Events & major occasions

From sporting events and cultural events to large-scale events - the central location is not the only argument in favour of Bern as an event location. The Bern Convention Bureau puts you in touch with the city's key players and provides support during the planning phase.

A climber in action, secured by a tense audience in a packed arena, conveys a dynamic and exciting atmosphere.

Sports event planned?

Anyone with a budget of at least CHF 50,000 will be supported by the Bern Sports Committee in submitting a licence and clarifying financial resources. Fill in the «Sports questionnaire» and we will get back to you.
