November 2, 2016

Opening in Summer 2017, the highly anticipated Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne will herald a new era in Swiss hospitality to become a leading destination for the MICE audience.

Award-winning architecture, state-of-the-art conference facilities, four hotels – from modern masterpiece to historic grandeur – a 10,000m² glass-clad Alpine spa and a world-class medical centre come together in a spectacular setting, elevated 500m above the shores of Lake Lucerne.

The state-of-the-art conference and banqueting areas at Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne will be the largest in Central Switzerland. An ultra-modern 2,200m² conference centre is equipped with all the latest technologies for true ‘summit’ meetings. Spacious meeting points are designed to provide an outstanding framework for events, whether a seminar, congress, meeting or festivity.

Thirty flexible meeting rooms can accommodate up to 900 people with a stunning 500m² Lake-view Ballroom for grand events.

MICE guests will be warmly welcomed at the neighbouring Palace Hotel, built in 1904 as the crown jewel of Swiss hoteliere and today blending significant historic features with sumptuously elegant detailing befitting of this renowned beauty.

Re-created as a boutique-style hotel, marble pillars, hardwood parquet flooring and hand-blown glass chandlers invite guests into the lobby, which opens onto a grand outdoor terrace overlooking Lake Lucerne. Each of the 108 rooms and suites offer a contemporary twist inspired by their Alpine location, with natural stone, gleaming wood and soft leather. Naturally, all MICE guests have access to the full resort facilities including the majestic Alpine Spa.

Situated in a unique position between Lake Lucerne and the Alps, Bürgenstock Resort Lake Lucerne is conveniently located only 20 minutes from Lucerne and an hour from Zurich Airport, with direct flights from several UK airports; private speedboat transfers and an onsite helipad are available.

Lucerne is one of the most beautiful cities in central Switzerland, surrounded by soft green hills and the snow-capped peaks. An impressive array of palaces, monuments and churches, alongside exclusive boutiques, famous concert halls, a university and an international school add to its cosmopolitan feel.

This includes two coffee breaks with a range of refreshments, a two-course business lunch, in-meeting refreshments, technical equipment and room hire.
