Review of the Papieri-Fäscht

The second Papieri Festival, which took place in September 2023, once again attracted numerous visitors and residents. It was the first true neighborhood festival.

People of all ages gathered on Papieri-Platz and in Maschinengasse. In addition to the «Open Studios» of the Papieri businesses, food stands and a catering areas invited people to linger. Live bands, DJs, and exciting talks hosted by Thomy Jeker entertained the crowd on stage.

There was also plenty for the little ones to discover: games and fun at the Paper Plane Playground, the giant slide, or bounce houses, as well as craft activities.

Culinary delights at Papieri-Platz

From 2026, the fire will burn again in the landmark of the Papieri area.  The Segmüller Collection is expanding its portfolio of unique gastronomy concepts such as Carlton, Loft Five, Roof Garden or Sablier into the Papieri area.  A restaurant with grill, bar and lounge brings trendy casual dining to Cham.  Where steam boilers used to be heated, a culinary delight awaits guests in the future.  The experienced family business places great value on warm service, seasonal offers and high quality.  We look forward to culinary highlights in the Papieri Kesselhaus!

In summer, the Kesselhaus expands outside: just like in the beer garden, you can enjoy the sun, the fresh air and the view of Papieri-Platz.  The ideal meeting point.

The opening is planned for spring 2026.
