I Found a Personal Trainer in My Cupboard - Swissotel Kursaal Bern

Hi Everyone,

Last week I was lucky enough to experience one of the fabulous new Vitality suites in the Swissotel Kursaal Bern. My dear friend Fatima joined me which totally added to the fun. We also had the most magical evening in one of the Winter rooftop igloos.

Swissotel Kursaal Bern was opened in March 2021. With a whole new vitality and sustainability concept to the property. The coolest being when I found a personal trainer in my cupboard of course – haha. So great that I had to promise to take my hubby there too!

Introduction:

The Swissotel Kursaal Bern is situated on the hill just at the edge of Bern city centre so you have fabulous views over the rooftops and cathedral of Bern.

Just under one and a half hours drive from Zurich, there’s plenty of underground parking. Plus a tram and bus stop right outside the entrance which will take you into the centre. When you check in you receive a complementary transport card for the city of Bern.

Alternatively a 5 minute walk across the bridge will take you right into the centre of Bern.

Above you see the lounge area of our Vitality suite. As we walked in we saw a row of neat cupboards. However opening them to our fabulous surprise we found a hidden fitness centre. Just push one button on the TV screen and up pops the cutest personal trainer who easily showed us exactly how to use the different equipment and gave us fabulous, easy to understand exercises to do.

This has to be the coolest way out to stay fit whilst on vacation!!!
