At Our Chalet we provide several catering options to our guests to meet dietary requirements
Catered by Our Chalet
We offer guests the opportunity to be catered for breakfast, packed lunch and dinner. All three meals are available on most dates for guests staying in Main Chalet or Spycher House and must be booked in advance. Guests can choose to book as many or as few meals as they wish.
Event packages organized by Our Chalet include full board unless otherwise specified in the event Information Pack.
Breakfast is usually served from 08:00 to 08:45 and this is also the time to pack lunch. Dinner is usually served at 18:00 in the winter and 18:30 in the summer. You will be advised of any amendments to mealtimes at check in.
We strive to:
- Use local products including locally produced milk, yoghurt, cheese, meat, and bread;
- Use fresh ingredients and where possible seasonal ingredients including plenty of fruit and vegetables;
- Use healthy methods of cooking and offer balanced meals;
- Cater to food allergies and intolerances;
- Cook international dishes as well as traditional Swiss dishes; and
- Serve and enjoy meals in a traditional family style.
Food allergies and intolerances
Our Chalet’s kitchen facilities are operated by volunteer staff and all dietary requirements are catered for to the best of the Centre’s ability. We cannot guarantee food to be 100% free of any specific allergen. Guests with food allergies eat Our Chalet meals at their own risk.
Guests must notify Our Chalet of all dietary requirements at least two weeks in advance of their visit, or at the time of booking meals, whichever is earliest. Notification later than this may mean Our Chalet is not able to cater for the required special diet. In some cases special diet meals may be offered only at an additional cost. Guests with severe and/or contact allergies must note this on their Passenger Manifest and be aware that we cannot guarantee that other guests will not bring allergens on to the Our Chalet site.
Partially catered by Our Chalet
Guests staying on our campsite, in Squirrel House, or in Baby Chalet may be able to book some meals depending on availability. Meals must be booked in advance. There is less likely to be availability during the summer season when we are often fully booked.
All guests have the option to self-cater. Guests can pre-order some basic food items for purchase from Our Chalet. Please ask for our self-catering order form. Self-catering food order forms must be submitted at least two weeks in advance.
The nearest grocery store is in Adelboden, approximately a 45 to 60 minute walk from Our Chalet. Please note it is not open on Sundays, except for limited hours during the ski season. There is a small bakery at the Adelboden Oey bus stop, approximately a 20-30 min walk from Our Chalet. The bakery is not open on Sundays.
Guests staying on our campsite have the option to hire use of the Camp House kitchen as well as outdoor cooking equipment and patrol cooking boxes. Please note that the Camp House kitchen may be shared with other groups staying on the campsite.
If you have hired either the downstairs of Squirrel House or the whole house you will have access to a kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, fridge, and small freezer.
Main Chalet and Spycher House
Guests staying in Main Chalet have access to a small kitchenette with two microwaves, a small fridge, a sink, and tea and coffee making facilities.
Outside of the summer season a second kitchenette with stove top, refrigerator, kettle, and toaster is also usually available. Please note, this kitchenette is in our conference room and may not be available at all times.
Breakfast is served daily from 8.00 to 8.45 in the Dining Hall in Main Chalet. We serve a Swiss-style buffet including fresh bread, cheese, jam, a small selection of cereals, müesli, yoghurt, tinned fruit, fruit juice, coffee, hot chocolate, and tea.
If you need to leave before 08:15 on your departure day you can request a packed breakfast which you prepare after dinner the night before your departure. Please let our staff know at least 48 hours in advance if you would like a packed breakfast.
We do not offer lunch on-site, however you can book a packed lunch which you will need to prepare during breakfast time. There will be a table set with ingredients to make your packed lunch which includes sandwiches with a choice of fillings, a piece of fruit, and two snacks. Please bring your own sandwich box and water bottle. We do not provide plastic/Ziploc bags for your sandwiches.
Dinner is served at 18.00 or 18:30 depending on the season in the Dining Hall in Main Chalet. Dinner is a main course and a dessert. Please note we can only cater to special diets, including vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan, nut-free, etc., if we are notified of these in advance. Please give us as much notice as possible, ideally at least two weeks.
Unfortunately, dinners cannot be held for late arrivals. If you will be arriving after dinner time, please make your own arrangements for dinner keeping in mind that Adelboden village is approximately a 45-60 minute walk from Our Chalet.

Tea, coffee, and hot chocolate are available in the T-Bar in Main Chalet. We do not charge for these hot drinks but a donation to cover the costs of these items will be very much appreciated, please place these in the box provided.
