    Our opinion

    The Hotel Wilden Mann balances its historic and old-world style with elegance and modern facilities.

    Hotel description

    For the last 500 years, the four star Hotel Wilden Mann in Lucerne has been hosting guests. In 1860, the tavern became a hotel, but its winding corridors, traditional feel, and enthusiasm for hospitality remained. The white stone exterior is both grand and welcoming; flags fly above the windows, and flower boxes decorate the first floor. Inside, rustic dark woods and rich fabrics transport you back to the time of the hotel’s origins, and a spiralling staircase with wrought-iron banisters takes you up to the guestrooms. Handwoven curtains and intricately painted ceiling panels add delicate touches of authenticity. Follow the corridors, steeped in history, to one of the rooms, each of which has been individually and lovingly decorated in the particular style of the hotel. They have been designed with well-being and relaxation in mind. Antique furnishings bring character and depth, contrasted by the light, patterned fabrics and the artworks on the walls. Unique curtains are held in place by tasselled holdbacks, and lamps illuminate golden picture frames. Some rooms, at the top of the hotel, have exposed beams on their walls. In every room, however, there is a definite attractive style that is wholly individual to the Hotel Wilden Mann. Dining at the Hotel Wilden Mann can be one of two things: cosy rustic tradition in Burgerstube, or elegant fine-dining in Sauvage. Both preserve a bubble of tranquillity, away from the bustle of Lucerne. Sauvage specialises in Mediterranean and French-style cuisine, with a great deal of care spent perfecting the dining experience, while in Burgerstube, the atmosphere is relaxed, lively, and the food is homely, hearty, and authentically Lucerne. The Burgerstube Restaurant features wooden furnishings and panelling, with candles in the centre of the table to create a very Swiss, romantic feel. The Hotel Wilden Mann is a historic and charming property in the heart of Lucerne, perfect for exploring the enchanting old streets of the city and enjoying the proximity of the river and lake.

    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.
