Widder Hotel

Rennweg 7, Zürich, Zurich, 8001, Switzerland

Fodor’s Expert Review

Zürich's most captivating hotel was created when 10 adjacent medieval houses were gutted and combined—now steel fuses with ancient stone and timeworn wood. Behind every door is a fascinating mix of old and new: a guest room could mix restored 17th-century frescoes and stone floors with a leather bedspread and halogen bell-jar lights. Set in the heart of Zürich's historic quarter, many of the houses look out into a communal courtyard, and others flaunt views of the Rennweg or the Augustinerkirche. The popular Widder Bar has expanded to include a two-story restaurant with open kitchen and a regularly changing, innovative menu.
