Baur au Lac
One of the most famous hotels in Zürich, the Baur au Lac sits in stately grandeur
in its own park, just metres away from both the lake and
Bahnhofstrasse’s high-octane shopping.
Behind the neoclassical façade, a constant stream of renovations have kept it a favourite of European Royals, composers, artists and film stars over the decades, not to mention a loyal clientele of frequent business travelers. A recent round of refurbishment saw the creation of the stunning fine-dining Pavillon restaurant and 22 new rooms. While the entrance hall and corridors have a traditional feel, the newly renovated rooms are a stylish blend of Art Deco-influenced design and state of the art technology. Spacious marble bathrooms complete the picture.
In summer, guests and locals alike seek respite from the heat at the stylish outdoor Terrasse bar and café. In winter, the darkly chic Rive Gauche restaurant is popular for its classic French menu and stellar martinis.
One of Switzerland’s oldest family-owned luxury hotels, emphasis is placed on superlative service, with all staff required to speak three languages. Classic luxury.
