Vitznau: Vierwaldstättersee - Beckenried

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.

The historic 3-Star Hotel located directly by the boat station as well as Rigi-Bahn valley station, breathes the magic of days gone by when travelling by steamboat was only natural and matter of fact. Own stepway to the water, large terrace by the lake to sunbathe - and grand evening ambiance in the delightful Restaurant Rondel, extending over and above the lake.

More Info

For lovers of Historic Hotels

The former Hotel Rigibahn was built in 1873 by the Vitznau-Rigi Railway and extended in 1930 to its present form. A striking feature is the "Berger Annex", the Bauhaus style Restaurant Rondel that swings out over the lake and was originally designed to be the first dancing hall on Lake Lucerne. The Rondel still has all its original furniture from 1930.
