Our hotel

Two houses and one philosophy: enjoyment provides double joy! We have not only arranged beautiful rooms for our guests, but also have two restaurants that guarantee double delights: the regional, ever fresh creations by patron Freddy Zimmermann in the two restaurants “Brönni” and the “Blatti-Stube” inspire our guests and also provide a marvellous atmosphere with an impressive ambience. 
The architecture integrates old balconies and supporting walls with abundance of light, natural stone and light-coloured wood; many enchanting details that create a place to fall in love with. 
The “Huus” with its pretty and well-maintained rooms offers a good reason to anticipate a visit to Friedheim. The panorama terrace invites you for a relaxed stay and the location of the house high above  Weggis provides a marvellous view of the lake.
Relax, allow yourself to indulge, feel the peace: Friedheim is an ideal place for unforgettably beautiful holidays.

We would gladly pick you up at the dock. Or for a first-time experience in summer take the unique Lidobus (open local bus).
The nearest bus stop is called “Zopf”. From there it is a pleasant walk over the hill (approx. 10-20 min).


The 1st Generation > 1904

The first generation to run the Hotel Friedheim were the four children of Clemens Zimmermann, along with two sisters of their father. Despite the tragic events in their lives, the early death of their mother and their father dying in a fatal accident, the Zimmermanns completed the renovations and additions to the hotel and were able to open the Hotel Friedheim, as planned, in 1904.

The 2nd Generation > 1928

The youngest of the four children, Alfred Zimmermann, and his wife Josephine Zimmermann-Kaufmann, took over the running of the Hotel Friedheim which was now wired for electricity. It was continually renovated and added-on to, and soon they even had running water.

The 3rd Generation > 1971

The third generation of Zimmermanns now took over the running of the hotel. Alfred and Madeleine Zimmermann-Bärenbold managed the hotel with great pleasure and still help today where needed.

The 4th Generation > 1993

Since 1993, we, Freddy and Denise Zimmermann-Thali, have been in charge of the Hotel Friedheim, making us the fourth generation to run the hotel. We give our best efforts to make the hotel Friedheim a unique and friendly family-like holiday experience. Just like his father Alfred, Freddy Zimmermann «spoils» his guests with his culinary talents. With much joy, we are celebrating 100 years of Hotel Friedheim and hope and you will come and drink a toast to it with us.

Sesam - Hospitality Award > 2004

We were awarded the prize as the most hospitable hotel.

The "Gade" > 2011

Renovation of the old stable into the new "Gade". Two new restaurants, a cosy lounge, panorama terrace and 2 Gade and 4 gallery-rooms enhance the Hotel Friedheim.
