The Château Gütsch sits proudly on Gütsch Hill overlooking the city. Due to its location, chances are, unintentionally the hotel appears in one of your photos of another must-see site. If needed, the Gütsch Funicular eases your transport to the hotel and is part of the Lucerne transportation system.
Since the land was sold in 1859, the site was meant for the construction of an inn. The first building was built by the original owner, Mr. Pfyffer. When Mr. Businger purchased it in 1879, he transformed it into a hotel. In 1888, a fire destroyed a large part of the building. It was rebuilt in 1901 with a new and still current appearance. During a certain period of turbulence, from the First World War to 1921, the hotel was closed and was only available to serve the military when needed.
The 4-star luxury hotel presents a sophisticated appearance with the towers. The views of the city are incomparable and a restaurant is also on site.
