Once frequented by French nobility, Russian aristocracy and the British upper class, nowadays the grandiose setting is enlivened by cosmopolitan guests who add fresh grandeur to the establishment.

A fixture – since 1870

Staying at the Grand Hotel National means immersing yourself in a different era. The high-ceilinged rooms, wide staircases and long corridors still exude an aura of classic elegance and inspire reminiscences of bygone but no less glamorous eras.

Today, the Grand Hotel National Lucerne presents itself as a historic, vibrant 5-star establishment with 41 rooms and suites, 22 apartments, and modern office space; not forgetting 6 restaurants/bars, 2 ballrooms, conference rooms as well as a pool floor with sauna.

We bear responsibility for this venerable building and are committed to ensuring its preservation for future generations – through mindful use of our resources and deep roots in the region.

Through our prominent location on the Lucerne lakefront amidst spectacular scenery, and owing to our remarkable history, we feel duty bound to be mindful of the natural environment and the region. Wherever possible, we prioritize local suppliers. Moreover, we maintain long-term and respectful relationships with our business partners and employees.

As an autonomous, privately owned company, we're able to apply these principles independently and credibly.
