The new Bürgenstock Hotel 5* superior today forms the heart and the central attraction of the Bürgenstock Resort.
The imposing building blends naturally between the Hotel Palace and the Bürgenstock SPA and is facing Lucerne to the North. The design concept for the new hotel and its interior is based on scenes from legendary films. The design concept of the movie “Goldfinger” won Rüssli Architekten the Competition in 2010.
The new hotel sits prominently on the Bürgenstock rock, 875 metres above sea level. The facade is clad in pale Sellenberg limestone and rises like a skyscraper above the glass base. The stone’s grey-brown appearance is similar to the natural Bürgenstock rock. The materialisation of the facade picks up the themes of the hotel’s historical background while complementing these with modern design. From a distance, the building appears to be carved out of the rock. The stone facade contrasts with the metal elements such as the glass curtain walls and the punched windows. These match the striking canopies with their elegant bronze tone.
