Castle Hotels in Switzerland

Switzerland’s stunning landscape never fails to impress and it has attracted royalty from around the world for hundreds of years. You, too, can be king or queen for a night (or more) when you stay in one of the numerous castle hotels in Switzerland.

Hotel Chateau Gütsch, Lucerne - 4*

The building dates back to the 19th century and overlooks Mount Rigi and Lake Lucerne. It successfully combines modern amenities with history. Expect flatscreen TVs, WiFi  and Tesla charging points, plus modern rooms that feature subtle nods to the past.

A historic Swiss hotel resembling something from a children’s fairytale or fantasy. The dusky pink and cool grey structure is topped by a series of turrets and narrow towers. The views are unparalleled, and the grandeur within cannot fail to impress.

Schloss Schadau – Thun – 3*

If the idea of staying in a restored medieval castle appeals, then book your room at Château d’Ouchy. This Swiss castle hotel offers a location on the shores of Lake Geneva, and a spa area with hammam.

Chateau d’Ouchy, Lausanne – 4*

The structure dates back to 1913, and is a sizable hotel with around 250 staff. As such it offers a superb health club and spa, five restaurants, tennis and squash courts and even the GreenGo nightclub.

Gstaad Palace, Gstaad – 5*

Dolder Grand, Zurich – 5*

Ideal for those who want to spoil themselves. The Alps, forest and Lake Zurich as well as the city can be seen from parts of the hotel and its grounds. A two Michelin starred restaurant and a 4,000-metre spa also add to this property’s list of impressive attractions.

If you are dreaming of spending a night in a castle hotel in Switzerland, there are plenty of options, from luxurious 5-star establishments to more traditional, but no less charming, Swiss castle hotels. There’s something to suit every budget.
