Christmas time at the Baur au Lac



The trees have barely shed their few remaining autumn leaves before the festive season is upon us once again, beginning on November 23 with Thanksgiving. Treat yourself and your guests to a turkey perfectly roasted to a crisp Golden brown in the kitchens of the Baur au Lac. Only two days later, our annual Christmas Tree Lighting celebration chimes in the season of advent.

Traditional afternoon tea awaits you in our lobby every afternoon throughout December, providing welcome respite and tranquility after a round of Christmas shopping.

Don't miss this year's highlight, our Chalet au Lac: Get into the mood on our terrace with mulled wine and finish off the casual evening in our Chalet with traditional Swiss dishes - accompanied by the warm service à la Baur au Lac.

On Christmas Eve, our master chefs will once again give free rein to their immense and imaginative skills, gladly spoiling you with creative menus that are the stuff of fantasy. Our sommelier too has composed an exquisite symphony of wines to accompany these culinary delights. Alternatively, feel free to dine à la carte at the Rive Gauche, as usual.

To end the year, we will naturally pull out all the stops (and the corks, of course!). After a festive gala dîner, the grand New Year's Eve Ball will commence in the public spaces of the Baur au Lac. At midnight, we will then raise our glasses together as a sensational fireworks display unfolds above the lake to see in the New Year.

We truly look forward to seeing you!
