Summer, sun, water. What more do you need to be happy? And where better to find this happiness than on one of our clear Swiss lakes?
We have put together for you our five best Hotelcard partner hotels with lake locations. Just sit on the lakeside terrace and gaze at the sun glistening in the water or cool off with a dip in the fresh water on a hot day - that's pure relaxation. And if that's not enough, we have put together a few more exciting excursion tips to suit every hotel.
The best way to round off the day is to enjoy a fine meal or aperitif with a view of the lake, while the sunset bathes the landscape in a warm light. A guaranteed holiday atmosphere!
