Kornhaus (Granary) Review
Wine stocked the cellar and grain filled the top three floors of this granary for 100 years during Bern's Golden Age. Then the 1814 Vienna Congress separated the city from its territories, and this monumental Baroque storage depot lost its function overnight. The cellar was renovated in 1893 and painted four years later; today it houses a restaurant. The Kornhausforum (Media and Design Center) organizes contemporary design, architecture, video, photography, and applied art exhibits upstairs.
