Covid certificate obligation
From 13 September 2021 and probably until 24 January 2022, the extended certificate obligation will apply in Switzerland. In this context, we have decided to introduce a general certificate obligation in our hotel. This means that all guests aged 16 and over must show us a valid Swiss or EU Covid certificate together with an ID card on arrival. Thank you in advance for having this ready.
We hope for your understanding, that without a certificate, it is no longer possible to stay overnight with us.

Rooms with A/C (Air Cooling)
The Hotel Belvedere is the first hotel in the Bernese Oberland to offer Air Conditioning in all rooms. The cooling system uses cold water from an underground source to cool the air. This avoids the use of power-intensive generators and thanks to that the air-cooling system fits in very well with the hotel’s sustainability philosophy.
