Hammam & Spa Oktogon Bern

Unique architecture

In the Bern hammam, Bernese architectural history meets Middle Eastern influences. The Bern hammam is built on the foundations of the first gas boiler, which was created in the 19th century. The original designers opted for an eight-sided layout – hence the name ‘Oktogon’ (octagon).

A spa experience over four storeys

The Hammam & Spa Oktogon Bern builds on this, resulting in a unique hammam combining historic architectural surroundings with Middle Eastern influences. Enjoy a unique spa experience over four storeys: the central area lies beneath a 13-metre-high dome and is home to the warm relaxation spa. The other rooms can be found in the galleries above – open-plan architecture that also offers a sense of refuge and a safe haven.

A piece of the East in Bern

The hammam is a compelling blend of sophisticated European architecture and original Middle Eastern masterpieces. A Middle Eastern dream in the heart of Bern – the perfect getaway from everyday stress.
