“Luxury on the Limmat”

A rare breed of stork may have given the hotel its name some 660 years ago (yes you read that right – the hotel dates back to 1357), but it’s for different unique reasons that Storchen Zürich still sees a steady stream of visitors flocking to her doors. Thanks to her historic nature, each of the 66 recently-refurbed rooms are a bit different, and it’s just as well, because we’re also all a bit different too. With an enviable address in the old town, overlooking the river, the location is superb, and the classy service on point.

The MD's Top Recommendations

Jörg Arnold
Jörg Arnold
Managing Director, The City & Lake Resort (Storchen Zurich, Widder Hotel and Alex Lake Zürich)

Jörg is a shining example of why “Swiss hospitality” enjoys such an esteemed reputation. When it comes to anything about his native Switzerland, hospitality or not, he is happy to share and connect. He is on the executive committee of the Swiss Hotel Association and was also the former president of the Zürich Hoteliers Association. In 2017, under his watch, and with a team of over 400 workers, the 660-year-old Storchen Zürich underwent a top to bottom transformation that took incredibly just six weeks to complete.

Pedalo
Pedalo
"Exploring the city of Zurich from a different perspective? Relax and unwind on the lake - let us make it possible. Enjoy the sun and the unique atmosphere on Lake Zurich with our very own pedal boats. Games, fun and sport all in one for the family or a little more romantic - just the two of you. P.S. our insider tip? Pick up a picnic basket with the finest delicacies at our reception and enjoy it on Lake Zurich."
Zurich Old Town
Zurich Old Town
"In the old town of Zurich, you will not only discover our two hotels, the Widder and the Storchen, but also many other magical places. For example, the Lindenhof, the city's former guard tower, narrow alleys that lead to architectural showpieces and small shops that guarantee the best souvenirs in the city with their own manufactories."
Boat
Boat
"The hotel's own boat from Alex Lake Zurich connects the shore of Lake Zurich in Thalwil with downtown Zurich, where the Widder Hotel and the Storchen Zurich await you. As a hotel guest of the City & Lake Resort, you benefit from the ride from the heart of Zurich back to the Alex and vice versa. Also for a short apero stop or the dinner date an unforgettable experience. Book your place now directly at the reception with our concierge."
Lindt
Lindt
"The museum of the Lindt chocolate factory, which opened in 2020, is idyllically located in Rüschlikon on the lake. As soon as you arrive, you can smell the chocolate from the street and that promises only good things: the centre of the museum is probably the highest and largest chocolate fountain in the world...a feast for the eyes of young and old. Our concierge will be happy to organise tickets and transfers."
Boat trip on the lake
Boat trip on the lake
"A classic in Zurich: the boat trip on the lake. The departure point is always on Bürkliplatz, the city's lake shore. The tours are variable in their duration - from 90 minutes to 4 hours, everything is possible. You can choose where to get off the boat: if you particularly like a certain place, you can leave the ship at any time and set off on an expedition."
