The Bürgenstock Resort nestles in the heart of Central Switzerland atop a spectacular mountain ridge offering incomparable views of Lake Lucerne. The Resort is a landmark that measures 1 km across and occupies 60 hectares.
It is a place boasting a superior sense of vision. It always has. The first establishment to be built on Mt. Bürgenberg was the Grand Hotel back in 1873. It was a special destination for special guests, from Charlie Chaplin to Kofi Annan. Sofia Loren resided at the resort, and Audrey Hepburn was married in the Bürgenstock Chapel.
Mt. Bürgenstock is a great place for walking. Completed in 1905, the rock-face path “Felsenweg” is a traditional, some say mythical, mountain trail that leads to the towering 152.8 metre-tall Hammetschwand Lift.
Due for completion in 2017, Central Switzerland is witnessing the emergence of a premier resort – the Bürgenstock Resort. Therefore the Bürgenstock Bahn is closed.
