In our cosy, centuries-old restaurant, we serve you the best of both worlds. On the one hand, we serve Swiss specialities such as veal sausage in the old style or the classic "Züri Gschnetzlets". On the other hand, you can expect internationally inspired, modern dishes. These are characterised by first-class regional products and lots of ProSpecieRara vegetables.

Sonne am See
Sonne am See

Heiko Nieder, Culinary Director of The Dolder Grand, has designed a new food concept for the popular beer garden of the Romantik Seehotel Sonne in Küsnacht. From this season onwards, the new menu will only include dishes that the chef, who has been awarded 2 Michelin stars and 19 Gault Millau points, cooks himself for his family and friends and enjoys eating. 

Our responsibility

Romantik Seehotel Sonne
Efficient

We have been participating in an energy-saving programme for three years now and were certified for it by the Energy Agency for Industry in 2021. This has enabled us to effectively reduce our energy consumption. In addition, sustainability is firmly anchored in our historic hotel: within the historic walls, we take care of our furniture and prefer to repair it instead of buying new. In order to continue to think ahead for the future and to constantly improve, we participate in a coaching programme of the Hotellerie Suisse.

Frühstücksbuffet -  Romantik Seehotel Sonne
Regional and local

We attach great importance to regionality and local cultivation. That's why we buy most of our food close to the region. Delicious whitefish fillets and pike directly from the Lake Zurich fisherman, fresh bread from the village baker in Küsnacht, honey from Küsnacht or Switzerland, eggs from happy chickens from the organic farm and milk products from Natürli from the Zurich Oberland. We also focus on the Lake Zurich region, Switzerland and Europe for our wines and avoid wines from overseas. In our Sonne am See beer garden, we sell sustainably grown coffee that we buy directly from the producer, who in turn supports charitable projects and local schools.

Around the hotel

Romantik Seehotel Sonne
Relaxing

Natural materials, soft light effects and contemporary design make the wellness oasis at the Seehotel Sonne a true gem. Not least because of the private sunbathing lawn directly on Lake Zurich, which no relaxation room, no matter how extravagant, can compete with. The wonderful lake air refreshes you at its finest, while the expansive views over the waves soothe your soul. Relaxing here is child's play.

CH - Zurich -

Follow the signs to Zürich City, exit Zürich City, then follow the signs to the lake and Rapperswil. From Bellevueplatz you will see Lake Zurich on your right. Follow the road along the lake to Küsnacht. The Romantik Seehotel is located in the centre of town, turn right at the second traffic light. You can park your car in front of the house for CHF 15 per night.

The most beautiful way to reach the Romantik Seehotel Sonne is by boat. For example, you can travel from Zurich Bürkliplatz and get off at the Küsnacht station directly in front of the hotel.

Treat yourself to something special - you'll never forget a spin on the water taxi from Küsnacht to Zurich-Bürkliplatz. Or how about a romantic trip on the lake, perhaps after your wedding? Or would you prefer an excursion with the children? The water taxi pulls in!

From Zurich, take the S6 or S16 in the direction of Uetikon or Meilen. Get off at the "Küsnacht" stop (one to Küsnacht-Goldbach) and reach the hotel in two minutes on foot.

The S16 leaves every half hour and takes you from the airport to Küsnacht within 25 minutes. From the train station you can reach the hotel in two minutes on foot. A taxi from the airport costs approx. CHF 90 - depending on traffic.
