Lucerne and the Bernese Oberland
Built in 1896 the Hotel Paxmontana is an architectural masterpiece that sits on a plateau with magnificent views onto Lake Sarnen and the surrounding mountains. It underwent a sympathetic refurbishment in 2010 and 2011 and has re-opened offering period charm and stylish, modern comforts. This great location is the perfect base from which to explore nearby Lake Lucerne, the wonderful Brunig Pass and the Bernese Oberland.
