It was for the most elegant of business conferences, and one that knew its venues well I might add, that I found myself alighting from one of the Swiss trains and walking along the delightful promenade edge of Lake Luzern to the exquisitely located Palace Hotel.
From the first to the last day here, everything was delivered in well couched elegance and immaculate beauty, in terms of the various conference rooms, dining venues, and drinks terraces. To top it all the lake side facing bedrooms were an epitomy of good living and grace but most of all the view directly onto Lake Luzern from the balcony was nothing short of magical impressionism.
The view extends from the Luzern Conservatoire enclave and opens out to the wider part of the lake, continuing on it seems seamlessly towards the overlapping mountains which go further than the eye can follow. The lighting also varies dramatically from the late afternoon when I arrived, where there were shadows of a more sombre tone toward close of day, to early the next morning when the glorious sunshine turns the whole lake view into a magnificent landscape piece.
All this was not to say that the relative lack of mention on my part, of the cuisine at the hotel was in anyway unappreciative, but just that though it was competent at all times, the environs and venue itself was enough to occupy and delight ones senses for most of the visit.
No more words, but just to say a Palace Hotel in full keeping to that which its palatial name suggests. I would suggest you try it if you ever venture to Luzern.
