Where to Stay in Zurich: Baur au Lac

The most beautiful hotel in Zurich, Switzerland... the Baur au Lac

If you are looking for the most amazing place to stay in Zurich, with spectacular views of the Alps, surrounded by a peaceful park on the shores of the lake, yet still right in the heart of Zurich, look no further than the Baur au Lac.

For over 170 years, the Baur au Lac has held a reputation as one of the leading luxury hotels in the world and has become an institution in Zurich.

We were greeted in the room with a delicious tray of delicate pastries upon arrival.

We arrived in the evening, and our gorgeous room had already been turned down for the night.

Loved this huge mirror in the bathroom! The water pressure in the shower was amazing. Perfect after a long day of travel and sight-seeing.

The lobby is the perfect spot for a quiet meeting with friends after work, or a long day of sight-seeing.

The Baur au Lac even has their own chocolate! This is near the reception area, you can grab a piece anytime you like. Dangerous! :)

The sunrise view from our room in the morning looking out over the lake was unparalleled. I definitely hope to visit Zurich again soon and stay here for more than just one night!! And definitely have a meal in their Michelin-starred restaurant!

    Grab and go chocolates would be the death of me! Beautiful pictures!! Love reading about all your travels! I need to ask because I have a few trips coming up, what’s your go to shoe for all the walking you do? I was thinking of purchasing a pair of Tieks…but the price tag has me second guessing! Do you have a go to shoe brand that are not only functional but cute for all the walking you do?

Do you have a question or comment?
