Hotel Des Balances

An inspiring break from everyday life promises you the traditional Hotel Des Balances in the middle of Lucerne. The hotel is located directly on the banks of the Reuss River and offers you beautiful views over the old town of Lucerne with the Chapel Bridge and Lake Lucerne. The historic facades blend wonderfully with the promenade and the wine market. The house has been a popular meeting place since the 12th century and has hosted many guests, including celebrities, as a hotel since 1837.
After breakfast, Lucerne awaits you. Explore the beautiful city and its region. Perhaps you would like to pay a visit to the queen of the mountains, the Rigi, or unite them with the “Golden Round Trip” the Lake Lucerne and the local mountain Pilatus.

For your culinary experience, a vacation at Hotel Des Balances means pampering at the highest level. The Balances restaurant is a wonderful blend of historic flair and modern design. Chef Andy Fluri and his team provide every day with imaginative interpretations of regional and market-fresh cuisine for delicious flights of fancy. This has been rewarded with 14 points by Gault Millau. Something very special is the terrace above the Reuss River, which accompanies the feast with a gigantic backdrop of the Chapel Bridge, Lake Lucerne and mountain panorama.

In the bar and lounge you can not only enjoy delicious drinks and a good drop of wine, but also let yourself be enchanted by the 7-course menu while sitting comfortably in the leather armchairs.
