Hotel des Balances

A prime location and pretty façade make the Hotel des Balances a top choice for travellers to Lucerne.

Opened as an inn as early as the 12th century, the Hotel des Balances has a long history of welcoming illustrious travellers to central Switzerland. The intricate murals on the building’s façade lend this hotel a romantic Venetian air; however, its fantastic location on the banks of the River Reuss mere minutes to the iconic Chapel Bridge and fascinating Glacier Garden remind visitors they are very much in the heart of old Lucerne.

The comfortable rooms and suites of this hotel feature stylish modern décor and hardwood floors. Large windows ensure plenty of natural light, and guests enjoy an outlook over the picturesque old town or the river.

The hotel restaurant and bar are both popular with guests and locals alike, serving inspired French-Mediterranean dishes and a premium selection of beverages in a cosy setting. On a fine day, don’t miss a meal on the terrace which offers unbeatable views across the sparkling clear water of the River Reuss to the handsome Baroque-style Jesuit Church and the world-famous Chapel Bridge, with its octagonal water tower.
