Chateau Guetsch used to be a well known luxury hotel for many decades before it was recently closed. Nowadays you may still walk uphill or take the small funicular in order to enjoy the perfect panorama-view of the Vierwaldstaetter See / Lake Lucerne and the city. You simply have to insert some coins and the funicular takes you up a few minutes later, maybe they go on a regular basis, or maybe they wait for a minimum number of passengers. I had to wait 5 minutes and we had been just 4 passengers.
It is a pity to see that such a beautiful old hotel is not accepted anymore by modern tourists and it is even worse, as I have been there once in 1978, in its good times.
I was there upon invitation of the chef of Chateau Gutsch,who was one of my regular guests in Axalp/Brienz each summer-season. When I came back in 2005 the hotel was closed...

Unique Quality: You may take a look through the windows and get an idea of the former qualities of this hotel and its restaurant, it is a pity that it is closed now - hopefully NOT for-ever !
The Chateau Gutsch is pronounced in the french way, that is why it is also in the databas of VT with the name Guetsch.
