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.
