Excellent service around the clock

and around the world

The concierges at the Baur au Lac are at our guests’ disposal before, during and after their stay. Our guests can be confident in having a trusted provider at their side capable of assisting–no matter where in the world the guest may be situated. The essence of being a Baur au Lac concierge is not to deal merely with the requests anyone could organise. Instead, through their network of relationships in Zurich, Switzerland and the world, the aim is to provide customized and discreet service that guests simply could not experience at any other hotel.

Les Clefs d’Or

professional association of the hotel concierges.

Jérémie Varry is chief concierge at the Baur au Lac and, since 1998, a member of Les Clefs d’Or. The Les Clefs d’Or organization – Union Internationale des Concierges d’Hotels -- has 4,500 members from more than 50 countries. To become a member, an applicant must have reached a minimum age and speak at least two or more foreign languages. Moreover, he or she must have worked at least five years in the lobby of a major hotel and be proposed by at least two members of the organization. A member of Les Clefs d’Or can be easily recognized by the crossed-keys pin worn on the jacket lapel.

Concierge - a vocation steeped in history

The word’s origin traces back to the French term “Comte des Cierges”, meaning “guardian of the candles.” Historians believe that the Comte des Cierges – eventually “Concierge” – was responsible for snuffing out the candles in medieval castles at night and lighting them again at dusk. Thus, for many centuries, concierges have been occupied with the maintenance and representation of royal houses, palaces and castles.

From the beginning of hotel history, concierges have attended to guests’ needs – from the simplest to the most complex. During the Middle Ages, the monarchs’ concierges represented their Majesties by addressing all day-to-day royal concerns. Furthermore, they were the holders of the keys and watched over the entryways and doormen.

Nowadays, concierges can mainly be found in the luxury hotel industry. Their function is to provide helpful, intensive and personal interaction with hotel guests. The amount of the interaction is up to the guest: concierges never intrude. Their role is to serve and, as if by intuition, understand guests’ precise needs, wishes, interests and characteristics and to organize their stay accordingly.

At first glance, a concierge might look like a distinguished front office employee. At the Baur au Lac, the concierges’ domain stands to the right of the front desk. And although a concierge’s tasks sometimes partly overlap with those of a front office employee, they invariably go far beyond. The concierge is a jack of all trades, up to the most standard requests and the most unusual challenges.  From obtaining train reservations or the best theatre tickets, to an airport transfer, a restaurant suggestion, a romantic dinner on top of the “Üetliberg,” an introduction to the perfect speciality store or even a private jet – the concierge is a trusted friend, committed to doing everything not only to simplify but also enhance the guest’s stay. Like a true professional, a Baur au Lac concierge fulfills even the most unusual requests with utter confidence.

Baur au Lac Garage

More than a 110 years ago, when horsepower was still used in front of the carriage and not underneath the hood, the always pioneering Baur au Lac opened its own garage.

Since the opening of the hotel in 1844, the Baur au Lac has been a pioneer in many regards. By purchasing the garage in 1905, hotel owner Karl Kracht proved this spirit once again, this time in terms of motoring. Come by and benefit from this unique five-star service.

Christmas time at the Baur au Lac


More than a tinge of color creeps into the foliage as summer bows out and the dazzling, golden-hued spectacle of fall takes the stage. It is the season of Thanksgiving, a time to thank nature for its gifts and prepare for the onset of cooler days. Before you know it, the first snowflakes are wafting across the sky, the shop windows are dressed in their winter woolies and Christmas – like every year – is knocking at the door. And when Zurich's tallest Christmas tree is all aglow in the Baur au Lac Park, you know for sure: The festive season is upon us.

For the third year in a row, the Chalet au Lac transplants the feel of a log cabin into the heart of the city. Afternoon tea in the lobby provides welcome respite from shopping expeditions. And then come the real festivities, celebrated at the Baur au Lac with exclusive gala dinners and our traditional New Year's Eve Ball. Take a moment to browse through this brochure and get in the mood for the most magical time of year.



A veritable fireworks display of culinary delicacies sets the tone for the evening: Choose between a gourmet menu conjured up by a star-studded chef at the Pavillon, a festive gala dinner at Le Petit Palais and a laid-back dinner party at the Rive Gauche. After that, the park of the Baur au Lac is the perfect place for everyone to feast their eyes on the spectacular midnight fireworks show on Lake Zurich.

Live at Le Petit Palais: 8 OF CLUBS, a young Berlin band that has already captivated a huge audience in front of the Brandenburg Gate. They will play the best songs of past and present – an irresistible, foot-tapping, hip-swaying mix of soul, funk and pop. Let‘s groove tonight...

The Rive Gauche will undoubtedly host the hottest dinner party in the city. Here, DJ PATRIC PLEASURE will blast out «The Music Time Machine» – everything from historic evergreens to the latest dance floor hits – until the early hours of the morning.
Wherever you begin the evening – at the Rive Gauche, the Pavillon, the Petit Palais or the Chalet – the subsequent New Year’s Eve party is for everyone! And if you care to join us later on, walk-around tickets are available from 11:00 p.m.

Please fill this form for individuals or for groups and you shall receive an answer written by a live person at Baur au Lac. This is the only way you can know exactly what room types are available for the dates you want, and the best possible rate, because you are dealing directly with the hotel.
Bear in mind that websites set up to give an automatic answer, work with allocated quotas given by the hotel, therefore when it appears there are no rooms available for the date you want, this is not necessarily true, because they never allocate ALL the rooms to third parties.
