Widder Hotel

Widder Hotel

The Widder Hotel is situated in a quiet part of the historic center of Zürich, close to the financial and business district and just around the corner from Bahnhofstrasse, the prestigious shopping mile. The Hotel is located in the middle of the Augustiner Quarter, named after an Augustinian monastery built in the 13th century but no longer existed. The historic townhouses which accommodate the Widder Hotel are national monuments. They were carefully restored between 1990 and 1995.

The Widder Hotel comprises 42 guest rooms and 7 suites, some with their own roof terrace. All rooms are located in eight carefully restored historic buildings. Each room is fully air-conditioned, including two phone lines, Public Wireless Lan, modem- and fax connection. Furthermore, each room has a Bang & Olufsen Flat Screen TV (more than TV 40 stations in various languages) and Stereo, Safe, Minibar. A small state of the art gym is available for complimentary use 24 hours a day.

The Widder Restaurant consists of two parts with completely different interiors. The same refined culinary pleasures await you in both settings. Don’t miss the Wirtschaft Zur Schtund, a popular meeting place where you can enjoy the company of local people in a relaxed pub-like atmosphere. At the tastefully renovated Widder Bar, you can enjoy live jazz performances. Furthermore, the Restaurant - Boucherie August, a trendy and casual brasserie-style restaurant with an open kitchen, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner 365 days a year.

Rooms & Suites - Where design meets the Middle Ages. 35 Rooms - 14 Suites - 49 Subtle Differences. Behind every door in the Widder Hotel opens a new world. No suites are the same as the others. All rooms are individually decorated. There are wooden ceiling beams in one suite, an antique tiled stove, or grisaille paintings in the other delicate frescoes or elegant stucco. And yet they have one thing in common, high-quality design and a lot of historical traces. Medieval is in only the building substance. Otherwise, having the latest technology and the highest comfort level, every bed can be adjusted, the mattresses are adjustable in hardness, and a flexible LED reading light gives you pleasant light in the evening. Sensory night lights point the way from sleep to the bathroom in the dark. And if you already like to know what's going on in the bathroom in the morning, take a look in the mirror: The mirror TV set is integrated there. There is also a stereo, Nespresso machine, minibar, multimedia TV, Wi-Fi and telephone. Stay unique.

Culinary & Enjoyment - When food becomes an experience. Food should not only surprise the taste, as all master chefs agree. Whether Swiss classic or French-inspired haute cuisine with an Asian touch, let yourself be inspired by the chefs' creations! Stay unique."Widder Bar & Kitchen" - Is the heart of the Widder Hotel in Zurich and cleverly combines the city's history with the modern flair, which presents itself over design and culinary art. The Swiss executive chef Tino Staub is committed to finding interesting and reinterpreted flavors skillfully paired with Mixology art in the Widder Bar & Kitchen. "Economy For a Schtund" - Come in the cozy parlor. The simplest things in life are often the most beautiful. A relaxed meal with friends. Comfort food that awakens a warm feeling of home. A good wine for good talks. You will find all of this in the rustic "Wirtschaft Zur Schtund." Typical Swiss dishes at attractive prices can be found here - raclette and rösti, tarte flambée and fondue, quality open wines and draft beer.

Restaurant - Boucherie August - The best address for traditional carnivores. Boucherie, Brasserie, Bistro - August combines all this in one place. The menu includes excellent meat and sausage specialties. Rustic yet chic is the ambiance, in which chef Tino Staub makes classics of regional cuisine and even almost forgotten meat dishes again restaurant-fine. When did you last eat boiled beef, tripe, and rind stomach? Those who like to try will be happy here. There are also classics such as meat cheeses, homemade pies, terrines, and tartars for all others. International delicacies such as Prosciutto Culatello con cotenna from Parma in Italy and trendy dishes like Beef Jerky with Swiss Alpine herbs complete the offer. "The delicious salads and fresh fish dishes are definitely something for you. In winter, the bustle of the Rennweg can be comfortably observed through the large windows - in the warm summer months, the terrace attracts. Stay unique!
