Bern’s secret is its relaxed atmosphere – perhaps due to the Swiss capital’s compact size, its unique charm, or to its combination of visionary architecture and medieval Old Town; Bern is a UNESCO World Heritage Property and thanks to its 6 kilometres of arcades – the locals refer to them as ‘Lauben’ – it is one of the longest weather-sheltered shopping promenades in Europe.

In any case: state-of-the-art facilities and a central location make Bern the ideal place for any function.
