The Romantik Hotel Wilden Mann is a hotel of character, atmosphere and attentive service. I've stayed there several times, and each time, discovered something new. From the Gothic Revival Burgerstube on the premises of an ancient tavern (Wilden Mann received the right to serve drinks in 1517) to quirky staircases linking the seven houses that make up the hotel, the hotel never ceases to fascinate.
Officially listed as a hotel in 1860, the Wilden Mann was on the scene as an inn much earlier--centuries earlier. From the 16th century down to the present day, the venerable establishment has grown higgledy-piggledy to incorporate various buildings situated atop the city's original outer walls.
Guests are the hotel are just steps from the famed Kapellbrücke and a stroll along the Reuss, on the most beautiful riverside promenade in Switzerland. If you want to experience Lucerne's colorful history firsthand, the Romantik Hotel Wilden Mann is a great place to start!
