Chapel Bridge and Watertower,
Lake Lucerne and the Swiss Alps
Located in the heart of Switzerland, Lake Lucerne is surrounded by wonderful Alpine scenery being nestled below Mounts Rigi and Pilatus. This region, specifically Rütli, is the birthplace of modern day Switzerland and the site is considered a national monument. Our family run hotel is centrally located in the small lakeshore town of Hergiswil. Situated directly on the lake, this is a great location from which to explore the surrounding area by coach or boat.
