Baur au Lac

    The Baur au Lac’s 160-year reign as the best accommodation in Zurich, Switzerland, can be attributed in part to the hotel’s equivalent of pole position: on Lake Zurich (au lac) and fronting the Bahnhofstrasse, which is simultaneously one of the world’s great financial districts and shopping boulevards. Greetings by the Baur’s staff members—much like the confections from the hotel’s in-house chocolatier that they leave on your pillow—are perfectly Swiss. Gourmet restaurants alternate by season (Le Pavillon in summer, Le Restaurant Français in winter), and the hotel hosts brunches and receptions in its surrounding private park. Accommodations Of the 82 rooms and 42 suites, no two are alike. Facilities Fitness center overlooks the serene Lake Zurich from rooftop level. Club Diagonal is regionally famous for its members-only status and luxurious clientele. Dining With five seasonally appropriate options for fine Dining, one simply has to consult a calendar to know where to join the crowd. Rates From $700 to about $2,500.
