The Dolder Grand

The Dolder Grand, Zurich

Situated high above Zurich in a lush forest setting, this elegant Belle Époque landmark offers expansive views of the city, lake and — on clear days — the Alps. The architecture may bring to mind Heidi, but the interiors (which include contemporary wings) are worthy of the most cutting edge, urban pied-à-terre. Guest rooms make beautiful use of hardwoods, marble, Jura limestone and earth-tone fabrics, while four stunning signature suites are inspired by timeless trendsetters — The Rolling Stones, actress Giulietta Masina (wife of Federico Fellini), Swiss plastics sculptor lberto Giacometti and the conductor Herbert von Karajan. Of note for those in search of pampering: the chic, 4,000-square-meter Dolder Grand Spa.
