Crowned heads and guests from politics, business and entertainment
The new resort looks back on a glorious legacy: the Grand Hotel opened for business in 1873. The Bürgenstock Railway, Europe’s first electric funicular, was inaugurated in 1888. 1905 saw the opening of the Felsenweg path, a path among the face of the mountain. The Hammetschwand Lift, the highest outdoor elevator in Europe, commenced operations that same year, too.
During the 1950s and 60s, the Bürgenstock Resort became a favorite haunt of famous personalities from society, business, politics and sport. These included stars and other notables such as Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer (who held their wedding at the resort in 1954), Charlie Chaplin, Sophia Loren and Carlo Ponti, Sean Connery, Pandit Nehru, first prime minister of India, and his daughter Indira Gandhi, who also went on to become prime minister, and many more VIP’s.
