Frutigen Tropical House

Experience the wonderful greenery

At the foot of the Bernese Alps, there’s a paradise waiting to be discovered – the Frutigen Tropical House. The Alpine water, the fish farm and the tropical gardens – a harmonious trio under one roof, as well as a triply innovative energy concept.

Dank der Wärme, die durch das Bergwasser des Lötschberg-Basistunnels gewonnen wird können seit 2009 in Frutigen Wärme liebende Fische und Pflanzen in Gewächshäuser gezüchtet werden. Die Gewächshäusern im Tropengarten sind frei zugänglich, man sollte aber einen Besuch der kostenpflichtigen Ausstellung nicht verpassen. Den zu lernen wie ein grünes Wunder im Mitte der Alpen entstehen konnte und wie das natürlich warme Wasser aus dem Lötschberg genutzt wird um tropische Früchte zu züchten und Kaviar zu produzieren ist eindrücklich. Für den Kinder gibt es einen speziellen Entdeckertour. Am Schluss hat die Möglichkeit im Shop die tropischen Früchte zu kaufen oder sie im Restaurant zu degustieren.

Der RegioExpress Lötschberger bringt Sie in weniger als 45 Minuten und ohne Umsteigen nach Frutigen. Danach sind es nur noch ein paar Minuten Bus bis zum Tropenhaus Frutigen.

    Temporary exhibition

    Experience how the naturally warm water from the Lötschberg is used to grow tropical fruits and to produce real sturgeon caviar. In five thematic worlds, visitors are invited to an interactive exhibition. The topics of water, sturgeon, caviar, pleasure and energy, always in close connection with the events within the tropical house, are animated and communicated in a playful manner, giving the opportunity to learn a lot of new things and to try them out. At the beginning, virtual figures – a groundhog from the region, a sturgeon, a scientist, and a cook – welcome you and guide you through the exhibition.

    Temporary exhibition Bis am 30. Juni 2020

    The Return of the Sturgeons

    Overfishing, pollution and interference with natural habitats are all reasons why more than half of all 26 species of sturgeon are threatened with extinction. Since 1990, efforts have been made in Europe to reintroduce this fascinating fish – efforts that have proved successful. The aim is to restore self-sustaining populations of sturgeon to their former areas of distribution.
