Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Drei Könige provides a comfortable base in the heart of Lucerne, a couple of minutes’ walk to the banks of the pretty river Reuss. Located in the lively Bruchquartier, you are in a great location to explore this historic town. 

Built in 1909 the hotel has retained its historical charm, yet has 21st century comfort and a welcoming family run ambience. If you’re looking for a traditional European city experience then look no further. A delicious breakfast buffet is provided which includes fresh bread from the nearby bakery.

On the ground floor of the hotel is a restaurant that goes by the same name ‘Drei Könige’ meaning ‘Three Kings’. Although this is run separately it is a convenient and charming place to grab lunch or dinner (paid locally).

Bedrooms are spacious, modern and attractively designed.

Transfer Approx. 1hr by rail from Zurich airport or 3hrs by rail from Geneva airport. Your journey may involve a change of train.

Occupying a stunning position on the banks of Lake Lucerne where the River Reuss meets the lake, Lucerne is a fascinating, colourful city winning the hearts of its many visitors. Small enough to discover on foot, explore the charming streets of the traffic-free ‘old-town’, with its frescoed buildings, delightful cafés, shops and boutiques, or drop by one of the city’s museums. Lake steamers regularly call in at the harbour, carrying guests to pretty lakeside villages such as Weggis and Vitznau, or to the local mountains of Mount Rigi, Stanserhorn and Pilatus Kulm, which all offer a good scope for walking. Our hotels in Lucerne offer a great choice of accommodation.
