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. Enjoy la BELLE VIE at BELLEVUE PALACE.
The BELLEVUE PALACE has 128 rooms, 24 of which are suites. These hideaways for individuals are classically elegant yet fitted with every modern amenity. At this luxury five-star hotel, the stage is set for a grand appearance. The restaurant «VUE» is the number one destination for gourmets in Bern, while journalists, politicians, guests of the state and couples too can enjoy cocktails and culinary delights at the «BELLEVUE Bar» and «Le LOBBY».
For those who appreciate the more discreet approach, the BELLEVUE PALACE also has 12 function rooms for special events and banquets. Meanwhile the exclusive BELLEViE GYM and Spa on the 5th floor enables guests to top up their fitness levels or relax in a Finnish sauna.
The BELLEVUE PALACE opened as the Hotel Bellevue in 1865. After a full conversion, it reopened in 1913 before experiencing its first heyday during the 1920s. The Swiss National Bank acquired the BELLEVUE PALACE in 1976, handing over the property to the Swiss Confederation in 1994.
The only grand hotel in Bern with a long-standing tradition is therefore owned by the state; as the official hotel for guests of the state, and the hotel of choice for numerous celebrities, politicians and diplomats, it possesses a unique flair.

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 BärenPark is the symbol of a city with a broad cultural heritage that includes the Zentrum Paul Klee. In the summer, the recreation area along the banks of the River Aare is ideal for strolling, jogging and swimming. The environs of Bern open onto the Emmental valley and the Schwarzenburger District, one of the loveliest pre-alpine landscapes in Switzerland.
The restaurant «VUE» combines traditional Swiss hospitality with classically modern cuisine.
