Berner Oberland Nightlife



Kursaal Review

Meaning the public room at a resort, the Kursaal is surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds between the Höheweg and the River Aare. Built in 1859 in a dramatic combination of Oberland-chalet and Victorian styles, it was renovated in 1968 and has become once again a social focal point for the city. Plays and concerts are presented here, mostly during the high season and sometimes in the new concert hall, completed in 2010. Folklore evenings are held in the adjoining Spycher (storehouse).
