Who was the real Wilhelm Tell? Follow the trail of the Swiss national hero and freedom fighter to find out, in the historic landscapes around the southern shores of Lake Lucerne: at Rütli, the birthplace of the nation; at the Schillerstein rock; the Tell Chapel, the Tell Monument and the Tell Museum.
The Hotel Terrasse am See was opened in 1873 under the name Hotel Rigi-Bahn. Its fantastic location right on the lake, the breakfast buffet above the lake until 11am in the Restaurant Rondel, the tranquility and views from the panoramic terrace and the evening atmosphere will transport you to another world. This holiday hotel offers the right infrastructure for a number of hobbies and is ideal for excursions, being right next to the boat landing and the Vitznau-Rigi Railway. The last major refurbishment was carried out in 2012.
A stay in this hotel becomes a journey through time, because the traditional Hotel Ofenhorn is steeped in history. Rooms, passages and dining room exude the spirit of the Belle Époque, for the original furniture and decorations from the time the hotel was founded still grace the interior spaces. Some of the rooms were renovated to be cosy, while four were lovingly restored as "nostalgic rooms" and are reminiscent of the pioneering days of the hotel industry. Even the restaurant keeps to the traditional with its Valais specialities.
