Hotel des Balances stars



4-star superior hotel in the heart of Lucerne's old town, directly on the river Reuss. Managed by Peter E. Büsser for 21 years. All the rooms and suites in this 12th century house were completely renovated in 2008, historic flair blending harmoniously with the most modern design both on the outside and the inside. The restaurant Balances with its lounge, bar and terrace boasts 14 Gault Millau points.




Fascinating contrasts full of inspiration: Trendy bar with stylised interior, medieval walls with contemporary fabrics, elegance with nonchalance. The rooms are decorated tastefully and with understated elegance in warm, natural tones. The suites have free-standing Jacuzzis, and some have a steam shower and an infrared sauna. A view over the river.


Des Balances has all Lucerne at its feet! Thanks to its location, the hotel makes a perfect base for shopping and sightseeing tours, besides having plenty of attractions of its own.

The history of the building dates back to the twelfth century and proves it to have been a popular meeting place throughout the ages, even if it did not become a hotel until 1837.

The painted facade is one of the most photographed motifs in town and viewed from the river Reuss, gives it the flair of a Venetian palace.


Excellent boutique hotel. Good for sightseeing and close to the city center. Popular among couples.
