L’ Hotel avec le train à vapeur et bateau à vapeur à sa porte d'entrée.

L’ Hotel Terrasse am See se trouve directement à côté de la station de bateaux à vapeur et des chemins de fer du Rigi. Il a été construit en 1873 par la Vitznau-Rigibahn, le premier chemin de fer de montagne d’Europe (1871), et fait partie intégrante du site de la gare. Des transformations (1899) et des agrandissements réalisés par l’architecte Berger (1929) ont modifié sa taille et son aspect. En plus de vacances et d’une délicieuse cuisine suisse, il propose des ateliers artistiques et des salles pour des expositions. Le restaurant Rondel surplombant le lac offre une vue magnifique sur la nature et de splendides couchers de soleil.

Histoire Hotel Terrasse am See

Histoire depuis 1873

In 1873, two years after the train line opened, the Rigi Railway Company built the Hotel Rigi-Bahn at the valley station in Vitznau. It was meant to offer the many visitors to the famous lookout mountain an ideally situated place to eat and spend the night. The building, with walls made of exposed brick and decorated with various pilaster strips and moldings, had a main floor, one floor above that and an attic with more guest rooms. A semi-open garden area and a terrace with chestnut trees directly on the lakeshore provided a quiet place to wait for the train or boat. In 1901, another floor was added to the building and the façades were altered with new balconies while the window frames were simplified. The canted southwest corner was graced with a small turret with a pointed spire. In 1931, the side of the hotel facing the lake was completely transformed. The terrace and the lounge were torn down and replaced by an extension designed by Lucerne architect Arnold Berger. The skeletal, semi-circular rotunda in reinforced concrete, standing on supports and jutting out into the lake, is one of the finest examples of ‘Neues Bauen’ in central Switzerland. Simultaneously, the main building was ‘purified’ to fit the spirit of the times. The corner turret was removed, a hipped roof with skylights was added, the façades lost all decorative forms and were painted a light green. Since 1983, a public footpath placed in front of the semi-circular building has spoiled the elegant appearance of the overall complex. Following the renovation of the façades in 2001 by the previous owners, today’s proprietors extensively renovated the interior of the hotel in 2011/12. Many rooms now feature restored parquet floors, historic furniture and wallpaper and colors in line with the past. The restored entrance hall with its historic terrazzo floor deserves particular mention. The Terrasse am See has been a member of Swiss Historic Hotels since 2008. (RF)
