The vibrant hotel of the Swiss government with a history extending back over 100 years, The Bellevue Palace is the only grand hotel in the heart of the capital. Guests have included royalty, history's most eminent international statesmen and leading figures from the world of sport and entertainment. Built in 1913, the Bellevue Palace is a jewel of Art Nouveau architecture. Its location and history are as unique as it's panoramic "belle vue" of the Bernese Alps and River Aare.
The magnificent salons are decorated in a traditional style with all the modern comforts, where sparkling chandeliers and gilt combine with high-tech infrastructure. All 128 rooms, including 24 suites, are stylishly appointed with elegant furniture, state-of-the-art technology and stunning views.
Experience fine dining the Restaurant Vue: great classic dishes are reinvented by Chef Gregor Zimmermann. The Bellevue Bar has always been a meeting place for politicians and diplomats, it featured in John le Carré's spy novels, and it is also a spot for a late night dinner. Enjoy one of the many select wines together with exquisite delicacies. And, weather permitting, why not enjoy the stunning views of the Bernese Alps from the restaurant's own terrace with a glass of champagne or a fine single malt. The Bellevue is also a well-respected destination for Sunday brunch and afternoon tea in elegant surroundings.
A rooftop finish sauna and well equipped gym with stunning views over the city are enough to encourage more than a passing visit. Keen shoppers will be delighted to learn that shopping expeditions begin under Bern's famous arcades right in front of the hotel.
