you on Tuesday to find out if you are coming, or not. At 4pm I tell the restaurant exactly how many people are coming.

Parking is fairly easy nearby, or you can take the number 12 bus to "Bärengraben" from the station, it's running every few minutes.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

No age limits ...... although, ability to punctuate is an advantage.

(Provided you're old enough to go out at night).

Why are you not coming to the meal Timow? You are frightening the newcomers away...

What if we don't actually like beer (though I like bears)? Will we be shunned?

No, you'll still get hugs and kisses. It just seems silly for the beer lovers not to come to this one.

They do sell other drinks, and the beers are not pushed upon you.

The bears are on holiday in the Jura while their bedrooms are being repaired and decorated. Nothing about this on their website!

Since this one falls during the school holidays he's probably busy elsewhere.

Just for the information of those who are coming without GAs...

The bus to take to the restaurant is the number 12 from Bahnhof (Bahnhofplatz, main station entrance), going towards the restaurant is direction "Zentrum Paul Klee" (and returning the direction is towards "Länggasse").

Libero fare for short journey is CHF 2.- with half-fare card, valid for single, one-way journey up to 30 minutes (the ride to the stop, Bärengraben, is about 6 minutes according to SBB/CFF). That's the cheapest for those that need to buy a ticket, as the day ticket (Tageskarte, Carte Journaliere) is more expensive than two of these.

Yes, you can stop laughing now... some of us don't have GAs....

Well I won't be coming with gas I can assure you...

Restaurant is informed, the reservation has now firmed up at 15 adults, plus one stroller for the younger generation, no GA necessary.

Lotte also lives in Murten and I am bringing her by car tonight.

If you don't mind a nice stroll in this lovely weather, you can save 2 chuffs and walk - it's only 15-20 mins between Bahnhof and the restaurant (depending on how fast you walk).
