Stay at the Hotel Schweizerhof Bern. After a recent renovation, the hotel retains its history with foundations dating back to 1859. The elegant original features are combined with contemporary design and state-of-the-art additions to make for a 5-star stay.
The Schweizerhof offers 99 rooms and suites with views over Bern or the quiet courtyard. The hotel also houses a 500m2 spa with a gym, multiple saunas, a pool, hammam and five treatment rooms in an underground space that was a jazz club before the renovation. Eat at Jack’s Brasserie for Schweizerhof’s famous schnitzel. After a meal indoors, follow with a drink on the Sky Terrace offering views of Bern. Look out for the beehives on the roof that produce organic honey for use in the hotel!
