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 173 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.
As a first class hotel in Zurich, the Baur au Lac incorporates an
exclusive culinary experience for every taste.
Head Chef Laurent Eperon creates fresh, dynamic and contemporary cuisine. The Pavillon has been awarded "GaultMillau Aufsteiger des Jahres 2017", one Michelin-Star and 18 GaultMillau points.
Heart of the Baur au Lac
We are looking forward to welcoming you at “Le Hall”, the heart of the Baur au Lac. Enjoy the new ambiance while having your morning coffee or at a convivial cocktail gathering.
Fine Casual Dining
A sparkling blend of chic restaurant and bar, the Rive Gauche gives straight onto the city center – the ideal place for hotel guests to mingle with Zurich’s youthful, engaging society.
The Rive Gauche Terrasse is the most exclusive place in Zurich to while away those hot summer days and lazy, hazy evenings. Refreshing cocktails and ice-cold Champagne are served as aperitifs in the decidedly chic lounges.
Magnificent new suites have been crafted on four floors.
Each one combines choice materials with exquisite furnishings, the whole subtly enhanced by truly inspired lighting. With a masterful eye for design, the interior designer Frédéric d’Haufayt has given each suite an elegance all its own.
We attach great importance to spacious facilities, superlative craftsmanship and the use of only the finest materials.
The individually styled Junior Suites vary between the Art Deco, Louis XVI and Regency styles, combined with contemporary elements and exclusive French, Italian and English materials.
We are back
Visit us and linger at the Rive Gauche Terrasse. Small snacks and light meals are served till midnight by a friendly, outgoing team. Soak up the distinctly cosmopolitan atmosphere with light summer snacks, refreshing drinks and home-made sundaes.
