Baur au Lac Park

Baur au Lac’s carefully maintained heritage building, perched on the edge of Lake Zurich, is located within its own landscaped park. The vibrant green of the park with its towering trees, some of which are heritage-protected, blends with the deep blue of Lake Zurich and the glowing white snow-capped Alps on the horizon, creating a unique backdrop which our guests can enjoy during a walk or while having a drink on the adjacent terrace. In the summer months, the Baur au Lac Park is also the first address in Zurich for exclusive outdoor events and glittering parties.

Baur au Lac Honey

Since 2016, the Baur au Lac Park has been home to 80,000 gentle honey bees. Our black and yellow employees reside in a miniature version of the hotel. From there, they buzz out to diligently collect nectar for our Baur au Lac honey in Zurich's green spaces, which our guests can then enjoy at the breakfast table or purchase as a sweet souvenir at the kiosk.  Did you know that city honey has the reputation of containing less pesticides and fungicides? The variety of flowers in the city, in contrast to many monocultures in the countryside, also gives the honey a particularly varied taste.
