Hotel Chateau Gütsch is a luxury 4 star fairytale castle hotel that you see up on the hill whenever visiting Lucerne. I always look up to it and start thinking of stories such as “Sleeping Beauty” or “Rapunzel”. Interestingly the building is actually inspired by Schloss Neuschwanstein in Bavaria.

The huge windows make it possible to also have a beautiful view of Lucerne and the lake whilst eating indoors.

Of course eating on the terrace outside the view is even more spectacular. See the view from our table in the picture above.

Italian born Ludovico De Vivo is the chef of the reopened restaurant Lumières. Initially taught and inspired by his mother’s great cooking. Later working in top-class establishments in Italy, Switzerland and Tokyo.

The menu consists of regional delicacies with classics from European and Asian cuisines. With many vegetarian alternatives. There is a great wine card and super friendly Sommelier ready to help with your choice from the great selection in the wine cellar.

We decided to go for a classic Chateaubriand which was cooked to perfection. Dessert is certainly not to be missed – check out the amazing pavlova…
