Traditional? Modern? Unique. 700 years of history.
Widder Hotel is more than just a design hotel. It is the gem of the Swiss luxury hotel industry, just waiting for you to discover it. Seven hundred years of history are steeped within its walls. Today’s hotel is comprised of nine formerly distinct medieval houses. All the buildings have been carefully restored to ensure they retain their original character. Inside the luxury Widder hotel you will find a striking contrast between historic building features and some of the most prominent modern designs of the 20th century.
All of our 42 guest rooms and suites contain traces of a history stretching back over 700 years. Painted ceiling beams, ornate stone intarsia and antique furniture alongside modern design classics from the likes of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe. And there’s even more art waiting for you right outside your door – our private collection is displayed throughout the house and features original works from Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Alberto Giacometti.
In the restaurant, our young chef is waiting to tempt you with her innovative and contemporary cuisine. Her speciality lies in creating authentic European dishes that will delight even the most demanding of gourmet guests. The Widder Bar is another jewel in our gastronomic crown – with over 1,000 of the finest spirits to choose from in the legendary Library of Spirits, you can while away the evening in a relaxed atmosphere. In spring and autumn, you can also enjoy musical entertainment at our jazz evenings featuring renowned international artists. These evenings are a Zurich institution, just like the Widder bar itself.
The Widder Hotel is a member of Virtuoso, Swiss Deluxe Hotels and Leading Hotels of the World. But still it sets itself apart. Stay unique.
