Bürgenstock Hotels & Resort – a visionary oasis of well-being

1 / 2
2 / 2

Famous guests helped make the Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne a legend. A new chapter began in 2017 with the opening of the Bürgenstock Hotel & Alpine Spa, Palace Hotel,  Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence, Residence Suites, conference facilities and Bürgenstock Alpine Spa.

Perched on a wooded rocky spur 500 metres above Lake Lucerne, the Bürgenstock Resort offers wonderful views of the surrounding mountains, such as the Rigi and Pilatus.

Holiday feeling

The MS Bürgenstock Katamaraon service plies the lake between Lucerne and Kehrsiten. On arrival, the Bürgenstock funicular railway takes you directly to the lobby of the Bürgenstock Hotel. The resort complex extends along the northern side of the Bürgenstock and offers stunning vantage points. Lean back and let your gaze wander into the distance.

Active and passive relaxation

The infinity-edge pool in the Alpine Spa is invitingly relaxing. On reaching the outdoor pool heated to 35°C, water and sky appear to merge. A spectacular view. With steam baths, panoramic and aroma saunas, Kneipp hydrotherapy baths, multi-sensory showers and shower and whirlpool baths, the Alpine Spa leaves nothing to be desired. Feel like royalty in one of the Private Spa Suites.

There is more activity to be found on the golf course or tennis courts – or even the ice rink in winter. Footpaths also provide a breath of fresh air. The Hammetschwand Lift – a masterpiece of engineering – is just a stone’s throw away. Europe’s highest outdoor lift almost takes your breath away – hugging the steep rocky flanks, the cabin travels 152 metres in just under a minute. The Bürgenstock Resort’s surroundings also offer various mountain biking and hiking opportunities.
