From the waterfront promenades you gaze out at a dazzling blue lake and the awe-inspiring Alps beyond. Behind you the sun-warmed plazas, covered bridges and lovely medieval old town await. Lucerne can almost be seen as the capital of the luxury city escape.
History, art and awe-inspiring scenery – all the ingredients for a dream city break.
Things to do
Stroll the 14th-century Kapellbrücke that spans the river Reuss and marvel at the famous octagonal water tower. The Museum Sammlung Rosengart is one of many must-see attractions, with its remarkable array of Picasso, Cezanne, Klee, and Miro works.
From the lofty location of your luxury hotel, you can gaze out on the beauty of the Lucerne canton and its alpine views. A funicular railway takes you straight to the breezy lakeside. Lucerne can be savoured throughout the seasons, from the flower-filled spring and warm summer months to the golden days of autumn.
There are so many incredible things to see from your exclusive resort that it can be difficult to choose. Take an exciting Zeppelin trip from Lucerne Buochs airfield and you will enjoy the finest views of several great local peaks – the Stanserhorn, Mts Rigi, Pilatus and Titlis – in one extraordinary flight.
Fancy a true local delicacy? Try the irresistible Lucerne pear bread.
