People with disabilities are significantly involved in the manufacturing process.
We would highly recommend the Lebensart web shop: www.lebensart-shop.ch should you prefer to do your shopping from home.

HISTORY

Once a villa, then a department store and now your hotel and restaurant.

The Lebensart Foundation took over the vacated building at Schmiedengasse 20 in Burgdorf in 2012 and opened the Hotel & Restaurant Orchidee Burgdorf in the spring of 2013.The building, which was extensively remodelled at the time, looks back on a long and eventful history.

In 1865 a huge fire raged in the upper town, which left Schmiedengasse in ruins. A magnificent villa was later built at the current location. In the years 1959-1973 it became the Strauss department store. Shortly before the 100th anniversary in 2008, the department store, which at that time was already running under the name Manor, was closed.

We are delighted that you, dear guests, are filling this historic house with life.
