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.
