Intro

With a spectator capacity of 17,000 seats, the PostFinance Arena – the largest ice stadium in Switzerland and one of the largest halls in Europe – attracts numerous visitors to Bern.

Opened in 1967 as an open ice arena, the stadium was covered in 1969 with an eye towards the upcoming World Ice Hockey Championship.

HRS Real Estate Bern AG was commissioned to renovate the stadium from 2007 - 2009. As an additional challenge, during the reconstruction and completion the match activities of the SCB had to be guaranteed in time for the Ice Hockey World Championships in 2009.

Besides the focus on improving the infrastructure and security, the building was enlarged by adding 7,500m2 of office and service space for Swiss Post and enhanced by the addition of a ground-level outdoor area and an underground training hall.

Of special note is the huge standing room grandstand with a capacity of 10,422 people - the world's largest in a hockey stadium.

Wedding

After dusk, the arena facade lights up in the colour of your choice, creating a magical atmosphere. Bridal couples not only love the exclusive wedding location with a sporty touch, its architecture and unique rooms, but also its professional, tailor-made service, guaranteeing an occasion to remember.

Venue

The Sportgastro Corporation is your hospitality partner for events and receptions of all sorts in our newly renovated PostFinance Arena. You have a choice of five restaurants, several luxurious sky boxes and a large modern and stylish lounge. Modern architecture, diversity and flexibility await you. Everything is possible – from everyday business and banquets to big events with 30,000 visitors (like for example the Hockey World Championship 2009).
