Choose a luxury hotel in Switzerland with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to discover a perfectionist of a country, blending the very best of the urban and the outdoor. Cultured cities with medieval flair and progressive art punctuate lyrical landscapes of snow-capped peaks and jewel-coloured lakes.
Luxury city breaks in Switzerland
Naturally beautiful (and beautifully efficient) Zürich takes you from Dada art to decadent Art Nouveau chocolatiers. Be captivated, as Goethe was, by the sparkling lake views and medieval covered bridges in Lucerne, or Art Brut ‘outsider art’ in French-speaking Lausanne. The rainbow-kissed Jet d'Eau Fountain rises high in cosmopolitan Geneva, home base of the UN and Switzerland's chicest boutiques. Michelin-starred chefs serve up innovative Swiss cuisine drawing on influences from neighbouring France.
Luxury mountain holidays in Switzerland
The Alps slide romantically by as your train glides up to Wengen, perched above the Lauterbrunnen Valley's wispy waterfalls and beneath the glaciated summit of the Jungfrau. The birthplace of winter tourism, St Moritz is as fashionable now as when the Victorians first skied here. If walking boots are more your style, Kandersteg's jagged peaks beckon. Reward yourself at the end of a hike with a champagne fondue in a luxury mountaintop chalet.
Luxury Swiss lakeside escapes
From genteel Lucerne, boats cruise the fjord-like lake, ringed by mythical peaks that inspired Turner's brush, Twain's pen and the William Tell legend. Pick a boutique hotel in Switzerland on Lake Geneva's shores to taste crisp white Dézaleys in the Lavaux vineyards and marvel at fairytale fortress Château de Chillon. Palm-wreathed Lake Lugano serves up pristine Alpine scenery with a pinch of Italian sunshine.
Whether you want to gaze out across Lake Geneva from an elegant château or wake up to a fresh blanket of snow in a boutique chalet in the Bernese Oberland, Small Luxury Hotels of the World has a luxury Swiss hotel with your name on it.
