The hotel is one of the most prominent in Lucerne, with a superb lakeside position and just steps from the delights of the Old Town. The excellent transport network is also on your doorstep for trips to the mountains of Central Switzerland. Guests have enjoyed luxurious stays here for 175 years and the hotel is still owned by the 5th generation of the same family. It has also been honoured as the 'Best historic hotel in Europe'. The facilities are renowned and you will be sure to find an oasis of relaxation after your days out. The wellness area in the top floor of the hotel has views of the lake and Alps. There are two saunas, hydro-massage showers, high tech fitness facilities and a range of beauty treatments (payable locally).

The Pavilion restaurant serves à la carte international dishes and has an outdoor dining terrace in the warmer months, while the Galerie offers regional specialities. The Schweizerhof Bar is a popular evening meeting place with its elegant design, creative cocktails and live piano music.
