property overview

The Baur au Lac boasts a history as breathtaking as its Alp and lakeside setting.

Zurich’s venerable hotel, Baur au Lac, boasts a history as breathtaking as its Alp and lakeside setting. Opened in 1844 by Johannes Baur, the property hosted the world-premiere of Wagner's Die Walküre, with Richard himself performing, and Alfred Nobel’s former secretary, Bertha von Suttner, conceived of the Nobel Peace Prize in one of the hotel’s salons. Today, a cast of royals, actors and musicians are drawn to the grande-dame hotel for its stunning views, private park on the lakeshore and location to Zurich's historic sites and the Bahnhofstrasse, a fabulous shopping street. Of the four dining rooms, the al fresco Terrasse restaurant is the city’s summer hot spot, where locals and guests flock to mingle over light meals, cocktails, and spectacular views from canopy-covered tables.
View Event Venues Information
On Saturday October 29, 2016 the “Kispi-Ball” will be held at the Baur au Lac. This important charity event is done in co-operation with the Children’s hospital in Zurich for a fundraising cause. Please be aware that the event will take place in all banqueting facilities of the hotel. Therefore, the usual calm atmosphere cannot be guaranteed. The restaurant Rive Gauche will be open during normal opening hours.
The hotel would like to thank you for your kind understanding. Now through December 31, 2016: The town of Zurich is renewing the quay bulkhead at the property opposite Baur au Lac. The hotel anticipates punctual construction noise over the day during the week. The hotel hopes for your understanding and apologizes for any inconvenience caused.
