The Widder is a charming hotel with an excellent staff who truly wish to satisfy every need. It is in a great location in central Zurich. The rooms are very large and surprisingly modern with all amenities that one could think of. It was a very comfortable stay. Warning: it is very expensive.

Easily one of the best restaurants in Zurich, very centraled located and reachable by foot from the main station. Swiss fine-dining at the highest but not most expensive level.

A wonderful little spot in Zurich. Great food, attentive service, fairly priced wines (at least compared to everything else in Switzerland!)
