The Goldener Schlüssel (the Golden Key) Bern Hotel and Restaurant is the City of Bern’s oldest inn.
It’s history of over 500 years is still tangible today, inviting you in to wile away some time. The restaurant with its quirky wooden-arched ceiling provides a cosy Bern Old Town atmosphere - the perfect setting in which to enjoy our traditional Swiss cuisine. The rooms also offer the same comfort as the enchanting location in the middle of the Old Town.

Whether you want to experience the city and culture of Bern, or visit the capital on business, you are warmly invited to stay with us and enjoy yourself.

We look forward to your visit
