The Baur au Lac is one of Switzerland’s grandest hotels. Set in private parkland on the shores of Lake Zurich, at the head of the fashionable Bahnhofstrasse, it has the perfect location for shopping and sightseeing. The hotel has been owned by the same family since it opened in 1844, and it has welcomed royalty, celebrities, and discerning travelers with unequaled hospitality ever since. The beautifully appointed rooms, with sumptuous, classic furnishings , make all guests feel like celebrities, as does the excellent service. In summer months, meals are served in the garden, which overlooks the lake and the Alps beyond.
