Tropical plants: Orchids, bananas and papayas in the heart of the Bernese Oberland

Tropical fruits: Banana, Papaya and Co.

The warm climate and the possibility of allowing the fruit to ripen naturally  results in an incomparable fruit taste. In the cultivation and care of the plants, we have been able to profit from the experience of the  Tropenhaus Wolhusen, which has also been cultivating tropical fruit since 1999.
An annual production of 2 tons of bananas, papayas, mangos, carambola, dwarf bananas, guavas, physalis, litchi, durian, mangostana, pomelo, pomegranate, avocados, pineapple and kumquat is planned for the greenhouse.
According to availability, our own fruit will be offered, freshly prepared, in our restaurants and the shop of the Tropenhaus Frutigen. 

Tropical orchids

With an ancillary installation and warm temperatures the whole year round, a green island of a fine collection of orchids and other exotic beauties was created in the greenhouse. The special microclimate is as close as possible to conditions in damp, tropical mountain forests.


Ginger, chilli, vanilla, pepper
Depending on the season and availability, we sell these products in our Tropenhaus Shop.

With Trump on the campaign trail, Melania has stoically stood by his side.
