Hotel Bären – Lenin was guest here

Wladimir Iljitsch Lenin participated in 1916 at the second international socialist conference the “Kienthal Conference” in the Hotel Bären. Here he greeted his followers and promoted his ideology. It was considered by the Swiss public as meeting of subversives and  revolutionaries. But in the former Soviet Union the meeting was recorded as historic event. In 1970 a Soviet stamp with a picture of the Hotel Bären appeared.
