Hotel Terrasse am See
The lake hotel with steam trains and steamers right at its front door.
The Hotel Terrasse am See is situated next door to the steamer pier and the funiculars up Mt. Rigi. It was first built in 1873 by the Vitznau-Rigibahn, Europe’s first mountain railway (1871), as part of the station complex. Modifications in 1899 and extensions by an architect called Berger in 1929 later transformed the hotel in terms of both size and appearance. In addition to a holiday atmosphere and good food, the Hobby Hotel offers guests creative courses in arts and crafts as well as exhibition space for their works. The Restaurant Rondel built over the lake promises guests the awe-inspiring first-hand experience - weather permitting - of nature in all its manifold glory, including some beautiful sunsets.
