Guest review score

8 from 307 reviews

Offering the perfect venue for seminars, very much appreciated, cocktails and banquets, for groups of 10-50 people, Hotel Au Lac boasts a splendid view over the Alps and Lake Geneva, Around Bern, the lush hills and tidy, picturesque farming communities of the Berner Mittelland hold plenty of rustic charm, not least in the Emmental region to the east., which is The Berner Oberland, or Bernese Alps, in the south of the canton, has its own chapter., Two cities near Bern well worth making time for are Solothurn to the north, and the much-overlooked town of Fribourg to the southwest. Discover the charm of Ouchy's lakeside promenades, highly valued, parks and gardens, surrounded by Alpine splendour and only a few steps from the Olympic Museum at this stunning lake front hotel, Every Swiss values his or her home canton above all the others, but the Bernese seem to be able to draw on a particularly deep wellspring of nationalistic pride in celebrating their own identity, culture and language. They’re famous around the country for their slow, deliberate manner, and you’ll pick up a sing-song tone in the lethargic Bernese dialect of Swiss-German that sparks inevitable associations with Welsh or Texan accents of English. Parallels with Wales or Texas don’t stop at language: like them, Bern – once an independent state – is now bound into a larger polity but has a relatively static, self-assured population who tend to feel little affinity with the people over the border. Luzerners and Fribourgeois are strangers, with whom the Bernese share a nationality but neither a cultural nor a religious identity. The slow-talking Bernese traditionally decry Zürchers for being big-city hotheads, and Baslers and Genfers for being snobs – and the compliment is returned, with the Bernese dismissed as hair-splitting dullards. Located on the shores of Lake Geneva, and above all, Hotel Au Lac is ideal for business and leisure trips; it is just 10 minutes away from the city centre and railway station, and Geneva's international airport is just 40 minutes away, You can get information on the whole Mittelland region from the Schweizer Mittelland tourist office, which is based in the same offices as Bern tourist office, in Bern’s main train station, which is 031/328 12 28, www.smit.ch, . They have plenty of contacts with companies running multi-day adventure packages in the area, and can put together any kind of itinerary covering hikes or long-distance cycling or inline skating on the hundreds of trails through the Mittelland, often throwing in extras to tempt you, such as canoeing on the Aare. A two-day package including riding, hiking and a night in a farmhouse costs from Fr.223, a canoe weekend from Fr.159, and a five-day cycling trip through the Emmental from Fr.535, including half board for four nights., Just outside the eastern city limits of Bern rises the Bantiger mountain, which is 947m, ; behind it stretches the EMMENTAL, a quintessentially Swiss landscape of peaceful, vibrantly green hills dotted with happily munching brown cows, sleepy rustic hamlets and isolated timber-built dairies. This is where Emmental cheese, which is the one with the holes, originates. A local nineteenth-century clergyman-writer celebrated the sturdiness and moral rectitude of Emmentaler dairy farmers in a series of famous novels under the pseudonym Jeremias Gotthelf; since then the place has gathered to itself an atmosphere of earnest rural stability and honesty. The salt-of-the-earth locals have the reputation of being the most reliable, the most sensible, the most Swiss of all the Swiss – a reputation which, in a distasteful modern turnaround, has been exploited by politicians: the extreme right-wing SVP party has recently begun to expand out of its traditional base in Luzern to make significant gains in the Emmental countryside on a tide of anti-immigration, anti-foreigner, anti-EU rhetoric., Aside from Geneva in the southwest and a fragment of Canton Valais in the southeast, this is all Canton Vaud, which is pronounced voh, . In 1536, Bern’s army swept down from the north, implanting the Reformation and placing the whole area under bailiffs; just over two centuries later, in a 1798 revolution backed by France, Vaudois freedom-fighters won control of the Bernese lakeside estates and agricultural heartland. Napoleon put his seal on the deed by formally creating a new canton out of the territory, which duly joined the Swiss Confederation in 1803 under a green-and-white flag which still flies in towns and villages to this day bearing the words “Liberté et Patrie”. The ambience of the region is thoroughly Gallic: historical animosity towards Catholic France has given way to a yearning on the part of most urban francophone Swiss to abandon their heel-dragging compatriots in the more stolid east and embrace the EU. The short train-ride from the Swiss-German cities of the Mittelland crosses more than just a linguistic boundary – it seems to span a whole continent of attitude, The comparisons with San Francisco don’t stop at the gorgeous setting. If Switzerland has a counterculture, it lives in the clubs and cafés of Lausanne, a fact which – odd though it seems – lies broadly within the city’s long tradition of fostering intellectual and cultural innovation. From medieval times, Lausanne has stood at the Swiss cultural avant-garde. Back then, the cathedral crowned the city the most influential of the region; it still sits resplendant on an Old Town hill, the country’s most impressive Gothic monument. After the Reformation, students flocked to Lausanne’s pioneering university, and in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, restless Romantics sought and found inspiration in the setting and the life of Lausanne. It remains a grand-looking city, full of shuttered foursquare mansions and ritzy shopping streets, and with its own glamorous lakeside resort of Ouchy; but, despite the looks, there are few cities in Europe that so actively value and support the pleasure principle. For decades, the municipality has generously subsidized art and culture of all shades, resulting in a range of festivals, live music, clubs, theatre, opera and dance to rival a more sluggish metropolis ten times bigger than 300,000-strong Lausanne. It would be an exaggeration to say you could find anything you wanted in Lausanne, but the happy combination of a long tradition of cultural experimentation, open and willing audiences and chunky public subsidies gives the city’s arts and entertainment a refreshing breadth., Emmentaler architecture is distinctive, the local timber-built inns and dairies crowned by huge roofs with overarching eaves, ringed by wooden balconies, and encrusted with rows of tiny windows, each with its window box and neatly tied-back set of net curtains. Emmentaler cooking, featuring cheese or cream with everything, is renowned around the country, and in 1999, some forty local inns and restaurants got together to regulate the quality of cuisine on offer in the region. All forty of these establishments now offer – among other dishes – the Ämmitaler Ruschtig Menü, a gut-busting four-course blowout for a standard Fr.46: from Beeri Schämpis, which is sparkling berry wine,, and a cheese salad served with the local Züpfe plaited bread, it takes in soup with whipped cream, and Chlepfer Ännis Schwynsschnitzu, which is pork escalope in cream sauce, with creamy mashed potatoes and vegetables,, then moves on to Meielis Merängge Gschlaber, which is fresh meringue with whipped cream, ice cream and caramelized cream,, before rounding it, which is and you, off with Schnapps-laced coffee. Consult the Bäregg association, CH-3552 Bärau, which is 034/409 37 11,, or local tourist offices, for details of the full list of Ämmitaler Ruschtig establishments.
