*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: 3013 Bern
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Altenberg Restaurant garden

On the second Tuesday of each month we meet up for a meal and a chat at a reasonably priced restaurant in Bern.

The restaurant Altenberg has been owned and run for many years by an eastern Turkish family. There is a large terrace under big trees, next to the river, so it will be cool in the evening, and about 60 places inside if it rains. You can bring dogs, but please smoke downwind from me,

I can't find the menu online, but we can expect Turkish & Mediterranean food, which in the past has been very popular with our group.
A plate of Donner meat, rice & salad costs Fr 22,-- . A mixed starter and bread costs Fr 21,-- A large beer is Fr 6,70 a small wine is Fr 9,--

Car parking is limited, about 5 restaurant places & then blue zone parking.

Below the Kornhaus road bridge is a foot bridge, low down, just above the river. If you go to the Kornhausplatz, then walk to the right and down the hill on Grabenpronenade. Keep right and there is a tunnel under the road, then you can walk down to the river, and then across the foot bridge, and turn left for the restaurant

Please don't choose the "maybe" selection. I spend Tuesday trying to contact you, as I find it embarrassing explaining that I don't know if the guest is coming or not. There is a useful reminder function at the top right on this page, please decide, yes or no.

Please note: the restaurant doesn't take cards, you must pay cash.

I will close the reservation list at 4pm on Tuesday, and then tell the restaurant exactly how many of us are coming.

Looking forward to seeing you there, hopefully the weather will be nice!
If the weather is nice I will probably go there a bit earlier and drink a large beer...

Bring a sweater or a jacket, it does get cool later as the river takes the warmth away.

The river Aare is on the right behind the trees. You can see the
Kornhaus bridge in the distance, higher up.

I have reserved a table for 14 guests. I will adjust the final number at 16:00 on Tuesday 12th. Don't forget to bring cash!

The weather will probably be dry and around 19 degrees C. So come along everyone, you are all welcome, but bring a jacket.

Roll up, roll up! Last orders please!

Anyone fancy a dinner with 10 English speakers? The list closes at 4 pm, thanks.

One day, I really must try and make the effort.

Just bad timing - I was in Bern, on a the last Tuesday in July ....... and ended up in BK; and the 18.04 with full belly of two menu meals.

We generally meet the 2nd Tuesday of the month, if that helps with your timing.

Yep, I realise that, but I just have to take the appointment as it comes, and now the frequency is every 6 mths., instead of three.

Not me, I'm afraid. I'm on a helath kick and will be out on the bike this evening.

For all the good it's doing me .

I can imagine a helath kick is quite painful. Better come for dinner, and cycle home?

Table changed from 14 to 10 guests.

Turkish food can be healthy. Just drink one less beer. And cycle home, of course.

A) I don't have my bike here
B) I don't fancy biking home to Fribourg in the dark with no lights

You could always walk. It might take a while and I wouldn't recommend walking down the motorway but it would burn a few calories.
