Visitors can also expect a fine dining experience at The Restaurant—known for its two Michelin stars and 18 Gault Millau points—and at Saltz—acclaimed for its indoor seating, terrace seating, bar, and 14 Gault Millau points.

The hotel, with 51 individual rooms and nine suites, also offers direct access to the warm rooftop infinity pool and spa of the public Thermalbath & Spa Zürich, a wine library, and,
appropriately, Hürlimann beer as a proper tribute.

Marktgasse Hotel District 1
Surrounded by centuries of history, the Marktgasse Hotel makes use of 39 individually furnished rooms to offer visitors a boutique hotel with a tasteful mix of old and new.

Baur au Lac District 1
