Bürgenstock Hotels & Resort, Lake Lucerne, with a legendary History
The idea of a luxury hotel on the Bürgenberg mountain on Lake Lucerne originated in the second half of the 19th century. This was in the wake of the increasing popularity of mountaineering and the beginnings of spa tourism in Switzerland. In 1873 Franz Josef Bucher and Josef Durrer opened the Bürgenstock Hotel before it became the property of Friedrich Frey-Fürst in the 1920s. Thanks to modernisation and extensions, one of our Lake Lucerne hotels has developed into a place of international renown with prominent guests such as Audrey Hepburn, Konrad Adenauer, Jimmy Carter and Indira Gandhi. After the extensive renovation, which lasted nine years and ended in 2017, the heyday of Bürgenstock is now experiencing a brilliant revival.
Elegant, modern and breathtaking. A feeling of freedom infuses your stay in our Lake Lucerne hotels in Bürgenstock Resort. The Bürgenstock Hotel, the Palace Hotel, the Waldhotel and the Taverne 1879 are majestically enthroned on a mountain ridge 450 metres above the beautiful Lake Lucerne. The clear water below you, the mountain ranges on the horizon and the clouds very close. Feel the boundlessness of this unique place, the peace of our region. Only 30 minutes behind Lucerne and at the same time so dreamily away from the hustle and bustle of the city and everyday life you will find one of our four Lake Lucerne luxury hotels! The Bürgenstock Hotels & Resort can be reached by the modern Bürgenstock shuttle boat across Lake Lucerne and then by our own Bürgenstock Funicular. More exclusivity is hardly possible!
