Overview

Spectacular mountainside setting, overlooking Vitznau and Lake Lucerne

The wonderful combination of a spectacular setting, a very friendly welcome, superb travel deals and a short hop to Lucerne constitutes the recipe for a relaxing and invigorating holiday – a real taste of Switzerland. Miles of walking are possible on Mount Rigi, after the ride up Europe’s first rack railway, while the world’s steepest cog railway runs up Mount Pilatus. Then take a dip in the small but breathtakingly located site pool and soak up the stunning views and surroundings.

Owned and run by the Zanetti family for over 50 years, English spoken.

An excellent site, which we were using for the first time.

This review is for Vitznau

An excellent site, which we were using for the first time. We were fortunate that the weather was very good during our stay. The site is arranged in tiers and we were treated to both lake and mountain views. The toilet/shower blocks were very spacious and clean with plenty of hot water. The staff spoke English well and were extremely helpful. The site was also very quiet with free wifi and handy for transport links, both by ferry and bus, also a cog railway in close proximity. We went by ferry to Lucerne and Weggis on two of our days and had a really enjoyable time. The village had an adequate food shop and the campsite had a very nice looking swimming pool which I didn't stay long enough to try. The only disappointment was that we hadn't booked for a longer stay. We will visit again!

This campsite has steep access roads with tight corners.

This review is for Vitznau

This campsite has steep access roads with tight corners. We broke our mover getting the caravan on and off the pitch because of the high kerbstones on the edges of the pitches. We feel the CCC should state that the site is not suitable for large outfits. Apart from the lake and the Rigi, Vitznau has little else to offer unless you are keen walkers.

We stayed 7 nights with caravan. Site 2 adults and dog.

This review is for Vitznau

We stayed 7 nights with caravan. Site 2 adults and dog. Location is excellent, only a short walk to boats, public transport and Rigi Mountain trains. Also small supermarket in the town. Views of the lake will vary depending on pitch. Pitches are not large but in line with local custom. Only just enough room for van, awning and car. Loo block in excellent, small pool, staff very helpful. I can imagine it would feel quite crowded when busy.
