Our home

In Vitznau, just at the foot of the famous Rigi (according to Mark Twain it is the "Queen of Mountains")and right at the wounderful Lake Lucerne we found an ideal place - not far from Lucerne. The penthouse, constructed in 2003, has access from the private double garage is by direct lift. The concept of this sunny appartment is the combination of a loft with a certain privacy of 3 separated rooms. All areas have broad doors opening to the large south terrace (25m long)and offer fantastic views to the lake and the snowcapped mountains in the background. All rooms have floor heating under white tiles. The decoration is modern minimal art. The kitchen with cooking isle is equipped state-of-the-art and forms with the dining and living areas together with a vestibule the loft. The rooms are: master bedroom with bath, 1 guest bedroom with folding bed/sofa and bath. 1 office. The house has a private access to the lake. Kayak, bycicles and skiers are for the use of our guests. A cleaning lady is available.

Who we are

  1. We (Ulrike, 63 and Eberhard, 69) are German retired business people (from the pharmaceutical industry). We also live in Spain and Singapore using our Lakehome in Switzerland for relaxing in the beautiful and comfortable atmosphere - both in summer and winter. So far we have enjoyed 5 nice swaps. Despite our age, we consider ourselves still creative, curious, sportive and adventurous - always open to meet interesting people (as a result from our frequent travels in all parts of the world). As we have other properties a non-simultaneous swap is always possible.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is situated in the small and quiet village of Vitznau with no through traffic (except on sunny weekends when exotic cabriolets and oldtimers are show-driven on the lake road.) Tourists arrive by the oldest still working steamboats from the nearby city Lucerne and take the first mountaintrain built in Europa(cog-wheel) to the Rigi Mountain, well-known for its spectacular views to 20 glaciers, 6 lakes and up to the German Schwarzwald. The railway- and steamer stations are in a 5 min. walking distance as well as a grocery, backery and some restaurants. The noble and old Park Hotel ranked as the 6th best Swiss hotel is just our neighbour. To the nearby city of Lucerne you can take a steamboat/ferry or a bus. It is famous for its high-class tourism, casino and shopping as well as for the old part with painted bridges and walls from the medievals. The airport of Zurich is 30 min. by car, the north of Italy and the south of Germany only 2 hours. In 3 hours you reach France or Austria. A few steps from our house you can swim (the lake has 24 C in summer), hike, climbe, bike or paraglide. Or you just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery from our terrace which has sun from sunrise to sunset. There is a webcam at the harbour with our home in the background: www.gemeinde vitznau > webcam
