An overview of the project

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 2021. The rooms will be used for the purposes of living, storage and work during this period, and in the public rooms will to host a limited number of individual events. The period of temporary use is being run in conjunction with Projekt Interim GmbH, which boasts considerable experience in this area having already successfully realised a number of similar projects throughout various cities in Switzerland.

The planned four-star superior hotel will occupy different levels and feature 97 generously proportioned hotel rooms and suites, each of which will have its own balcony and views of Zurich, the lake and the Alps. With its versatile accommodation options, the hotel will be able to meet the needs of a variety of guest segments. On the sixth floor, you will find nine serviced apartments with 2.5 to 4.5 rooms and an exceptional panoramic view.


The restaurant planned for the lobby floor of the new Dolder Waldhaus will also offer spectacular views over the city and lake, while the raised terrace and outdoor lounge will provide a smooth transition to the lobby and bar.

The 800 m2 hotel spa – boasting a pool, sauna, children’s water play area and gym – will provide a pleasant space for activities and relaxing rejuvenation. Spa-goers will enjoy beauty and body treatments in dedicated rooms. In addition, the spa will not only be open to hotel guests; members and day guests will also be able to use its services and facilities.

Finally, there are plans to build a villa nearby containing four luxury apartments. The building will be managed separately from the hotel and will have its own entrance on Dolderstrasse.
