Our gorgeous Art Nouveau hall
Kurhaus Seeblick, located in Weggis, has restored its magnificent Art Nouveau hall
Located on the sunny southern flank of Mount Rigi, Kurhaus Seeblick has an excellent reputation in Switzerland. The informal atmosphere and stylish ambience of this tradition-steeped inn are particularly appreciated. Management has just had the spacious Art Nouveau hall on the plaza level renovated. The meticulous restoration work this involved was well worth it, as the time-honoured yet timeless hall always makes a tremendous, enlivening impression on visitors.
"The Art Nouveau hall has always been our crown jewel, perennially loved by the public," notes Director Edi Kurmann. "Built in 1910, the room was showing signs of aging, however. So we had it completely refurbished by experienced restorers and craftsmen, the result of which is a delight to our dinner guests."
The ornamented window front beguiles with an enchanting play of colours.
When you eat here you are transported back in time to the birth of the Lake Lucerne spa culture.
Those already familiar with the hall will notice that the carpet has been removed, revealing superb hardwood flooring that looks fantastic with the new tables and chairs. The walls and stucco have been repainted and the buffet area redone.
The four atmosphere-creating brass chandeliers have been painstakingly worked on, which consist of some 8,000 individual pieces which were all removed and re-polished or coated. "A lovely room that creates a vibrant atmosphere" – as both critics and the general public have noted. Like a real "home away from home", the ambiance at the Kurhotel spa is even better after the renovation. The atmosphere there is crucial to the R&R effect and healing.
"We hear over and over that there is scarcely anything comparable in central Switzerland," says Director Kurmann. "We thus note that the experience here is not exclusively enjoyed by our guests. Our doors are open, and we are pleased to greet local residents on a regular basis. Anyone with a sense of aesthetics will love having a look around here, perhaps with a cup of coffee and a slice of homemade cake."
The Art Nouveau room at Kurhaus Seeblick can be rented after 8 PM as well for classy receptions or parties at which guests can enjoy our cuisine –recognised as outstanding.
