Hailed as ‘The Architectural Project of the Century’, more than 550 million Swiss Francs were spent on the renovation of the Bürgenstock Resort. Accessed by private catamaran and a fully-restored 1888 funicular railway, guests are transported across Lake Lucerne and directly into the reception of the mountain top retreat.

Surrounded by lush meadows and green forests, the Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence is located in a peninsula surrounded by the crystal clear waters of Lake Lucerne, which has always been known as a magical power place. Swiss hotel hospitality of exceptional quality, the most modern of medical concepts and extraordinary architecture combine in the Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence to create a place of healing and relaxation. Designed by Matteo Thun, the façade of the terraced building has a sunny southern aspect and blends harmoniously into its natural surroundings.

To Eat

Your health takes centre stage at the Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence. The integrated health concept at the Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence includes nutrition. The restaurant concept is part of a healthy cuisine that is fun and tastes good. “Your own healthy eating” also pledges a nutritional philosophy that is completely matched to your individual needs.

The Waldhotel Colour Cuisine was developed exclusively for guests by a doctor, a nutritional scientist and a dietitian. The new concept is truly impressive thanks to its uniqueness. No two bodies or metabolisms are the same – our nutrition concept is equally unique. After a comprehensive explanation, which provides information about your personal metabolism, metabolic rate and your current nutritional status, the dietitian creates a personal nutrition programme for you. This is based on basic foods, but it also considers other very important and often forgotten components.

Since autumn 2019, Head Chef Martin Stein and his team have been awarded 14 Gault Millau points.
