Switzerland, a country ideally located in the center of Europe, is known for its magical landscapes of lakes, mountains and the Alps. This small country is also famous for its hotels, which are among the most beautiful in the world. The Buergenstock resort, which reopened last fall after a 9 year renovation project, undoubtedly occupies one of the best places in the ranking. This five-star hotel in the Canton of Nidwalden stands on Mount Bürgenberg, 450 meters above Lake Lucerne, offering guests magnificent views of both the picturesque lake and the mountain range. If the Buergenstock resort is very popular with tourists, it is due to the unique setting in which it sits and to all the facilities it offers to its guests. Let’s explore together through a few lines why it is worth visiting during your next stay in Switzerland.
What the Buergenstock resort has to offer
Switzerland is a marvel of nature and the Buergenstock has many of those to offer. Built in a picturesque setting where nature expresses its finest manners (greenery, forests, lake, mountains…), the Buergenstock also has the luxury to offer the free use of its funicular down to the lake as well as its shuttle to Lucerne. You most of all can enjoy a very quiet place away from the hubbub of the city. Also, the hotel is close to the Hammelschwand lift, the highest in Europe! There is so much to discover. Hiking enthusiasts will be able to take advantage of the vast spaces created for the occasion, by foot or riding a bike. They will be able to walk in the mountains but also to climb them according to the season. If you play golf, you can try the alpine golf course near the hotel. Several areas are also equipped for the practice of sports activities (tennis, swimming, cycling, fitness, yoga…). But that’s not all. The place has all the modern facilities of a resort worthy of its rank. The services offered, renowned for their irreproachable qualities, range from beauty and wellness treatments (pedicures, manicures, hair removal, sauna, hammam …) to all kinds of leisure activities within the standards of a 5 stars: children’s play areas, concierge services, luxury shopping, several restaurants and bars, conference and business rooms and a movie theatre… It’s simply a miniature city.
The Alpine Spa
The Buergenstock resort is also famous for its breathtaking Alpine Spa, which is undoubtedly one of the largest and most modern in Europe (even in the World probably!). Spanning a 10,000m² area, the spa offers you the ultimate in luxury services of its kind. Everything was obviously designed to make you comfortable. The spa has a large indoor pool and two heated outdoor pools that offer breathtaking views of Lake Lucerne. But that’s not all. You can enjoy and relax in one of the 3 private spa rooms equipped with the latest technologies. The resort also has 15 treatment rooms, as well as a gym with modern equipment. The experienced staff of the resort will mark you with its full availability and advice. There are places that deserve to be visited at least once in a lifetime. The Buergenstock resort is one of them, except you may want to come back often…
All of this comes to a certain price… you should expect to spend between 700 and 900 Swiss francs (600 € to 800€) per night in an executive room overlooking the lake. But at this price you can enjoy a gigantic bathtub with stunning views, a beautiful fireplace, marble bathroom and spacious bedroom.
To get there from Paris, the easiest way is by plane. The flight to Zurich is shortly more than an hour and it is less than 1 hour and a half by car then.
