Park Hotel Vitznau, a staycation in one of Switzerland’s most prestigious resorts

Location

A culinary weekend in the country’s core, central Switzerland

Yet another chance to indulge in one of the best hotels (and restaurants) in my home country for my husband and me; this time we were invited by friends who celebrated a special birthday! They had chosen Park Hotel Vitznau on Lake Lucerne for this purpose, and we could not be more delighted to spend a weekend at this hotel jewel, that had opened 2013 after an extensive renovation.

Short trip to Lausanne in the western part of Switzerland

Location

Checking in to Hotel Royal Savoy in Lausanne-Ouchy

As my husband attended an executive education event in Lausanne, I had the chance to spend some time in Lausanne too, the second largest city in the French-speaking part of Switzerland after Geneva. Like the latter it is located on Lake Geneva and it is a great place to spend a weekend in style in the most beautiful vineyard region in Switzerland, the Lavaux. The choice as to lodging was made by the organizer of the event mentioned (special rate), but I could not have made a better one myself as Hotel Royal Savoy proved to be a true gem.
