Hotel Preview: Park Hotel Vitznau

Finding the right words for the Park Hotel Vitznau that reopened in 2013 is very tough. Located right at the Lake Lucerne and having a rich history as one of the best luxury hotels in Switzerland, the Park Hotel Vitznau nowadays focuses on health and well-being. But that’s not all because especially the newly appointed rooms, each and every one differ from another, are the real highlight of the new Park Hotel Vitznau.

After renovations which costed more than 200 million Euro, the Park Hotel Vitznau reopened in 2013. Many months later, the hotel also became part of the renowned Leading Hotels of the World. Today, less than two years after its opening, the Park Hotel Vitznau is back to the top and is already renowned for being one of the best luxury resorts in Switzerland.

There are many reasons for that as the hotel offers the best of the best when it comes to the 47 suites of the hotels, each unique, the two restaurants, both award-wining, and the large Spa, fitness and well-being area.

Absolutely unique – 47 different suites

When you plan to stay at the hideaway right on the Lake Lucerne, you’ll have to make yourself comfortable with the rooms first.

Even though the hotel offers some room categories to make it easier for guests to decide, you may ask for the suite of your choice before arrival.
