Widder Hotel is an art-and-design masterpiece in the heart of Zurich’s Old Town. Composed of nine medieval townhomes built on the site of Roman and Celtic ruins ingeniously joined together through modern passageways, the Widder balances impossibilities in style. While architectural elements, like carved beams and frescoed walls highlight its historic heritage, cutting-edge curated interiors push thrilling, edgy boundaries. It boasts a prime Old Town location, steps from the bustling Bahnhofstrasse and an easy walk to Lake Zurich, but it never feels crowded or impersonal. Each of its 49 rooms has a one-of-a-kind design, complete with exquisite collector-quality furniture and paintings, but the atmosphere is homey and relaxed. And the restaurants and bar easily stand on their own as some of the best in the city. The boutique hotel’s 35 rooms and 14 suites each feature their own theme and design and range from 32 to 65 sqm.
The celebrated Widder Restaurant (15 Gault Millau points) serves Continental cuisine, while the Widder Bar is among the most popular meeting places in the city with live music and a unique selection of over 1000 spirits, including over 300 varieties of single malt whisky. Regular first-class concerts in a chic, intimate club atmosphere also make the Widder Bar a firm favourite with jazz fans. AuGust restaurant is designed to look and feel like a butcher shop, but the hearty meat-based cuisine is invigorating and inventive, and the place is always packed. Wirtschaft Zur Schtund specializes in Swiss comfort food, like raclette and fondue in a casual tavern atmosphere.
The Widder Hotel comprises 35 guest rooms and 14 suites, some with their own roof terrace. All rooms are located in nine carefully restored historic buildings. In the Widder Hotel, there’s a new world to discover behind every door. Each suite has a different layout and all rooms are individually decorated. One suite may feature venerable oak beams, another an antique tiled stove, grisaille murals, delicate frescos or elegant stucco. But all our luxury accommodation shared among all these are high quality materials and a host of historical references. On the medieval framework we have layered contemporary design, cutting-edge technology and unparalleled comfort: each bed is adjustable, the mattress can be varied from firm to soft, and pleasant light is provided by directional LED reading lamps. Movement-sensitive night-lights guide guests from bed to bathroom, and to find out what’s going on in the world during your morning ablutions, just glance in the mirror at the integrated TV. Each room is also equipped with a Nespresso machine, minibar, multimedia TV, wifi and telephone.

The different restaurants are unique at the hotel itself – from the modern and trendy Widder Restaurant & Bar to the classic and rustic-chic Restaurant Boucherie AuGust. The Widder Bar & Kitchen serves its famous drinks and flavors from around the world. The Restaurant Boucherie AuGust is a casual hotspot for meat lovers, as well as the Swiss tavern, Wirtschaft zur Schtund. Uncomplicated, bold and individual – that’s how we would describe the culinary concept at the Widder Restaurant (15 Gault Millau points). And the extensively stocked wine cellar has something to satisfy even the most demanding wine connoisseur.
Widder Restaurant & Bar
The Widder Restaurant & Bar forms the heart of the Widder Hotel in Zurich. It unites the city’s rich history with a modern flair, reflected in its unmistakable design and cuisine. Stefan Heilemann is known for his unique style of cooking: The combination of highest product quality, excellent cooking craftsmanship, a willingness to experiment and his characteristic hint of “acidity” open up new worlds of taste and turn a meal into an unforgettable gourmet adventure.
Restaurant Boucherie August
Boucherie, brasserie, bistro – AuGust embodies them all. The menu here showcases the finest meat and sausages. In an atmosphere of rustic chic, chef Tino Staub prepares regional classics and makes even long-neglected parts of the animal thoroughly respectable. Where else nowadays in Zurich could you try boiled beef salad, tripe and brawn? This is a place where a taste for adventure is well rewarded. For everyone else, there are classics such as Leberkaese, home-made pâtés, terrines and pies. Delicacies from other countries, such as prosciutto culatello con cotenna from Italy’s Parma region, and on-trend novelties such as beef jerky with Swiss Alpine herbs complete the menu.
Wirtschaft Zur Schtund
Sometimes the best things in life are also the simplest. A casual dinner with friends, comfort food that gives you a warm glow, a good wine to accompany lively conversation. These are the attractions of our simple tavern ‘Wirtschaft Zur Schtund’. Here the menu emphasises classic Swiss specialities at attractive prices: raclette and rösti, flammkuchen and fondue, draught beer and wine by the glass. All we’re waiting for is you! (entrance on Augustinergasse).
Widder Garden is the idyllic garden paradise with restaurant and summer lounge in the cozy courtyard of the hotel. Chef de cuisine Tino Staub serves summer dishes in the open air at noon and in the evening in the modern ambience: healthy salad bowls, fresh fish and BBQ specialties from the grill. For the cappuccino break after a shopping spree, after work drink or a sundowner, the Summer Lounge is the best meeting place – quiet, cool and shielded from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Hidden in Augustinerhof 1, lies the off location of the Widder Hotel – where the cars of the hotel guests once parked, people now dance and drink from Thursday to Saturday until late into the night. Host Mark Müller ensures with lobster popcorn, truffle toast, DimSum and oysters enjoyable afterwork hours and delicious midnight snacks.
Facilities include an inviting library in stone and wood, its shelves stacked with hardbacks about local history; two restaurants and a bar. A gym, propped up by hefty pillars, contains a good selection of the latest Technogym equipment.
Work out in a relaxed environment at our high-tech fitness centre with state-of-the-art Technogym equipment, open around the clock.
