Rooms & Suites: 120
One of the world's most prestigious five-star hotels, the Baur au Lac dates back to 1844 and is still owned by the original founding family.
The likes of Mark Chagall, Henry Moore, Alfred Hitchcock, Sophie Loren, Audrey Hepburn and Bridgette Bardot have all stayed at the Baur au Lac, and from the day it opened its doors it has been an example of luxury, elegance and discretion.
The 120-room hotel is a short walk from Zurich's world-famous Bahnhofstrasse, the central Paradeplatz, Lake Zurich and the city's bustling financial district. The hotel recently completed an approximately $41 million renovation, revamping its Pavillon and Terrasse restaurants as well as various rooms and suites. It is also home to Rive Gauche restaurant, a local hot spot.
