Hotel Baur au Lac

Hotel Baur au Lac

Opened by former Austrian pastry chef turned hotelier Johannes Baur in 1844, the internationally renowned Baur au Lac, has been owned by the same family for six generations. As an institution with an illustrious 174-year history steeped in tradition, the impeccable old-world service and charm exist in abundance. Set in its own landscaped park, the hotel enjoys a unique location overlooking Lake Zurich and the Alps, but still within minutes of the Paradeplatz financial district and the Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich’s celebrated high-end shopping street. Offering the ultimate in comfort and privacy, the 119 rooms and suites at the Baur au Lac have been designed and equipped with discerning luxury travellers in mind. Rooms are decorated in a blend of styles devised by designers Frederic d’Haufayt and Pierre-Yves Rochon. Rooms and suites include contemporary amenities such as an iPad for organising room service, underfloor floor heating and televisions by the bath. The walls are adorned with Miro-Esque artworks and the tabletops feature elegant Chinese vases and other flourishes from the Far East. Whilst the tables in each room, suite, and throughout the hotel are adorned by flowers arranged by Head Florist Loren Fischer. Despite being situated in the heart of the city’s celebrated old town, two of Zurich’s best restaurants are within the walls of the Baur au Lac.  

The Pavillon Restaurant and Head Chef Laurent Eperon have received 1 star by Guide Michelin and 18 Gault&Millau points. This recently refurbished fine dining restaurant features modern cuisine with innovative interpretations of haute cuisine created with traditional techniques. Almost completely enclosed by glass, the rotunda which houses the restaurant, built by star architect Pierre-Yves Rochon also offers fantastic views on the surrounding park and river. Whilst the Baur au Lacs second restaurant, River Gauche is a more relaxed affair with casual fine dining for a chic evening in the city.
