ZURICH: As a “metropolis of experiences” by the water, with a magnificent view of the snowcapped Alps on the horizon, Zurich offers a unique mixture of attractions: over 50 museums and more than 100 art galleries, international fashion labels and the most flamboyant and lively nightlife in Switzerland. The historic tradition of merchant guilds in Zurich dates back to the Middle Ages and set the stage for Zurich’s having become a leading global city and among the world’s largest financial centers. The Bahnhofstrasse – Zurich’s shopping mile, with its boutiques, restaurants, banks and jewelry stores – has been called the Champs Elysee of Switzerland.
The Dolder Grand: The Dolder Grand’s elevated location, between the pulsating life of the city and a refreshingly natural green zone, provides a spectacular view of the city of Zurich, the lake and the Alps. Built in 1897 as a place of relaxation and regeneration for people in the city in need of rest, the hotel still serves that purpose for its guests. After an extensive renovation in 2008, the Dolder Grand, with its 173 luxurious rooms and suites, re-opened having combined the hotel’s historic main building of 1899 with modern architectural accoutrements. Its meeting rooms and ballrooms – some as large as 7,500 sq. ft. and many with imposing cupola ceilings, parquet floors and wide floor to ceiling windows – offer generous lawn and south facing views.
