A gorgeous lakeside location and a dedication to elegance, comfort, and service have made the Baur au Lac the preferred Zurich destination of artists and aristocrats for over 170 years.

For those not content with the complementary mini-bar, a Rochon-designed, year-round restaurant serves up an impressive array of cocktails.
If the Baur au Lac's walls could talk, they might speak of the Austrian Empress who spent a summer at the hotel, or of Wagner, who premiered the first act of his Die Walküre here. Or of the countless number of intellectuals and artists who have found inspiration at this spot on the shore of Lake Zurich. Or maybe, just maybe, they would stay silent and let the stunning location, luxurious atmosphere, and peerless hospitality speak for themselves.

Situated in its own private park, a stone's throw from the famous Bahnhofstrasse - home to business, banking, and shopping - the Baur au Lac has been hosting elite travelers since 1844. With three spectacular restaurants, ranging from French haute cuisine to light outdoor meals and cocktails, and boasting a Michelin Star, the diversity of culinary choices is outstanding.

In 2009, the hotel completed a $50 million renovation, which increased the number and luxury of its suites and is sure to help keep the Baur au Lac a preferred destination for generations to come.
