"We have respect for people, food and historical buildings," says Roland Scherrer. He and his wife, Pia Scherrer-Nussbaumer, have channeled that respect into a loving restoration of the original Rigi-Bahn Hotel, and on a daily basis, welcome guests to sleep with history at Hotel Terrasse am See.
A stay at Hotel Terrasse celebrates Swiss traditions with knock-out sunsets over Lake Lucerne. Each floor of the hotel tells a story of the railway and hotel, and each room is unique. The hotel's restaurants offer unbeatable views and the menus, locally sourced ingredients. The wine list comprises 100% Swiss labels, and at least one wine from each of Switzerland's 26 cantons.
The hotel is easily accessible from Mount Rigi's valley station at the Vitznau boat landing. It's a great place to kick back for a night or two, and the terrace restaurant is perfectly situated for a meal while waiting for an afternoon boat back to Lucerne.
