Lucerne has a long-standing tradition of festivals, which are held here throughout the year. Nowhere is the heart of the festival season more vibrant than at the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern, the Festival Hotel famous well beyond the country’s borders. And for good reason: the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern plays host to events such as the Blue Balls Festival, the Lucerne Blues Festival, the Zaubersee-Russian Music Lucerne and the World Band Festival. Indeed, many of the after-show parties regularly take place at the Schweizerhof Bar.
The Schweizerhof team is not just the partner and host for these stellar events; it also stages its own. The most recent example is the annual «Retro Festival» (17th to 21st May 2017), the new highlight in Lucerne’s calendar of festivals. Each year on a weekend in May, stars of the 1970s and 1980s put in guest appearances in Lucerne.
