Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our places to stay in the canton of Bern include several on the fringe of the capital itself, but sadly none in the old city with its medieval streets and sheltering arcades.

 To the south of the capital is the Bernese Oberland, the region which can claim to have inspired the popular image of Switzerland, thanks to its towering mountains, including the Eiger, its nine deep valleys, thundering waterfalls and calm lakes such as Thun and Brienz. Although many of the ski resorts here are expensive, and attract the rich and famous, we have found several competitively priced small hotels for walkers and skiers.

 As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Bern offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses, restaurants with rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
