The chirping of birds as you make your way through the hotel’s garden to the lobby sets the stage for a stay that promises to be anything but ordinary.

Zurich’s fabled Baur au Lac might sit in the heart of the city, but it feels worlds away… The Baur au Lac is not the Zurich you know. It’s a quieter side of the city, with a lakeside setting and a warm elegance that only hints at its 175-year-old history. This is the grandest of the palace hotels this side of Switzerland, and designer Pierre-Yves Rochon did a wonderful job maintaining its aristocratic feel with deep, swirly carpets, oil paintings on the walls and beds with padded leather headboards. Then, of course, the lobby bar and the light-flooded Pavillon restaurant enclosed by glass are attractions in their own right, while the Terrace, with its statement lighting and banquettes in shades of lurid green is the city’s summer hot spot for light meals, iced cocktails and spectacular views. For a taste of old-world luxury close to everything you want to see in Zurich, the Baur au Lac is a magnificent place to hole up, dine, see or be seen.
