The Dolder Grand is the perfect environment for people who are looking for pleasure, exclusivity and relaxation: 173 luxurious rooms and suites, exquisite cuisine, a spa covering 4,000 square metres and generous banqueting and seminar facilities. The original “Curhaus” dating from 1899 presents itself anew as the luxury-class City Resort. Its elevated location, between the pulsating life of the city and a refreshingly natural green zone, provides a magnificent view of the city of Zurich, the lake and the Alps.
The interiors in the Main Building create a sense of history through their eclectic and subtle combinations. All rooms here are equipped with luxurious white-marble bathrooms with separate bath and shower areas. The historic balconies give the rooms a turn-of-the-century zeitgeist. In the two newly built wings – the Spa Wing and the Golf Wing – the interior design and luxurious bathrooms of sand-coloured Jura limestone exude a modern zeitgeist. The floor-to-ceiling windows create a generous sense of space.

Highlights & Reviews
- On a hillside a 15-minute funicular and tram journey from central Zurich, the Dolder brands itself as a ‘city resort’ and has an impressive roster of facilities to back up the claim: a golf course stands adjacent, there’s space for a 4,000sq metre spa and an ice rink opens on the grounds each winter. The setting is even better on a clear day, when Lake Zurich can be seen glistening from below and the snow-capped Alps, distant but still so majestic, loom over the horizon.
- Dating from 1899 and reopened in 2008 following the construction of a vast Norman Foster-designed extension, the Dolder’s traditional core is now enveloped by two elegant curved wings. The juxtaposition works surprisingly well, but the property’s most dominant design feature is its unparalleled collection of museum-quality artworks, strewn seemingly casually along corridors and in courtyards. Watch out for a Dali on the way to dinner, a Botero sculpture by the spa and dozens more priceless pieces by artists such as Henry Moore, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring.
- All bases are covered here. Rooms in the original Dolder are traditionally styled, with hand-painted wallpaper, gleaming white-marble bathrooms and, sometimes, an integrated sauna. In the newer spa and golf wings, floor-to-ceiling windows capitalise on the wonderful views, bathrooms are finished in sand-coloured Jura limestone and technological accoutrements work seamlessly.
