Why not plan your next team event at a castle, down in a cellar, or up on a mountain top for a change? These unique locations in Canton Bern are certain to surprise your team like never before!
Blending style and history
The Granary (Kornhauskeller) in the very heart of the City of Bern is one of the most unusual function rooms, with a capacity for up to 700 guests (or 500 guests for banquets). With its spacious architecture this historic cellar is fascinating for its stylishly appointed function room, pillars, and cross-vaulted ceiling. The bar and lounge areas arranged as side galleries provide an inviting setting for pre- and after-dinner drinks. From the balconies circling the large hall, there are stunning views down below and to the central staircase, revealing a genuinely sumptuous atmosphere that lends every function its own distinctively historic and festive note.
The elegant place to be
Located at just over 1,000 metres above sea level, Gstaad offers exciting hiking trails as well as some extremely appealing venues. If you’re looking for stylish and exclusive surroundings for you and your group of guests, the Gstaad Palace is definitely the perfect choice, as it has been for many for over a century. Indeed, the 5-star hotel is the ideal ‘p(a)lace to be’, with a choice of five conference rooms, each with its own distinctive ambiance. Each room is equipped with Wi-Fi, state-of-the-art technology, and a high-tech light & sound system – with extremely stylish furnishings and fittings for meetings, banquets or conferences, to suit whatever you have in mind. The hotel has its own event manager to hand to offer you help and assistance at every step, from the planning stage right through to your stay at the hotel.
Glacier ice and snowfields
Top of Europe: top of it all, and top of its game. Those are the words that probably best describe the offer available at the Jungfraujoch. The train from the Kleine Scheidegg takes you and your team up to Europe’s highest railway station at 3,454 metres above sea level. What comes next is a journey through time and perennial ice, wind, and weather. On one side, the sight of the Aletsch Glacier and its own four-thousand-metre summits; on the other, in fine weather, views to the Vosges mountains in the far distance. So why not seize this opportunity of snow and ice and enjoy the Jungfrau panorama, the fascinating Ice Palace inside the mountain, and the atmospheric experience tour. And if you’re looking for even more thrills, the Snow Fun Park and the Aletsch Glacier hike are guaranteed to set your pulse racing.
Since time immemorial, grand and magnificently ornate stately rooms have always inspired us to new ideas and visions. Münchenwiler Castle near Lake Morat is situated in spacious grounds and ideally suited for conferences and seminars with a special flair. It’s the perfect spot for you and your team to work on ingenious strategies as you make use of these peaceful castle premises with their modern furnishings to plan your future targets. With a capacity for up to 120 people the castle is able to accommodate all sorts of group and team events within its time-honoured walls. Once your event is over, why not enjoy seasonal menus that cater for every taste at the Castle’s own restaurant. And should your event last more than a day, there are rooms available at the nearby guest house for rest and relaxation.
Stepping up the charm
Stufenbau Ittigen certainly does justice to its German name, which roughly translates as ‘stepped building’, offering a wide variety of possible uses. As befits the architecture, the premises are ideally designed at every level to accommodate any type of event. With a capacity of up to 600 guests it easily accommodates large corporate functions as well as anniversaries featuring music accompaniment. Planning to stage an international conference or keen to capitalise on the close proximity to Switzerland’s capital? Or are you looking for a special venue for your next seminar or product launch?
