Brunnen in der Stadt Bern

A warm welcome in Bern

The relaxed attitude of the Bernese is legendary. It might be just what you need in order to tackle an upcoming business challenge.

Even the best of companies has hectic moments at times. Stress and pressure have negative effects on our everyday life and our well-being. All the more reason not to miss out on relaxation and some time out, or miss the chance to go on a retreat or a fun-filled experience during your seminar, workshop or company outing. The canton of Bern has many varied options on offer, and our warm hospitality is guaranteed.


Switching off comes naturally here

With their down-to-earth and thoughtful approach to life, the Bernese excel in giving you a good time and warm hospitality. Soak up the intimate atmosphere in both the countryside and in the city. Short distances and first-class accessibility mean less hustle and bustle and more time to relax, especially during intensive business meetings. There is nowhere else where you can get away from it all so easily – and still stay relaxed. Examples include the Unesco World Heritage Site of the City of Bern and the Unesco World Heritage Site of the Bernese High Alps just one hour away. Switch off, relax, and take a deep breath.


Goals that are easy to achieve

Easily accessible from abroad by plane, train or car, you can stroll in a relaxed atmosphere through the arcades of Bern's beautiful Old Town. The Swiss capital is an ideal starting point as you and your team can reach the amazing Bernese mountain regions from here in about an hour. Marvel at the mountain panorama on a trip with the BLS or Jungfrau Railways and enjoy a break amid the beauty of nature. If you’re looking for a wider perspective after your meeting, the GurtenHarder or Gelmer cable cars will take you to new heights within ten minutes. And on the Pfingstegg or at Lake Oeschinen you even have the chance to race back downhill on the toboggan run as you rapidly achieve your recreational goals.


Insider tips, impressive and inviting

In the untouched Haslital, natural highlights await you and your team: The Reichenbach Valley with its 120-metre-high waterfall and the wildly romantic Rosenlaui with its impressive gorge. The Schwarzwaldalp and the Grimsel and Susten area also boast many magnificent panoramas and – on an entertaining power plant tour for example – there are fascinating insights to be had. The Ballenberg open-air museum is the perfect place to relax and enjoy. Together with your team you can learn old handicraft techniques, stroll through historic gardens and kitchens or make a miracle balm with the Ballenberg druggists and much more.
