A triad of sun, lake and mountains in the heart of Switzerland. An idyllic setting between the villages of Vitznau and Gersau located on the bank of Lake Lucerne. A short footpath leads away from the road and traffic into a picture book world. A pure delight for both young and old.

A stay for everybody

Thanks to the different buildings families and also school groups feel very comfortable here. A large hall offers a special atmosphere for family celebrations and the food is comparable to the class of the panorama.
