By bringing together the luxury of four Leading Hotels of the World properties, The Bürgenstock Collection has made it possible to explore Switzerland’s most sought-after and attractive destinations in an all-encompassing, luxurious experience.
With the portfolio comprising of Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & Spa, Royal Savoy Hotel & Spa Lausanne and the Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne, each property in the collection has been chosen for its standout location, the local heritage, contemporary design and impeccable Swiss traditions of hospitality, service and discretion.
From glistening lakes radiant with natural beauty surrounded by vineyards in Lausanne, to the capital Bern with its many local boutiques covered by six kilometres of arcades, to the ultimate mountain experience high above Lake Lucerne: The Bürgenstock Collection allows you to discover Switzerland in a way you never thought possible.
In the vibrant Olympic city of Lausanne, Royal Savoy Hotel & Spa Lausanne is a historic building with 196 rooms and suites, the largest hotel ballroom in the City of Lausanne, a brasserie with a terrace, a cigar lounge, a sky terrace with unparalleled 360° panoramic views of the city, an extensive 1,500 m2 spa area, as well as its own 5,000 m2 park.
Considered one of the best small cities in the world, Lausanne is a hive of art, historical buildings, and cultural activities that can keep you busy for days. Why not head out and get lost in the old town? Or take a tour of the nearby panoramic Lavaux wine region and let a professional guide you through the premium wines of the famous vineyard.
In warmer climes, guests can cruise around Lake Geneva with Private or Heritage Fleet stopping off to sip champagne and admire the town from the water.
The city is also great for foodies who can satisfy their every whim in the vast array of high-end cafes, restaurants, and shops selling artisanal chocolates.
At the end of a long day, enjoy a dinner at Brasserie du Royal inside the hotel, which offers Al Fresco dining during summer months and boasts unparalleled views of Lake Geneva. If you still have the energy to continue, don’t miss the young & vibrant nightlife in the trendy Flon District.
Called Royal Savoy Hotel & Spa for a reason, guests can unwind and be pampered with a signature massage, a choice of indulgent treatments, or yoga classes in the garden at Spa du Royal.
The UNESCO World Heritage site on the bend of the Aare River is home to Switzerland’s charming capital of Bern. A mediaeval city brimming with famous sites and ancient ruins, the Hotel Schweizerhof Bern & Spa in The Bürgenstock Collection offers 99 rooms of pure, Swiss bliss.
Discerning guests of the Schweizerhof Bern have a wide choice of activities from visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Old Town, the Albert Einstein museum and the Zentrum Paul Klee to sampling a delicious cocktail on the hotel’s Sky Terrace. Here, you can also find a wealth of local and international boutiques offering their fine wares along the city’s six kilometres of arcades.
For those looking for a bit more activity, visitors can head to the Rose Garden which offers an unrivalled view of the old town and the Aare loop or go urban swimming and rubber boating along the Aare River.
The hotel itself is famous for its award-winning in-house eatery Jack’s Brasserie. The quintessential French-style brasserie prides itself on offering a classic, seasonal menu based around premium local and regional ingredients in a charming continental ambience.
Likewise, the Lobby-Lounge-Bar offers a tasty selection of Mediterranean snacks and the seasonal Sky Terrace is an ideal location for a well-deserved sundowner during the summer season. The hotel is also renovating its stylish Tubbo terrace, which will allow for a unique covered outdoor experience during colder months. The panoramic views from the floor-to-ceiling glass panels and the cosy interior will make for a truly memorable winter wonderland.
Lake Lucerne, known as the 4 Cantons lake, encompasses the three original Swiss cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden, and the canton of Lucerne, which, together, surround Lake Lucerne.
Here, guests can stay at the Bürgenstock Resort, the ultimate luxury mountain escape high above Lake Lucerne, where they can admire the sweeping views below. The hotel offers 383 rooms, which have all been recently refurbished to an unparalleled standard of modernity and luxury.
Naturally, the hotel lends itself to the great outdoors and guests can explore the town’s many historical landmarks, enjoy golf, swimming or cycling, as well as hikes up the nearby Mount Rigi, Pilatus or Titlis. Home to the highest outdoor lift in Europe, the Hammetschwand Lift offers spectacular views of the region and well-worth a visit.
All that activity will no doubt leave guests in need of some well earned gastronomy and relaxation, both of which can be enjoyed at the resort’s endless culinary offers; French gastronomy in the Brasserie Ritzcoffier; Spices Kitchen & Terrace located on a spectacular overhanging platform and awarded with 16 Gault & Millau points; or Parisa Persian Cuisine for authentic Middle Eastern dishes, as well as the 10’000 m2/108’000 ft2 Alpine Spa. With its iconic infinity pool overlooking Lake Lucerne, this stunning retreat with beautiful mountain views is certainly something you won’t forget in a hurry.
Whether you are a culture vulture and want to see the sights, adventurous and outdoorsy, looking for an epicurean adventure or want to relax and unwind with top spa professionals, then the Swiss Escape by the Bürgenstock Collection has something for everyone.
