    Hotel description

    In a fantastic central location in Lucerne, the three star Hotel Waldstaetterhof offers sleek, bold accommodation. From the outside, however, the hotel resembles a Swiss palace, due to its 20th century origins. A combination of terracotta-coloured stone, white-wash, and peaked maroon turrets make this aspect particularly unique. The windows are grandly framed and look out onto the picturesque buildings and houses of the City of Lights. Behind these windows are the guestrooms, each of which is furnished with the ultimate care and attention. Polished wooden floors, combined with off-white walls, curtains, and bed sheets, create a sense of warmth, which is contrasted by bold reds, blues, and artworks above the headboards. Carefully positioned flowers, modern amenities, and the addition of more classical furnishings, such as the armoires, add to the overall comfort of these rooms. The hotel restaurant and bar further refine the modern design of the rooms. Sharp lines, bright feature colours, and unique ornaments, such as tall stone vases, set the tone for the innovative, colourful cocktails, and the wide selection of tasty fresh food. A stay of a few nights at the Hotel Waldstaetterhof is an excellent addition to any touring holiday around Switzerland, offering you a superb location close to the train station, delicious food, and stylish accommodation.


    In the heart of Lucerne, just a few minutes’ walk from the riverside and the Chapel Bridge.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    The area around Lake Lucerne is rich with cosmopolitan life, historic monuments and passageways, and Alpine panoramas. Begin your exploration by wandering along the Reuss River, stopping at the Chapel Bridge, Switzerland’s most photographed monument, and the Water Tower before continuing on to the Spreuer Bridge, with its red-roofed turrets. Other historical attractions in Lucerne include the 17th century baroque Jesuit Church; the nine towers of the Musegg Wall above the city, built in the 14th century; and the historic squares that dot the city, particularly the Kornmarkt Square, which is home to the painted Town Hall. Weinmarkt Square is the site on which the cantons of Uri, Schwyz, Lucerne, and Unterwalden signed a federal oath in the early 14th century. Perhaps also visit the KKL Luzern art museum, the Rosengart Collection of works by Picasso and Klee, the Wagner Museum in Tribschen, and of course the Swiss Museum of Transport. Finish your tour with a visit to the Dying Lion of Lucerne, carved to commemorate the deaths of Swiss mercenaries at the attack on the Tuileries at the end of the 18th century. Outside Lucerne, visit the picturesque lakeside towns of Weggis and Vitznau, or follow the trail of the Swiss National Hero of Liberty, Wilhelm Tell, around the north-eastern shores from the Rutli Meadows to the chapel at Sisikon.
