Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & Spa
The Swiss capital of Bern is a UNESCO heritage site, characterised by its historic charm and cosmopolitan lifestyle. Guests staying at the Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & Spa will discover one of Europe’s most wonderful city escapes.
Where to begin in Bern? Perhaps in its historic origins, strolling through 12th century cobbled courtyards, ornate arches, exquisite facades and 15th century arcades. Visit the 800-year-old Zytglogge, Clock Tower and the Munster church, with Switzerland’s highest spire, you can climb 312 steps to a spectacular viewing platform.
Bern is a creative capital. Beneath the famous six kilometres of arcades you’ll find Bernese boutiques and independent ateliers. Artist Paul Klee is a renowned son of Bern, his work is exhibited in Zentrum, an extraordinary undulating monument by Renzo Piano.
The great Swiss outdoors is an inspiration all year. In summer simply splash into the River Aare and float down ‘the loop’ with the locals. In the winter the Gantrisch cross-country ski trails are less than an hour away, enjoy an invigorating burst of snowy Swiss exercise. Near to the city centre is Gurten Park where you can hike trails with spectacular mountain views.
For over 160 years, the Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & Spa has been the leading hotel in Switzerland’s capital city, hosting the world’s politicians. Through attentive refurbishments this eminent landmark has retained all the grand traditions of first-class travel with a contemporary flair.
Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & Spa provides an excellent choice of rendezvous. The Sky Terrace can be cosy for hot drinks and fondue, or cool for cocktails with a summer breeze. Jack’s Brasserie is a Bern institution, where discerning locals head to for Swiss seasonal dishes, and the cigar lounge is a mellow way to end dinner. Next day refresh in the five star Spa, simply the best therapy in Bern.
