ReserveInquireView Rates

The GRAND HOTEL NATIONAL lies on the right hand shore of Lake Lucerne, close to the centre of the city of Lucerne, offering wonderful views across the bay towards the world-famous Mt. Pilatus; a privileged location which has played a significant role in the celebrated history of this exclusive hotel. Opened in 1870 and built in the style of a French Renaissance chateau, the hotel created a revolutionary stir through being larger and more magnificent than any other previously built. Over the years, the GRAND HOTEL NATIONAL has become an important setting for history in the making. The hotel's architect, Colonel Maximilian-Alphons Pfyffer, a well-connected Swiss Officer, Csar Ritz, the then Hotel Director whose name was later to become known world-wide, Auguste Escoffier, once a chef at the hotel and a name still on the tip of every gourmet's tongue have all contributed towards placing the hotel in the history books of Lucerne.

HOTEL FACILITIES & SERVICES: The hotel's cuisine remains true to the tradition created by Escoffier. From the Italian cuisine of the "Padrino" and the specialities served in the "Thai-Lotus" to the "Le Trianon" and the elegant "National Bar", we aim to please the most discerning of palates. The GRAND HOTEL NATIONAL has signed an exclusive contract with the rich in tradition Milanese delicatessen temple "Peck". This gourmet attraction will open vis-à-vis the hotel, at Haldenstrasse 23, in spring 2001 and will be a no holds barred celebration of Italian gastronomy!

Spoil yourself in true southern style in the restaurant, the "Caffetteria", the "Bottega Alimentare" complete with "Vinothek" or in the typical Italian aperitif bar. Let the unique ambiance reawaken memories of "la bella Italia"; a world full of joie de vivre, where life is for living!

A popular choice for banquets, conferences and seminars, the hotel's selection of stylish function and meeting rooms can welcome up to 250 people.

An establishment interested in the continuation of tradition, the GRAND HOTEL NATIONAL at the same time also recognises and lines upon the demands of the modern world. The business strategy of the hotel is based upon the integration of the luxurious apartment suites of the "Résidence" into a sophisticated hotel environment, the welcoming of guests from all over the world, the patronage of the hotel by many local people and the creation of the best possible environment for management training.
