− culinary highlights by the river Aare

Restaurant Dampfzentrale in Swiss Bern, has been offering a wide choice of original Mediterranean cuisine since 2013. Discover Germany takes a closer look at this exceptional place. Chef Jugoslav Milenkovic’s fresh and original Mediterranean cuisine is just one of the many highlights via which Restaurant Dampfzentrale continues to delight its guests. “Being housed directly at the river Aare in a former electricity plant, Restaurant Dampfzentrale is a real eye-catcher. In summer, our guests may dine in a spaciously laid-out area at the river Aare. Fairy lights cast a pleasant light on the scenery and beautiful plant arrangements invite our guests to spend an enjoyable time on our premises. The electricity plant itself, its striking industrial appeal, imposing architecture, and remarkable traditional brick style radiates its very own flair. This ensures that the friendly gathering of friends and family becomes 60  |  Issue 67  |  October 2018

a very special occasion − even in winter,” explains Michael Hersberger, manager of Restaurant Dampfzentrale. Particularly during the chillier season, when it is too cold to sit outside, the smoker, another of the restaurant’s highlights, becomes a cosy meeting point for Dampfzentrale’s guests. “We cook meat and fish under our guests’ inquisitive eyes, to their individual taste. True indulgence simply does not come fresher or yummier,” enthuses Hersberger. Going beyond its cuisine and striking atmosphere, Restaurant Dampfzentrale is an enthralling event location and an inspiring cultural meeting place. Hersberger explains: “At Dampfzentrale, guests or interested parties not only meet to partake

in their passion for innovative forms of dance, but also to freely enjoy a myriad of performances, music and club culture, and to celebrate special events.” Are you on the lookout for exquisite cuisine served in an atmospheric setting?
