Nowhere are the stars brighter and the sunrises more spectacular than on the Pilatus Kulm.
So close to Lucerne, yet an entirely different world. The 20 Standard rooms of the Hotel Bellevue are comfortably furnished and most offer a view of the Alps and Lake Lucerne. The panoramic views are truly magnificent and leave a lasting impression, no matter the time of year or weather.
The historic mountain hotel Pilatus Kulm***S was built in 1890 and completely renovated in 2010. It has 27 Superior double rooms and 3 Junior Suites, all with breath-taking views of the Alps. The state-of-the art meeting rooms of the Pilatus Business Center are bright and airy and best suit for events on 2,132 meters above sea level. Put the icing on your mountaintop experience with a cosy dinner and be woken gently the next morning by the fantastic sunrise you could ever hope to witness.
Queen Victoria rode up the Pilatus on horseback in 1868. The Hotel Pilatus-Kulm was built there in 1890, and in 2010 this listed hotel was completely renovated. The Queen Victoria Restaurant was named in honour of the queen. Market-fresh cuisine using local produce is served. Richard Wagner is also one of the Kulm Hotel’s past illustrious guests.
Today, the hotel with its stunning 360 degree views is a charming and skilful blend of tradition and modernity.
A Journey and A Destination
The ride with the Panorama Gondola and the aerial cableway “Dragon Ride” is an experience in itself. Upon reaching the top, there is another: seeing the spectacular mountain and lake views. This clears the mind and prepares you for all of the activities which may lie ahead. The nostalgic hotel, built in a modern alpine-style also offers culinary highlights in its outstanding Restaurant Queen Victoria.
