An oasis of history and art
The Dolder Grand Resort is a hilltop landmark overlooking Lake Zurich in Switzerland, nestled on the edge of the stunning Aldsberg Forest with breathtaking views of Lake Zurich, the heart of the vibrant city and the Alps. The Dolder Grand Resort, which celebrates Swiss architecture, dates back to the 19th century and has been the perfect haven for relaxation ever since.
In 2008, two glass and steel buildings were built as a two-wing extension on either side of the main building. The expansion included the construction of new facilities such as the 43,000-square-foot spa center and doubling the number of accommodations while connecting the new rooms to the surrounding forest. As part of the refurbishment of the hotel’s interior design, the modern facilities that have become an integral part of luxury hotels have been incorporated, while preserving the original engineering heritage.
Some of the hotel walls are also built in the style of birch trees that allow sunlight to penetrate inside the building, creating a wonderfully dynamic blend in which light and shadow merge that cover the spa lounge. In addition to its aesthetic features, The Dolder Grand Resort is known for its sustainable and eco-friendly approach. Although the resort now covers more space after restoration, the new building consumes half the capacity of the old facility.
After the restoration, the hotel was decorated with more than 120 works of art. The most impressive piece is undoubtedly Salvador Dali’s Femmes metamorphosées – Les sept arts of 1957. Some guests may be stunned in the hotel’s foyer at the sight of an exhausted man sleeping on his pockets in the corner, but fans by artist Duane Hanson will instantly recognize the “Traveler” sculpture that looks like a real human being.
