Four Hotels on Lake Lucerne

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.

Marvelous views & wellness

Some iconic features of the "old" Bürgenstock Hotel have been preserved, for example, the famous Hollywood Pool, where Sean Connery already made his rounds. But of course, the luxurious hotels’ ensemble on Lake Lucerne has many other amenities to offer today. The 10,000 square metre Alpine Spa on three floors offers everything the wellness heart desires: five pools, 13 treatment rooms, a Spa Garden, the ultra-modern 200 m² fitness area and even its hairdressing salon with spa boutique. At the heart of all our efforts is, of course, your well-being, which is why more than 800 employees provide the best possible service. In the 10 restaurants, bars and Lounges spread over all four Lake Lucerne luxury hotels, there are no limits to your culinary possibilities. The selection ranges from haute cuisine in a starred restaurant to specialities from the Orient and Swiss Alpine cuisine.
