Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our places to stay in the Central Cantons of Switzerland are spread across the cantons of Lucerne, Zug, Schwyz, Uri, Nidwalden and Obwalden, where history is a great attraction. This is not only the geographical hub of Switzerland but also the emotional heart of the country: these German-speaking cantons surrounding the Vierwaldstattersee helped to found the nation some 700 years ago.

 The medieval town of Schwyz is here, in the Canton named after it. Schwyz is a delight to visit, and it gave its name to Switzerland. Local cuisine consists of dishes such as Luzerner Chugelipastete, a veal, pork and sausage vol-au-vent with raisins soaked in kirsch.

 As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in the Central Cantons offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses,restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have thespecial qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
