HISTORY

RENOWNED FOR OVER 150 YEARS – IN 2011 THE HOTEL SCHWEIZERHOF REOPENED IN NEW SPLENDOR.

The Hotel Schweizerhof, which was known as “Hotel Fetzer” or “Zähringerhof” in the 19th century, received its current name by Daniel Vogel in 1859. In 1911 the Hotel Schweizerhof was torn down, rebuilt and festively reopened in July 1913. In 1939 Jack Gauer took over the management of the prestigious hotel. In the following years the hotel was renovated repeatedly. In 2005 the hotel was closed for extensive refurbishments. A comprehensive, two-year renovation started in 2009. Today the Hotel Schweizerhof is part of the portfolio of Buergenstock Selection. With an over 150-year legacy, a glamorous new period has now begun at Berne’s famous luxury hotel.

This is the only way you can know exactly what room types are available for the dates you want, and the best possible rate, because you are dealing directly with the hotel.
