The most beautiful places and accommodations in the Lucerne region:

The Lucerne-Lake Lucerne region beckons for summer in the mountains and by the lake. Yet, even in winter, the region promises a wonderful stay amid enchanting snowscapes and snow-covered mountain villages. Lucerne is centrally located in the most beautiful ski areas of the region, a dream for winter sports enthusiasts as all areas are reachable within an hour's drive. The town itself also has much to offer, with its picturesque old town inviting exploration. Lake Lucerne is an idyllic lake surrounded by mountains, inviting for swimming, boating, and relaxation. A boat trip is a fantastic way for both young and old to admire the surrounding landscape. The mountainous scenery around the lake is rich in historical sights waiting to be explored. Baroque monasteries, wild gorges, mountain railways, and vibrant cities – the Lucerne-Lake Lucerne region is as diverse as Switzerland itself. How about a beautiful boutique hotel in the Lucerne region, nestled in the picturesque backdrop of this area? The village of Andermatt, in the heart of the Swiss Alps and part of the Lucerne region, combines everything for which Switzerland is so popular: winter sports, hiking, historical architecture, lakes, and cultural diversity. We have unique chalets there that offer the perfect holiday spot in the historical center of Andermatt.

Where to stay in the Graubünden region?

The canton of Graubünden has everything worth a visit: valleys in all directions, rivers running through the region, and a linguistic diversity that will impress you. Graubünden is the largest canton in Switzerland, located in the east of the country. It is also the only canton where three official languages are spoken: German, Italian, and Romansh. In winter, you can ski, snowboard, or enjoy a leisurely horse-drawn sleigh ride here. After a day full of winter sports, you can indulge in a culinary treat with cheese fondue or raclette. In summer, you can admire meadows, pastures, and forests, climb peaks, or simply sit in the greenery and let nature take its course. There are small boutique hotels and romantic vacation accommodations in the Graubünden region where personal service takes precedence. Or perhaps you prefer a small hotel with a stately atmosphere in the holiday region of Engadin St. Moritz? Enjoy soothing tranquility and breathtaking Alpine panoramas combined with unique hospitality here.

Selected destinations around the Bern region:

The canton of Bern holds many surprises. As one of the most diverse regions in Switzerland, it offers a rich palette from the UNESCO World Heritage City of Bern to the Emmental for every taste. Like few other cities in Europe, the capital Bern has preserved its history. Here, you'll find countless fountains, sandstone facades, alleyways, and historical towers. From the old town to the 101-meter-high Zytglogge clock tower, Bern offers a variety of special places. Charming street cafés attract visitors and locals alike. In the Emmental, there's much to do, but one thing is certain: boredom is not an option. Whether hiking, snowshoeing, gold panning, pottery, or horseback riding – everyone will find something to their liking here. From the legendary Emmental cheese to ham and a wealth of regional products, the palate is also spoiled in this part of the canton. The holiday destination Adelboden is characterized by village charm and familial idyll. Both in summer and winter, the Adelboden region is one of the most versatile holiday destinations in the Bernese Oberland. Known as a ski destination, it also offers numerous walking and hiking trails, a growing wellness offering, and a family-friendly orientation.
