The Widder Hotel could almost be a hamlet of a hotel. Nine historical former residences, many dating back to the Middle Ages, have been joined together to create an unusual hotel collaboration. The 42 rooms and 7 suites have emerged from this charming, luxurious labyrinth of a hotel one that many proclaim the best in all of Switzerland. The sensitive architecture seamlessly links historical materials with present-day structures, construction methods, sharp details and an innovative sense of design. By subtly intermingling single buildings via staircases, porticos and inner courtyards, a feeling of intimacy and exclusive security has been created in the hotel’s public spaces. For those interested only in a study of architecture, the Widder is worth a trip to Zurich in its own right.
