  • About this holiday

    A four star city hotel in the centre of Lucerne, the Cascada is a property inspired by the waters of Switzerland. With each room uniquely decorated with images of Swiss waterfalls, every stay at the Cascada is different, though a unifying fluidity gives the hotel an attractive ambience. Spend a few days here enjoying the sights of Switzerland’s fourth largest city, exploring the surrounding landscape, and sampling some of the Swiss culture, before moving on to another Swiss or Austrian city as part of a luxury rail holiday.

    Our opinion

    The four star Cascada Hotel in Lucerne is beautifully themed throughout, achieving a sophisticated and unique air that is perfect for a few nights in the city.

    Hotel description

    The four star Cascada Hotel is a chic, modern property in the centre of the scenic city of Lucerne. With only a few steps between it and the waterfront, it is the perfect location in which to begin, or continue, your exploration of Switzerland’s natural beauty. As soon as you enter the Cascada Hotel, its central focus becomes apparent. The cool blues, greys, and silvers of the lobby are sophisticated and instantly submerge guests in the waterfall theme. The 66 rooms are each named after one of Switzerland’s waterfalls and have a wall mural with dynamic images of the cascading waters, which adds an intriguing and memorable twist,. The rooms have a refined, contemporary feel, but with bursts of deep purple and natural colours that reflect the waterfall murals on the walls, sometimes lit by the strip-lighting behind the headboards. The Bolero Restaurant on the ground floor is Spanish and Latin American themed, serving beautifully-crafted tapas as well as a full menu in the evenings. Even the decoration of the dining room, in vibrant reds and soft oranges, and outside terrace creates the feel of a traditional European pavement cafe. With its central location, distinctive style, and excellent facilities, the Cascada Hotel is perfect as part of a longer luxury touring holiday, by rail or by car.


    In the centre of Lucerne, very close to the banks of the Reuss and Lake Lucerne.

    The city of Lucerne originated as a mediaeval town; as a result, some of its more traditional buildings remain, particularly around the Museggmauer, or old town wall. This city wall still has its 9 towers, each of which is surrounded by streets lined with chalet-style houses, with stone walls and narrow balconies. Lucerne’s most famous, and quirkiest, landmark might be the Chapel Bridge, which stretches diagonally across the Reuss. This covered wooden bridge has a stone water tower and is lined with artwork. The roof of the tower is decorated with artwork from the 17th century. The Court Church of St. Loedegar also dates back to the 17th century, and has a vaulted, white-stone interior, and twinned Gothic bell-towers near the waterfront. The image of a dying lion was carved into the rock face above a pond in the east part of the city to commemorate the Swiss guards killed in the French Revolution. If you’d like to see more of the Swiss natural landscape, we would recommend heading out onto the Rigi Massif, hemmed in between Lake Lucerne, Lake Zug, and Lake Lauerz. The slopes of this area are laden with almond and chestnut trees, and it is also home to Mount Pilatus, which has the steepest cog railway in the world. The popular sports in the area are determined by the lake and the mountains. Lake Lucerne is the fourth largest lake in Switzerland, and has the most diverse shoreline. The southern point, in particular, is much like a fjord, and is the site of the Rütli Meadow, where the country was reputedly born. Tours up into the Swiss Alps, through gorges and across glaciers, are also available with local companies.

    Sports nearby

    Perhaps take a trip on a paddle steamer across Lake Lucerne, or partake in something a little more adventurous with the local water sports.
