    Welcome to the Baur au Lac

    Expression of a lifestyle

    The Baur au Lac has the discerning tastes of its guests to thank for the leading position it has maintained for over 175 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 high-end shopping street. While offering the ultimate in comfort and privacy, the 119 rooms and suites have been equipped with every, yet hardly noticeable, technical refinement. 

    We care for your safety

    Please take note of our newly developed safety measures which were implemented for the mutual protection of all our guests and employees.
