Dolder Grand

For this week’s Venue Spotlight, Michaela has chosen The Dolder Grand, Zurich!

Why is The Dolder Grand great for meetings and events?

The hotel has a variety of meeting and event spaces, both indoor and outdoor. The Oval Ballroom is a beautiful space located within the centre of the main house. The meeting spaces within the main house tend to be more traditional, whereas the spaces within the wings of the hotel are more modern and contemporary – something to suit everyone.

The venue has won more than 50 awards since opening in 2008 and has a variety of dining experiences, including a number of restaurants and pop-ups with various Michelin stars and Gault Millau points.

The hotel has an award-winning spa encompassing over 4,000 sqm – it is one of the most exclusive wellness facilities in Switzerland. There are treatments and services to meet your every need, including the Aqua Zone, meditation rooms, and Spa Library and Shop.

The Dolder Grand alsohas over 100 pieces of well-known art – probably the most striking piece, Andy Warhol’s eleven-meter-wide “Big Retrospective Painting” towers over the reception. The Dolder Grand offers its guests an art iPad that guides them through the works of art on display in the hotel and provides more information about the artists.

The hotel is easily accessible as it is just 20 minutes from Zurich Airport and close to several train stations. The city centre is only a 10-minute drive and the hotel offer regular shuttle buses on a complimentary basis.

Why Michaela loves this venue:

My absolute favourite venue to hold an event, I was completely surprised by Zurich as a destination and thought it was a beautiful city to hold an event. The Dolder Grand itself is an amazing venue which combines the tradition and history of the main house with a modern and contemporary design within the two wings. The views of the city from the hotel are amazing and it is only a 10-minute drive into the centre. The Dolder Grand Spa is beautiful, it is an award-winning spa and one of the most exclusive wellness facilities in Switzerland. The service provided by the hotel was second to none throughout the planning stages of the event, whilst onsite and post event.
