About Us

The Baur au Lac has the discerning tastes of its guests to thank for the leading position it has maintained for 173 years in the international luxury hotel industry. Extensive renovationupholds this tradition and guarantees continuity. 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. The hotel is only a stone';s throw away from all major cultural and tourist attractions.15 minutes from Zurich international airport and 5 minutes from Zurich main station.

119 recently renovated and luxuriously appointed rooms and suitesoverlooking the lake and the Alps, the romantic river Schanzengraben, the city or the courtyard.

The recently refurbished PavillonRestaurant, awarded one Michelin Star and 18 GaultMillau points, is now open all year round. Star architect Pierre-Yves Rochon has glazed the magnificent rotunda on almost every side, drawing Nature';s seasons into his ingenious design concept. Exquisite créations are matched to a T by the restaurant';s excellent service. An encyclopedic wine list reflects the unrivaled expertise of the Baur au Lac';s own wine cellar.

The Rive Gauche';s light, mediterranean-style grilled specialties attract locals and visitors from around the world - the young in body and the young at heart. "Easy-going" is an adjective that springs to mind. The funishings pick up on the century-old grill room tradition, smartly counter-pinted by ultra-modern pistachio leather sofas. Though the inspiration given by top addresses in New York, Paris and London is unmistakeable, the Rive Gauche still subtly asserts itw own distinctive flair. Travelers eager to put their finger on the pulse of Zurich have come to the right place.

The Terrasseis the most exclusive place in Zurich to while away those hot summer days and lazy, hazy evenings. Refreshing cocktails and ice-cold Champagne are served as apéritifs in the decidedly chic lounges. Small snacks and light meals are served till midnight by a friendly cosmopolitan atmosphere of grandeur and extravagance.

Spectacular views of lake Zurich and the alps make the Baur au Lac parkthe ideal setting for the annual "Art in the Park" exhibition. Amid the sights, sounds and scents of early summer, monumental sculptures crafted by such artistic luminaries as Louise Bourgeois, Fernando Botero, Robert Indiana and George Condo are showcased here as a prelude to the world-renowned "Art Basel" art show. In the warmer months of the year, private parties and business functions begin here with an apéritif or cocktail reception in Zurich';s most attractive private park.

Amenities included for all guests:

Fruits and flowers on the room

Complimentary minibar

Baur au Lac - Zurich 2017

A definite luxury hotel experience! Beautiful setting and lovely rooms! Great AC (it was 95 degrees when we were there), and a most accommodating staff! No spa (fitness center only), but the concierge can arrange for in room massage, which I did take advantage of, and it was fantastic, albeit very expensive, even by luxury hotel/spa standards. Beautiful room and bathroom. Modern amenities in an old world setting. Would love to return some day!

Great location. Staff, services and meals were all wonderful. We were disappointed that we did not get the lake view room that we had requested AND paid for because of being placed in a lower level room.
