Hotel Des Alpes, Lucerne
Why this hotel? An historic hotel with great views

Open all year

Located in one of the oldest buildings on the Reuss riverbank - parts of which date from the 16th century - the Des Alpes has a superb position in Lucerne with a view of the Chapel Bridge & Mount Pilatus. Your breakfast is a delightful affair and will set you up for a day's sightseeing. While there are plenty of eateries nearby, we recommend guests enjoy a meal at the hotel's modern Quaiterrasse restaurant. There is also a bar and the team at the historic Des Alpes even craft their own beer - well worth trying during your stay. Head up to the 1st floor balcony for great views over the river and beyond. Rooms are cosy and all in all the hotel makes for a great base for your Lucerne holiday. 

Dinner à la carte.
