Every winter, in the village of Kandersteg, Canton Bern, the Belle Epoque returns with incredible events and a lovely atmosphere that transports visitors back in time.

Blast from the past

For the entire week, this unique festival takes you into the past. All the cars are replaced by horse-drawn carriages on the streets, the shops are elaborately decorated to represent the olden days, and everyone is wearing long, ruffles skirts, and top hats.

Along with the old-fashioned aesthetic, Belle Epoque offers a plethora of culinary goods prepared in traditional wood-burning stoves. Prefer something fancier? Try the delightful afternoon tea!

Swing by the stunning Belle Epoque Ball in the Art Novena Style to admire people dressed up to the nines and don't forget to tip your hat at the annual best hat contest. And if you're feeling daring, try ice skating or skiing using authentic equipemnet from the olden days.  

This phenomenon is the perfect event for families and children as well.
