Experiences in Bürgenstock
Hitting the beaches and swimming on pools are only for the norms because extraordinary travelers know that there’s more to that- and when you travel to Switzerland, an infinity pool will give you that “more” factor you’ve been looking for.
Nestled above Lake Lucerne, the Bürgenstock hotel offers top-notch quality service and food which is sought-for by several tourists. The strategic location of this hotel leaves an awe-inspiring mark in the heart of every visitor since its pool is aligned to the best of views you can get a hold of in Switzerland- the Swiss mountains, Swiss lake, and even the sunset or the starry night!
Have a glass of wine as you bask under the sun or consider pampering yourself in their rejuvenating summer spas- you can choose either from Waldhotel Spa or Bürgenstock Alpine Spa. But if you’re a traveler with a strong heart, you can try different outdoor activities such as tennis and even hiking- all above the clouds.
We recommend having a one day trip from Lucerne combined with a visit to the spa to complete Switzerland travel. But if you prefer to spend the night in Bürgenstock, you can book an overnight stay in one of the resort hotels nearby. And if there’s a phrase to describe this experience, I’d only say this: It’s worth coming back.
Nothing hinders a wonderful travel- and it’s the same for this Bürgenstock infinity pool experience.
