The Kursaal Bern is the largest conference complex and event venue throughout the entire Bern region. It comprises no fewer than 23 spacious rooms (accommodating up to 1400 persons) equipped with the most modern infrastructure and state-of-the-art technology. And it offers the ideal setting for a wide range of events – from congresses and concerts to banquets, balls and product presentations. Our most prestigious venue is the Arena, with its hydraulic stage, impressive glass front and views extending far beyond Bern to the distant Alps. Eminent international figures -– leading statesmen, sports stars. Politicians and performers – have all made memorable appearances here. The Arena never fails to lend that «something special» to events of importance; it is the stylish setting for countless cultural highlights (such as Bern's International Jazz Festival and the Prix de Piano).

Thanks also to its ideal location in the heart of Switzerland, the "new look" Kursaal Bern will be the perfect venue for national and international events of excellence for up to 1400 participants. The Kursaal Bern can claim more than a century of history and tradition, and through the years has lost none of its splendour and sparkle.

The Kursaal Bern is an essential element of the Swiss capital. And as much a part of local life as the Houses of Parliament, the stately city Cathedral or the rolling River Aare. It is an attraction in its own right. And as unique as the exceptional views it offers of the city's historic old town, recognized by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage. With farsighted vision, our management has succeeded in establishing the reputation of the Kursaal far beyond the borders of Bern. Today it is a preferred venue for encounters and events of international acclaim. We embrace all the best of Bernese hospitality under one roof – trendy lifestyle, three speciality restaurants, the largest congress and culture centre in the entire region and the city's first gambling casino. And, as always, service with a smile.
