Widder Hotel

Widder Hotel

Comprised of eight national monuments-turned-townhomes, the Widder Hotel sits in the heart of Zurich. Medieval touches pair effortlessly with modern chic at this Swiss luxury hotel designed by renowned architect Tilla Theus. Moreover, the ideal location puts guests just steps away from shopping and sightseeing. The Widder Hotel comprises 49 rooms, all individually designed, with luxurious amenities and fine dining that will make truly unforgettable your stay here. 


The Hotel Zurich’s location is ideal for business and leisure travelers alike. Guests staying at the resort will be only a handful of steps away from Bahnhofstrasse's iconic shopping district. Additionally, there is plenty of exploring in the historic Augustiner Quarter, including Grossmunster and the panoramic Lindenhof Park. The train station is a short walk away, as is the city’s financial district.

Guest Rooms 

Home to 35 guest rooms, each one has unique touches that highlight the historical importance of the building. Rooms are all over the eight fully-restored townhouses. Furthermore, all rooms include air conditioning units, internet access, and a minibar. There are also large bathtubs or showers, Nespresso machines, and Bang & Olufsen TVs. 

Worried that the hotel bed won’t be as comfortable as the one you have at home? No worries, as all of the mattresses are fully adjustable. Soothing reading lights will also help you wind down for the night. Besides, sensory lights will softly light your way from the bed to the bathroom if you can’t hold it in the middle of the night.

Room options include the straightforward Design Single Room, with a view overlooking the city. There are also the Design Queen Room and the Courtyard Queen Room, with a secluded view of the hotel’s private courtyard and more contemporary design features. Additionally, the Deluxe Double Room comes with either a king bed or two twins plus a view overlooking the city. 

Junior Suites

Junior Suites come in two different options - the Historic Junior Suite or the Duplex Junior Suite. The Historic Junior Suite comes with a king-sized bed (or two twins). Besides, it is beautifully finished with wood paneling, tile stoves, or seventeenth-century paintings. 

A seating area and large bathroom are also included, in addition to the standard guest room amenities. The Duplex Junior Suite comes in two very different design styles: cozy rustic or new-age urban. Whichever design you choose, you’ll be getting the most elbow room in these two-story suites. Plus, there is a sofa bed in addition to the king-sized bed or two twins.

Full Suite Options

Of the 14 suites available, the Widder Hotel has six full suite options. The Courtyard Suite and Spa say it all in the name: quiet courtyard views plus a separate spa attached to the bathroom makes this option truly luxurious. The Family Suite is perfect for four guests. It has one private bedroom and a separate annex with additional beds. Alternatively, the Historic Suite is perfect for a couple needing more elbow room and larger living space (complete with Le Corbusier sofas) to enjoy their coffee or breakfast. 

The Design Suite boasts an ultra-modern open floor plan, but the real highlight is the rooftop terrace. The Design Loft Suites don’t all have a rooftop terrace. However, they do come with a large soaking tub and a large shower, plus plenty of furniture by Frank Lloyd Wright to relax throughout the suite. 

Moreover, the Penthouse Suite will give views of the city, the Alps, and the lake from its rooftop terrace. It also includes a full dining room, a living room with a fireplace, a Jacuzzi bathtub, plus a guest bathroom.

Full suites come with extra perks as well. These include ironing service, a complimentary bottle of champagne, a free souvenir, room-service breakfast, and of course, VIP treatment. Stays in the Penthouse Suite even include complimentary transportation to and from the airport in one of the hotel’s Mercedes.

Restaurant and Bar

Guests can always rely on good food being available at the Widder Hotel. For a full menu at every meal, there is the Restaurant – Boucherie August. This casual French-inspired restaurant is a part bistro and part brasserie and wholly delicious. Here, guests can enjoy regional favorites, and some will appreciate that meat plays a leading role on the menu. In the warm months, guests can also enjoy their meals outside on the terrace.

The star of the hotel, the Widder Restaurant with 2 Michelin Stars, combines history with modernity, local, and international, both in the menu and design of the open-kitchen restaurant. Open Wednesday-Sunday for dinner only. The menu here includes dishes such as free-range duck. You can also order Norwegian scallops and Australian Wagyu short ribs. 

End (or begin) your night at the Widder Bar. Here, guests can enjoy a glass of wine and classic cocktails set against the backdrop of live jazz music. Open from 11:30 a.m.. Guests can also stop at the bar to grab a quick lunch or a coffee. Moreover, partake in the hotel’s Afternoon Tea Time here. 

Another favorite spot, Zur Schtund, offers street-style food by the same Michelin-starred chef, Chef Stefan Heileman. It specializes in quick, on-the-go menu items such as pork belly bun and sweet potato fries. Zur Schhtund is perfect for guests rushing off to a business meeting or heading out for some shopping and sightseeing.

Spa and Fitness

The Widder Hotel boasts a state-of-the-art spa offering treatments that can be tailored to your specific needs. Choose from a full range of massages, a body wrap, holistic facials, or a foot massage. There is also a gym on-site that is available to guests of the hotel 24/7. The fitness center boasts Technogym equipment that will be just what you need during your stay. Or, you can schedule a session with one of the hotel’s personal trainers. 

Other Amenities

Free high-speed wi-fi comes standard in every room. There is a business center available, as well as an onsite parking garage. In addition to the gym and spa, the hotel also boasts its own library. Room service, too, is available to all guests. Rooms also have bathrobes and Widder-branded bath essentials (including a soothing foot cream).


By staying at the Widder Hotel, guests enjoy a complimentary Guest Card, which gives them access to activities throughout the city. Additionally, you can catch a ride on the hotel boat and explore many shops and restaurants along the water. Because of where the hotel is located, guests can quickly and easily explore the many restaurants, boutiques, and bars that decorate this historic district. There is also a beautiful lake nearby as well as river pools for guests to explore.


The historic buildings that makeup the Widder Hotel guarantee a unique experience – modern design embedded with medieval touches. The fine dining onsite and nearby, combined with the plethora of boutiques and the area’s natural beauty, will leave you completely satisfied. For the best experience in one of Zurich’s luxury hotels, stay at the Widder Hotel.
