Set in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, Lucerne is already a magnet for English speakers looking to improve their German skills in this idyllic town of 85,000 people.

It's a truly unforgettable experience for its pampered guests.
And the Villa Honegg restaurant, with 14 Gault-Milau points, serves up locally sourced and regional cuisine, making for a perfect blend of hospitality and culinary perfection – and an inspiration for aspiring hospitality students who enrol at one of Swiss Education Group's Lucerne schools.
While both schools offer four starting dates each year, why not opt to start your studies in July so you can enjoy the splendors of summertime in Lucerne while you receive a top-notch education in hospitality.
Another benefit of summer enrolment is more preparation time for Swiss Education Group's bi-annual International Recruitment Forum, held in Montreux each March and October.
