Lucerne has a vast number of monuments worthy of a sightseeing trip. Both the city of Lucerne and the Lake Lucerne Region are often referred to as the "essence of Switzerland". In a small amount of space, this region embodies almost everything that is a part of Switzerland: a city whose old town dates back to the Middle Ages, a lake with Europe's most extensive inland navigation and a panorama of the Alps, all of which provides an ideal setting for combining excursions and allowing the visitor to explore and experience the Lake Lucerne Region from a different angle.
Welcome to Lucerne’s legendary Grand Hotel. It was founded back in 1870, by César Ritz and Auguste Escoffier. Stylish grandeur combined with tradition and modernity awaits guests at this unique location, right on the shore of Lake Lucerne.
Over the centuries, the Grand Hotel National has become an important location in Lucerne's history. Those who have helped add Lucerne to the history books include César Ritz, the world-famous managing director, as well as the chef Auguste Escoffier.
Individuality and personalised hospitality are given top priority in the Grand Hotel National. You will feel at home as soon as you arrive and will be treated to excellent service by our charming team of staff.
International and innovative delicacies are served in the elegant ambience of the restaurant “Le Trianon“. Italian cuisine and select wines await you in the “Il Padrino” restaurant with its Mediterranean ambience, whilst Thai cooking is celebrated in the “Thai Lotus”.
Indulge in breathtaking views over the lake and enjoy the panoramic alpine view over central Switzerland. Whether you are travelling on business or for leisure purposes: We, the Grand Hotel National team, care about your well-being and look forward to welcoming you as our guest.
