The hotel is approximately 10 minutes walking distance away from the train station.

Coming out of the main entrance of the station, you will see the lake straight ahead of you and to the left the river Reuss.
Head towards the river and you will see a covered wooden bridge with a big water tower in the middle of it.
Go to the bridge but don't cross it.
Carry along the river until you come to a second covered bridge.
Walk over this one to cross the river.
Arriving on the other side, turn left and follow the river again, about hundred metres along you will find the Tourist Hotel.

Or....take the Nr.9 bus and get out at Bruggligasse and you will see the Tourist Hotel at the Riverside.
