Bern is the capital of Switzerland and the BELLEVUE PALACE stands right next door to the Bundeshaus, or Federal Palace. With its miles of arcades and historic fountains, the old town of Bern is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site; of particular note is the Zytglogge astronomical clock created in 1530.
The official guesthouse of the Swiss government has been a place of living history for 150 years. In fact, the BELLEVUE PALACE is the only grand hotel in the heart of the capital. Its magnificent lounges, superb views of the Bernese Alps – always a ‘belle vue’ – and heartfelt hospitality make the luxury hotel unique. The hotel has always been, and remains, a venue for politicians and diplomats and a popular meeting place for the whole of Bern.
Situated in the historic old town, right next to the Government House, just a few steps to the shopping arcades and museums and a 5-minute walk from the Central Station. The closest international airports are in Basel (approximately one hour and fifteen minutes by car) and Zurich (approximately one and a half hours by car).
