52 new guest rooms and junior suites now opened

As of now we welcome our guests in 52 new guest rooms. Explore the history of the hotel on the basis of 52 former hotel guests.

52 new double rooms and junior suites are expecting you

The Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern has adopted a completely new concept, whereby its status as the Festival Hotel (Blue Balls Festival, Lucerne Blues Festival, Zaubersee - Russian Music Lucerne, World Band Festival, Retro Festival and many other events) is reflected in every guest room. However, the new design of these rooms is only part of the overall concept: every single guest room also tells a story about the visits of personalities such as writers, musicians or actors to the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern. 

This way you get to know, how in 1859 hotel guests protected themselves against the noise of Richard Wagner who was composing in this guest room. Or how (at that time not yet 'Sir') Winston Churchill, 19-years-old, in 1893 was adoring the electric light of the Schweizerhof. Or how our regular guests the Converse family was hijacked and later freed on their way back home in 1970. But also anecdotes from several festivals are not missing, for example how B.B. King spontaneously played his guitar 2002 in our Zeugheer ball room.

Guests could read these episodes, for example, on the desk in their room and, at the same time, discover further elements of the 101 stories and/or legends surrounding these personalities from various quotes, objects or writings. Each guest room thus bears a different “thumbprint”. Hotel Director Clemens Hunziker says: “Not only we are able to offer beautiful rooms with a unique ambience and 5-star-plus infrastructure, but also an individual experience for each guest. Naturally, it is up to our guests to decide how far they want to venture down this cultural path.”

Further 49 rooms and suites will be renovated in a second step between January and April 2014, thanks to two different wings again without any noise disturbances for the guests staying with us.
The 52 new renovated rooms are bookable as Superior Double/Twin Rooms and Junior Suites. Highly recommended is our new 2-nights-package Opens internal link in current window«Discover Lucerne and the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern».

We are looking forward to welcoming you soon!
