By car

Take the exit for “Bellinzona Sud, Lago Maggiore” from the A2 motorway and follow the road signs for Locarno. In Locarno, follow the shoreline of the lake in the direction of Muralto. The Hotel Lago Maggiore is located on the lake promenade, at Viale Verbano 25, in Locarno-Muralto.

By train

Locarno can be reached by way of a stunning train journey through the Alps, taking around two hours from Zurich or Lucerne, and three hours from Basel or Bern via the new Alptransit Gotthard Base Tunnel.

The Hotel & Lounge Lago Maggiore can be seen on your left as you arrive into Locarno by train. Once you have arrived, follow the road alongside platform one of the station for two minutes, and then head down towards the lake. Here you will find the main entrance to the Hotel.
