Property Overview

Since the opening of the Grand Hotel in 1873, the Bürgenstock Resort is a legend thanks to a combination of many firsts and iconic names. The resort housed many celebrities: Audrey Hepburn got married here, Charlie Chaplin was a regular guest, and Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti made the resort their home. This is also where the first electric funicular railway in Switzerland and the highest outdoor lift in Europe were built. Nowadays, Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne is a hotspot for today’s most influential personalities thanks to its elevated atmosphere and commitment to luxe privacy.

Rooms + Suites

A breathtaking alpine paradise.

There are four hotels in different styles at Bürgenstock Resort, each offering a uniquely stylized mountain stay. This set of properties has a flavor for all types of tastes, whether it's Bürgenstock Hotel's unparalleled views of Lake Lucerne or The Palace's Belle Époque accommodations that echo 20th century Europe's romance. We highly recommend staying at The Waldhotel for its striking facade and its integrated gardening concept that fuels seasonal cuisine. The cozy Taverne 1879 is perfect for explorers looking for a classic Swiss chalet.
Pool + Gym

Seamlessly infused with nature.

Each property at Bürgenstock Resort features a different aquatic experience, ranging from classic infinity pools that stretch out to stunning mountain views or bio pools seamlessly infused with the vibrant nature around the resort. Bürgenstock Resort also features a wide range of Matrix machines available 24 hours for workouts any time of day.

Pamper yourself with a one-of-a-kind experience.

Bürgenstock Resort's Alpine Spa is the largest spa in Switzerland. Each of the three levels offer a stunning blend of science-based "Biologique Recherche" approaches: indoor and outdoor swimming pools, saunas, hammams, infrared saunas, and relaxation capsules. Immersed in a breathtaking view of Lake Lucerne and the iconic Alpine landmarks, this is a one-of-a-kind experience to pamper yourself within.

Sure to satisfy a plethora of tastes.

Each of Bürgenstock Resort's twelve restaurants are sure to satisfy a plethora of tastes. There's a vibrant mix of gourmets to choose from, including French haute cuisine and native Swiss. There's also light Mediterranean choices, surprising Asian dishes from all across the continent, delectable Lebanese fare, and high-end American cuisines.
  • Bar
    Lakeview Lounge immerses guests in panoramic views over Lake Lucerne and signature cocktails named after VIP guests of the resort. The Connery is rather bold while the Kissinger is a harmonic blend of spirits. The Sophia Loren offers bittersweet flavors over some light dishes. But whatever you choose during dinner, make sure to cap the night off with the Chaplin.
  • Who's it for?
    The four stays at Bürgenstock Resort offer ideal experiences for spa-lovers and fans of adventure activities. Romance is absolutely alive throughout each of the properties while still leaving room for multigenerational family getaways.
  • Location
    Situated 500 meters above Lake Lucerne, the Bürgenstock Resort offers a unique view of the lake and the Alps. There are many ways to get here, but we love arriving here by shuttle boat and funicular. Start off from Lucerne along the deep blue lake, and then take the funicular railway straight to the lobby of the Bürgenstock Hotel.
