The Dolder Grand, Zurich, Gallery Lounges and Terrazza Suite

Deluxe comfort demands the highest expertise

In a close symbiosis of architecture and logistics, the two new sweeping wings clasp the historical main building in their embrace. The latter is once again clearly oriented to the south and opened up: the entrance is to be found here again as it used to be, and the new Garden Restaurant which fits snugly into the slope offers a magnificent view. The interior of the historical building was restored in line with conservation standards and partially rebuilt. The objective was to design 173 hotel rooms and 450 further rooms completely individually and in accordance with the latest technical know-how. To this must be added a tasteful wellness area, the ballroom with its light dome and restoration of the Dolder to the highest standard.
