Widder Hotel Top View

Zurich’s Widder Hotel, built on the site of Roman and Celtic ruins, comprises nine medieval houses decorated with 15th-century frescoes. Given its historic depth, it is not surprising that architect Tilla Theus’s painstaking transformation took more than ten years. Every room is individually styled to mix the past, represented in the unusual circular rooms and passages, which refer to the Roman well uncovered during construction; and the modern, seen in furnishings created by such design greats as Charles and Ray Eames, and Frank Lloyd Wright. The Widder Bar offers over 300 single-malt whiskeys and is well-known in the jazz world, presenting stars like Diana Krall and Benny Green during the bi-annual concert series.

Our intimate hotel is a place with a truly singular personality – for travellers who love being surrounded by the very best life has to offer. In the Widder Hotel, every guest is someone special, every room is unique and every stay is a new homecoming. Luxury, savoir-vivre and a warm welcome are waiting for you at your stylish new home-from-home in Zurich. Guest rooms, suites and social areas feature a union of historic elegance with modern art and furnishings. Eight sophisticated function rooms offer inspiring settings for a corporate event, family celebration or gathering of friends.

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 But all our luxury accommodation shared among all these are high quality materials and a host of historical references.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.

Widder Bar and Kitchen

The Widder Bar & Kitchen 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. Our Swiss Executive Chef Tino Staub has dedicated himself to discovering interesting and reinterpreted flavours, which are then skilfully paired with the art of mixology in the Widder Bar & Kitchen.

Widder Hotel Breakfast

Breakfast At The Widder Hotel

In a space with the mouthwatering aromas of fresh coffee and oven-warm pastries, we go the extra mile to make sure you start the day in pleasurable style. Bircher muesli, porridge, eggs in all their variety, perfect bagels and more: our generous regional and international breakfasts, served in our AuGust boucherie, have something for everyone. We include plenty of organic options and healthy alternatives, and when the weather is fine guests can breakfast al fresco on the AuGust patio.

Widder Hotel Restaurant Boucherie August

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.

Widder Hotel Al Fresco

Al Fresco

Al Fresco 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.

Widder Hotel Wirtschaft Zur Schtund

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).

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.
