Built in 1890, this hotel has a rich Belle-Epoque interior which was recently restored to its original beauty. Located at over 2100 metres a.s.l. on Mount Pilatus, you might be forgiven for missing the architecture in favour of the captivating views deep into the Alps. The rooms have been refurbished in a contemporary, low-key style, with Alpine inspired wood and colour accents and design furniture. Apart from the huge sun terrace looking south, there is the ambitious in-house restaurant Queen Victoria and a bar. The hotel can only be reached by cable car or the cogwheel railway. Travel time to Lucerne is 1h15min.
