Tropenhaus Frutigen

A tropical island in the heart of the Alps

This one-of-a-kind centre offers visitors the opportunity to learn and experience – and even taste - how all this is possible in the Alps! The fruits grown on the premises, as well as the centre’s sturgeon meat and caviar, are served up as fresh, authentic dishes in the Tropenhaus’s very own restaurants.
