Dining Out In Lucerne Is Multicultural With Grand Vistas To Boot

It seems a given that anyone visiting the beautiful city and region of Lucerne, Switzerland, will be asked more than once if you have visited Bürgenstock, the vast eagle's nest resort at the top of a 1, 115 meter mountain of the same name in the Uri Alps, reached by a funicular after a breathtakingly beautiful boat ride from the Lucerne Europaplatz docks.
In fact, Bürgenstock has the remote look of a fabulously wealthy Bond villain's lair, and the funicular would make for a great action scene. After several transfers of ownership and management over the years, the resort was bought by the Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company, wholly owned by the State of Qatar, and since 2013, more than 485 million CHF has been invested, with a total re-opening in 2017.
