The Dolder Waldhaus

Between city and nature

The Dolder Waldhaus has been part of Zurich’s cityscape for over 100 years. However, the present building – which dates from the 1970s – no longer meets the operational or architectural requirements of our well-travelled guests. The building will be replaced with a brand new construction following an interim period, which will see it made available for temporary use until January 2020.
