The Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence is open



The new Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne is opening the Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence.

The five-star hotel provides 160 rooms and suites, all facing south and all boasting a comfortable sun terrace. 23 of the 160 rooms are specially equipped for patients from the musculoskeletal, internal medical/oncological and psychosomatic/sociomedical rehabilitation areas.

Also part of the hotel: the Verbena Restaurant & Bar with a show kitchen, the “Cooking Lab” teaching kitchen, two private rooms (the “Séjour Calame” and the “Simmentaler Stube”), a library and four conference rooms. A 4,200-square-meter Health & Medical Centre and the Waldhotel spa, with a zone exclusively for women, complete the offerings.

This exceptional hotel was designed by the Italian architect Matteo Thun.  Right on the inner side of the Bürgenstock mountain, the Waldhotel Health & Medical Excellence steps gently down the slope. Thanks to its terrace structure, the green naturally insulated flat roofs and a construction made of local stones, the Waldhotel blends perfectly into the landscape.



Robert Herr, General Manager of the Bürgenstock Hotel, describes the Waldhotel as follows: “The Waldhotel is a medical competency centre of the highest order. The focus of this five-star hotel is on medical services and services designed to promote health that are integrated into exclusive hotel and spa offers. A multidisciplinary team of doctors, therapists and nursing specialists looks after the health and well-being of the guests.”
