Lakes and hills

Lucerne is known for the Lions-Monument, the mountain pasture Rigi and the Kappel-bridge. Still, the city has so much more to offer: picturesquely situated on the Lake of Lucerne this city is the gate to the heart of Switzerland, the homeland of Wilhelm Tell and the founding place of the Swiss confederation.

Situated outside of the town centre, Hotel Seeburg is the ideal starting point for bicycle tours in this region. You will discover an idyllic landscape with medieval city centers, Switzerland’s impressive mountain panoramas and beautiful lakes. Come and discover the heart of Switzerland – it will amaze you!
