Baur au Lac, Zurich
Opened in 1844 and operated by the same family ever since, this property has hosted the likes of Joan Miró and Plácido Domingo. The “wonderfully located hotel” is set in a garden near the Bahnhofstrasse shopping drag and looks onto Lake Zurich and the Alps. “Beautiful rooms” mix Art Deco, Louis XVI, and Regency styles and are individually decorated in neutral tones with red, purple, and teal accents. “Staff have a way of making you feel at home—and my, what a home!” Rive Gauche is a chic Mediterranean restaurant, while the seasonal Rive Gauche Terrasse is a popular open-air spot for chilled cocktails on warm summer nights.
The Baur au Lac has the discerning tastes of its guests to thank for the leading position it has maintained for more than 170 years in the international luxury hotel industry. Set in its own park, the hotel enjoys a unique location overlooking the lake and the Alps – and yet is still but a few minutes’ walk from the Paradeplatz financial district and the Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich’s celebrated shopping high street. While offering the ultimate in comfort and privacy, the rooms and suites have been equipped with every, yet hardly noticeable technical refinement. The large marble bathrooms with heated floor and daylight match up to the highest demands of comfort, design and equipment.
