Living history in Zurich since 1641
40 stylish rooms, most with a lake view, an elegant wellness oasis, private sunbathing lawn, two delightful restaurants and four stylish banqueting rooms: situated directly on Lake Zurich, just ten minutes from the city centre, the Seehotel has been spreading romantic magic since 1641. State-of-the-art comfort and a wonderful atmosphere: 80 works of art by world-famous artists such as Andy Warhol, Mario Comensoli or Julian Schnabel adorn the unique hotel.
The "Wirtschaft zur Sonne" first appeared in a document in 1641. Today, the Romantik Seehotel Sonne is run by René Grüter and Catherine Julen Grüter with outstanding expertise and gastronomic passion. "Living history" is the motto of the house, because here tried and tested old traditions are lovingly maintained, while at the same time the management team always keeps its finger on the pulse. A recipe for success that is well worth seeing and that you as a guest will feel every day.
