Fondue Ahoi

Set sail for a lake cruise of the most enjoyable kind! We are now offering you our exquisite Chalet au Lac cheese fondue aboard a nostalgic vintage boat against the dazzling backdrop of Zurich's old town. 

Only two walking minutes from Baur au Lac, your private captain awaits you on board the Ajax, a Swiss Craft Cruiser dating back to 1936. Enjoy a hearty aperitif inside the cosy cabin or on deck while watching the sun going down and the stars coming out. Then your captain will turn the wheel and take you upstream on the Limmat river, providing you with the whole city skyline experience. At the city hall, you will drop the anchor and take a deep dive into the Caquelon, indulging in fine Swiss cheese. When you have reached the bottom of the pot, the captain will bring you back to your starting point.
