So what earned Boutique Hotel Himmelrich this prestigious award?
Boutique Hotel Himmelrich is magnificently located on the famous slopes of Mount Pilatus massif (also known as Dragon Mountain, as medieval folklore has it), overlooking the historical and pristine town of Lucerne. The luxury boutique hotel also looks over onto the entire Lake Lucerne, which is an unforgettable sight.

Expect to savour finely prepared dishes like Swiss Salmon Gravlax with Spanish Galician Octopus, Tortellini with gorgonzola and pears, and Peach with praline mousse with peach jam and vanilla ice cream.
