Guest review score

6.6 from 37 reviews

Buffet breakfast is included in the room rate, In Celtic times, Salodurum was a fortified town, but it was only in the tenth century – after Roman domination and Alemannic invasion – that Solothurn rediscovered some stability. With the demise of the Zähringen dynasty in 1218, the city’s finest expanded their territory to form a buffer zone sitting comfortably between the mighty Bern on one side and equally mighty Basel on the other. As a separate canton, Solothurn joined the Swiss Confederation in 1481. In the decades following, despite the turmoil of the Reformation all around, Solothurn remained Catholic and so, in 1530, was chosen by the Catholic ambassadors of the King of France as their place of residence. For more than 250 years, the French ambassadors lived in Solothurn, overseeing the town’s redevelopment in the contemporary Baroque style. Some destruction followed the 1798 revolution, but a great deal of Solothurn’s graceful Old Town has survived. These days it’s a lively, cosmopolitan place, with thriving industry, which is watchmaking and precision manufacturing figure large, and a curiously varied mixture of ethnicities on its streets. It’s an easy day trip – or overnight stay – from Bern, with a couple of spectacular Baroque churches, a very worthwhile art gallery, and a high viewpoint nearby for breezy walks. The Hotel the hotel enjoys a central yet quiet location in Biel, highly valued, close to the city park, and offers you en-suite rooms, fine cuisine and free wireless internet access, 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. All the rooms feature a mini bar and a satellite TV and there is also a beautiful garden and a coin laundry at your disposal in the the hotel hotel, 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., To the east of Bern, a blissfully bucolic region of farmhouses and dairies, undulating hills and peaceful villages, spreads through and around the Emmental, the valley, which is tal, of the River Emme. Somehow or other, despite the presence of a show dairy and the region’s prominent place in the hearts of the rurally minded, cheese-loving Swiss, the Emmental has managed to escape heavy tourist development. It’s a wonderful place for long country walks or bike rides. To the north, generic suburban prosperity quietly covers the land as far as the dignified old city of Solothurn, capital of its own canton – a fact which rather awkwardly forced tourist offices to recently rename the Berner Mittelland as the “Schweizer Mittelland”, in deference to non-Bernese sensibilities., To the west and south, the Mittelland merges into the lakeside country of Canton Fribourg and the Broye, with the extremely attractive and much overlooked city of Fribourg set in gorgeous countryside southwest of Bern on the French–German language border., Bern was founded in 1191 by Berchtold V, Duke of Zähringen, and named for the unfortunate bear, which is bärn in local dialect, that was his first hunting victim. The bear remains the mascot of the city today. Bern was devastated by fire in 1405 and rebuilt in today's sandstone, as opposed to the wood that was originally used. Once an important city-state during the medieval era, Bern lost territory in the 1798 French invasion. When the new Swiss Confederation came to life in 1848, Bern was an unthreatening choice for a capital. Geneva was too French, Zürich too German, Bern just right., The giant Canton Bern is one of the country’s largest, taking in a swathe of diverse countryside from snowy Alpine peaks to gently rolling farmland. The north of the canton is focused around the small city of Bern itself, Switzerland’s low-key and attractive federal capital. With a grand and glorious history at the fulcrum of Swiss history, Bern has often dominated the economic and political fortunes of the populated west-central heartland – or Mittelland – of the country. This arc of territory stretching from the Lake Geneva shores to Zürich holds, and has always held, the most fertile country, the densest population, and the greatest wealth of all the diverse areas of Switzerland. The Reformation may have begun in Zürich, and flourished in Geneva, but it was the Bernese army that seized hearts and minds in the countryside between the two. For centuries after the Burgundian wars, the patrician nobility of Bern controlled a wealthy city-state covering the entire Mittelland; it was only a French-backed revolution in 1798 that saw Bern stripped both of its Lake Geneva breadbasket, which is carved out to form Canton Vaud, and the rolling farmland of the north, which is Canton Aargau, . Nonetheless, Bern was a natural choice for Swiss federal capital under the 1848 constitution, and with overwhelming economic and political clought, Bern can still to this day call the shots in its home region.
