A castle hotel in Switzerland was just perfect to celebrate our 3rd anniversary.
What began as a road trip from Frankfurt to Lake Luzern in Switzerland included a lot of cable car and train rides within the region throughout our stay with the Swiss VIP tell pass.
Swiss alps accompanied for most of the drive once we entered the country.
And the deeper we went in, we realized that Switzerland is all that and more.
Stone houses, an old world charm and plenty of beautiful on the way.
Lake Luzern is where most tourism cruises are parked and Schloss (castle in German) hotel, Merlischachen has one of the best views of the lake.
We arrived by noon, checked into our Egyptian suite and plopped on the marshmallow bed.
The good folks of the hotel knew just what we needed that evening – Swiss wine and swiss chocolate to complete our celebration.
But before that our welcome drink was waiting.
Cherry liqueur made in-house, locally called kirschwasser or cherry schnaps.
Bitter almond in taste and rich in flavour.
The owners of Schloss hotel store these in big jars at Brante restaurant in the hotel.
Almost every house in Switzerland brews this locally in small homemade distilleries.
The interiors of the hotel are beyond royal.
Walking in the corridors can leave you feeling overwhelmed.
As if the ancient castle era remains alive here.
With extravagant chandeliers, swords on the wall and brightly carpeted interiors.
By the time we fell in love and visited every nook & corner of this castle hotel in Switzerland, it was evening. We stepped out.
A little walk down the road led to this port of a place, with stunning view of the alps and quacking ducks prepping to sleep.
Just the right time and place to pour our wine and have a long night ahead.
Happy high and full of life, we returned to the romantic jacuzzi in our room.
Sprinkled some bath salts, requested candles from the reception and ended the day royally.
