Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne


Perched high in the clouds overlooking Lake Lucerne, the legendary five-star Swiss Alpine Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne glitters with wonder, as it has for decades. Known for its grandeur (the 150-year-old property covers a magnificent 148 forested acres) and its reputation as a Hollywood hideaway for silver screen icons such as Charlie Chaplin, Audrey Hepburn who married in its chapel, and Sean Connery. Bürgenstock Resort is a place of beautiful escape where mystical sense meets utter opulence.

The Bürgenstock experience begins with a scenic 30-minute transfer across the lake in the resort’s luxury MS Bürgenstock Catamaran, then the Bürgenstock Funicular, a vintage ruby red funicular restored to its original 1888 glory, whisks guests 1,600 feet above sea level transporting them to an extraordinary world of design, gastronomy and stylish leisure.

A village in itself, Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne is comprised of multiple accommodations including the Bürgenstock Hotel & Alpine Spa, the Waldhotel Health & Wellbeing, and the Bürgenstock Residences. Each place of residence offers something unique so be sure to explore them all to see which speaks most to your soul. No matter which you choose to rest your head at, the resort’s many crown jewels are there to be shared by all of its guests from its Alpine Spa – the largest wellness facility in Europe offering holistic treatments and a breathtaking Infinity Edge pool that makes every swim memorable – to the culinary journey offered at its seven restaurants and three bars and lounges with cuisines ranging from global gourmet to modern exotic. Plus, with the exceptionally personalized service of its dedicated concierge, guests have a roster of memorable experiences (including adrenaline seeking heli-skiing where guests fly to nearby mountain peaks for unmatched off-piste experiences) and every bit of Swiss luxury at their fingertips—after all, the glitterati would expect no less.
