One thing is clear: the best ideas seldom come up at the office! However, when teams hold their meetings at a seminar hotel in the Bern Region they find that the inspiration flows freely.
These hotels not only provide the necessary infrastructure for successful meetings, but they also boast a unique scenic environment, an exciting atmosphere and original supporting programmes for groups. And of course the highlight in the evening – unforgettable cuisine to celebrate a successful seminar day.
Hotel Moosegg, Emmental
Whether in the seminar room with its view of the picturesque Emmental or in the nearby cheese dairy, the Hotel Moosegg provides the perfect setting for a successful brainstorming session. In the evening, the view extends as far as the twinkling stars in the Emmental sky. And, of course, there is the passion with which hosts Nicole and Daniel Lehmann pamper their guests: She meticulously takes care of their needs while he cooks some of the most delicious regional dishes – and no wonder, for he was once a member of the national cooking team and, this year, VIP chef at the World Ski Championships in St. Moritz.
If you and your team are looking to take in the city air, the Kursaal in the Swiss capital is the place to be. This conference centre is Switzerland's leading address for conventions and meetings. And do not forget its culinary delights, for the fine dining Restaurant Meridiano with its 17 Gault Millau points and one Michelin star is the city’s most highly awarded restaurant. The highlight is the "Ächt Schwiz" evening menu: Chef Fabian Raffeiner has visited regional farms and producers and created a culinary ode to their tasty, sustainable products. A culinary treat indeed!
Hotel Kemmeriboden Bad, Schangnau
Swiss tradition can be so very inspiring: At the Hotel Kemmeriboden Bad in Schangnau in the Emmental, the seminars are held in a typical wooden building in which a blend of tradition and zeitgeist is felt throughout. The menu features such world-famous local specialities as Emmental cheese and the "Merangge". These are served with imaginative dishes – all local of course, because the hotel is an Ämmitaler Ruschtig licensee, with a seal of approval for genuine regional products.
Hotel Ambassador, Bern
This quiet business hotel near the Bern Zoo is dedicated to Japanese culture. The modern seminar rooms come with such names as Tokyo and Yokohama, and the delightful menu features Japanese specialities. And does it ever! The Hotel Ambassador has Bern's first teppanyaki restaurant. And teams especially appreciate the way in which, as diners look on, the Japanese chef prepares fresh vegetables, tender Wagyu beef and Canadian lobster tails with plenty of show talent. A seminar here is sure to be an unforgettable experience!
The magnificent halls in the Castle Münchenwiler near Murten – where the monks of Cluny once lived – are the perfect location for a business meeting. And in the secluded park with the redwoods and the old herb garden you will find the necessary peace and concentration with which to brainstorm the next business idea. In the evening you can practice archery by torchlight, taste a whisky and enjoy the feudal joys of the "menu du château" surrounded by masonry that is nearly one thousand years old. Oxtail soup, wild mushroom terrine, tarte tatin!
Landgasthof & Seminarhotel Lueg, Kaltacker
At an altitude of 887 metres, the Lueg offers a superb view over the rolling Emmental hills, and as far as the Bernese Alps and the Jura mountains. If you are looking for bright ideas and solutions, you are guaranteed inspiration at this cosy country inn with its pretty meeting rooms or when out walking along the nearby routes marked on the hotel’s hiking map. Seminar participants are pampered according to all the rules of the art in the Gourmet-Stübli. And if you like, enjoy a fine Cohiba in the Avo Cigar Lounge afterwards.
