Shopping with flair

A weekend of shopping in Bern is a special experience – after all, the arcades in the historic Old Town are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The six kilometres of covered shopping promenade are home to stylish boutiques, quirky antiques dealers and well-stocked wine shops. And, luckily, The Bristol is located directly in the city centre, which means you won’t have to carry all your shopping bags too far.

From the breakfast table to the shops

Both Bern and The Bristol have a lot to offer for offline shoppers. After a hearty breakfast, it’s just a short stroll over to the main shopping streets. And for those who prefer shopping online (or not at all): the bar at The Bristol Lounge opens at 11.30 a.m. and, thanks to its super-fast Internet, is the perfect place to make a last-minute restaurant reservation or plan a trip to a museum.

Treat yourself in the weeks before Christmas

A break during the Advent season

Christmas shopping is fun if you’re not rushing to get it all done, but rather you have plenty of time to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones. After a day of shopping, you can relax in a room at The Bristol or start your evening off right with a drink and a snack in The Bristol Lounge.

For all eventualities


Extra service

Our guests benefit not only from The Bristol’s perfect location close to the train station in Bern’s Upper Old Town, but also from Globus’ concierge service. The upmarket Swiss department store is situated right next to the hotel. The Globus team is there for you – whether you forgot to pick up a souvenir for your mother-in-law, need to have some gifts wrapped, or want to schedule an appointment with a personal shopper.
