Humour – and especially the British take on it – is our recipe for lifting you out of the gloom of the grey foggy weather of everyday life. At The Bristol in Bern, you will not only be able to recuperate physically, but also mentally. Jokes and humour make up our wellness packages for the mind. Meaning that after a lengthy meeting or day at a trade fair in the Swiss capital, you can quickly wind down and recharge your batteries (and even add the odd sharp-tongued comment to your repertoire) before your next long day of business.
