For lovers of Typically Swiss Hotels

Queen Victoria rode up the Pilatus on horseback in 1868. The Hotel Pilatus-Kulm was built there in 1890, and in 2010 this listed hotel was completely renovated. The Queen Victoria Restaurant was named in honour of the queen. Market-fresh cuisine using local produce is served. Richard Wagner is also one of the Kulm Hotel's past illustrious guests.

Today, the hotel with its stunning 360 degree views is a charming and skilful blend of tradition and modernity.

Inspiring Meeting Hotels

The steepest cog railway in the world is an experience in itself. Upon reaching the top there is another: seeing the spectacular mountain and lake views. This clears the mind and prepares you for a meeting in one of the historic mountain hotel’s seven seminar rooms at 2132 metres above sea level. The nostalgic hotel, built in a modern alpine-style also offers culinary highlights in its outstanding Restaurant Queen Victoria.
