The Furmeet Bern is Switzerland’s second casual open meet and greet within the Swiss furry fandom. Since its inception in 2015, it has taken place in various restaurants in Bern until it moved to a privately owned location in 2019, which we lovingly call “Bärenhöhle” (bear cave). The Furmeet Bern usually takes place two weeks after the Stammi ZH, but also has occasional additional openings. Because the location is private, fursuiting is allowed and also encouraged. Otherwise, people come together to draw, to play boardgames, to dance and generally to have fun. Occasionally, there are also events preceding the Furmeet, like a gaming or drawing afternoon or a visit at the zoo.
The meets take place two weeks after the Stammi ZH. Occasionally, there are also additional openings, which are announced in our Bärenhöhle openings Telegram channel or on our website. You may also find events on here.
What are the rules for the meet?
There are certain general rules in place applicable for all Bern events. Please note that specific events might have some additional restrictions etc.
Are there any age restrictions?
Yes, participation is restricted to people above the age of 16, as we are a privately hosted event.
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, dogs are allowed but they should stay in the Chillout/Lounge room as it is more calm and suitable for dogs. If the dog is stressed out or shows bad behavior towards the guest, it will not be allowed any further.
Is Fursuiting allowed?
Because it is a private location, fursuiting is allowed and even encouraged. However, please remain indoors while wearing the fursuit because of the neighbours.
