    Our opinion

    The Hotel DuTheatre by Fassbind is a glamorous option for those spending a few nights in the city.

    Hotel description

    This three star design-hotel is set at the very heart of the city of Zurich, beside the gateway to the Old Town. Built in the 1950s, the exterior still exhibits all the glamour and opulence of the decade, and inside, it is full of enchanting nostalgia for a romantic, bygone era. The front façade oozes all the sophistication of the film world, with tall glass walls, steps lit by the orange glow from the light within, and a statue, sculpted in a classical style, on the pavement outside. Above the glassy hall, a large piece of nouveau sculpture transforms the wall. Once one of the iconic Boulevard Theatres, the hotel is now home to the Alba Cinema, one of the most important studio cinemas in the city, and now a protected monument. As you walk through the hotel, its boutique feel becomes apparent. The rooms are populated with unique, designer furniture that has a playful effect on the overall feel of the interior. Though the Hotel DuTheatre doesn’t have a restaurant, a number of the city’s best eateries are just around the corner. Spend a few nights in the city at the Hotel DuTheatre as part of a longer luxury tour across Europe.


    In the heart of Zurich, just a short walk from the banks of the Limmat River, which flows into Lake Zurich.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    To see the impressive monuments left by Zurich’s long and opulent history, visit the Grossmunster Cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century, the 11th century Fraumunster church, with its Chagall windows, or the Swiss National Museum, to see its historical exhibits as well as the crafts on display. The Museum Schloss Kyburg is situated just outside the city inside a white-washed rustic chateau-esque building. Of an afternoon, we would recommend taking a tour of Zurich’s Old Town (self-guided or otherwise), to appreciate the city’s origins, which date back to Roman times. Historic squares and quaint architecture will draw you around. Most tours should also take you past the Cabaret Voltaire, the birthplace of Dadaism. For a fantastic view across the city, and to see Lake Zurich in all its glory, trek up to the Uetliberg vantage point, the trail up to which goes through forested hills. The Kunsthaus Zurich is an unmissable attraction, as it displays a vast collection of major European artworks. For a taste of the more modern side of Zurich, observe the architecture of the Freitag Tower or at Europaallee. For a short trip outside the city, visit nearby Baden, with its colourful houses and pretty streets.

    Sports nearby

    The proximity of Lake Zurich means that guests are perfectly placed to enjoy the sailing, wakeboarding, and kitesurfing (among other water sports) facilities nearby. Alternatively, take to the hills for a brisk hike.
