Christmas time at the Baur au Lac

Festive prelude at the Baur au Lac

More than a tinge of color creeps into the foliage as summer bows out and the dazzling, golden-hued spectacle of fall takes the stage. It is the season of Thanksgiving, a time to thank nature for its gifts and prepare for the onset of cooler days. Before you know it, the first snowflakes are wafting across the sky, the shop windows are dressed in their winter woolies and Christmas – like every year – is knocking at the door. And when Zurich's tallest Christmas tree is all aglow in the Baur au Lac Park, you know for sure: The festive season is upon us.

For the third year in a row, the Chalet au Lac transplants the feel of a log cabin into the heart of the city. Afternoon tea in the lobby provides welcome respite from shopping expeditions. And then come the real festivities, celebrated at the Baur au Lac with exclusive gala dinners and our traditional New Year's Eve Ball. Take a moment to browse through this brochure and get in the mood for the most magical time of year.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
