Zürich + The Northern Cities

Hotels in Zürich + The Northern Cities

Nothing captures the town’s charm like the Romantik Hotel Schweizerhof, with its pitched roofs and 19th-century wood-paneled façade. The suites blend old-world details (fireplaces; carved pine headboards) with modern amenities (flat-screen TV’s; heated tile floors in the bathrooms).

Family-owned since 1861, the stately, neo-Renaissance Hotel Schweizerhof, near the lakeshore promenade, has a storied past. Luzern is known as Switzerland’s “festival city” (chiefly for its summer music festivals), and the five-star property hosts several events of its own throughout the year.

This lakeside hotel, which opened in 1909, has a Belle Epoque feel to it. Staying here is a deeply romantic experience, and adding to that are all of the modern comforts from recent renovations. Enjoy one of the beautiful rooms facing the lake, and first-rate breakfast buffets.
