into life at the Grand Casino Bern

From the beginning up to the present day

The history of the Grand Casino Bern

How long has the casino been a giant of the Bern entertainment scene?

Switzerland’s first casino opened in Saxon-Les-Bains already back in 1854. The Grand Casino Bern opened its doors in April 2002, as one of seven class-A casinos in Switzerland. For the casino’s tenth anniversary, the existing casino floor was extended by almost half to roughly 1,500 square metres. At the same time, the range of games on offer was expanded as well, and the entrance area was given a redesign.

Stylish surrounds, a unique design, an attractive range of games and fascinating lighting displays add a touch of Las Vegas magic for guests at the Grand Casino Bern – very much in keeping with the historic Kursaal Bern building and its impressive chandelier-lit hall.
