Hollywood Stars
stay here

Diane Kruger

Diane Kruger received the Golden Eye for her outstanding acting performance and bold choice of roles at the Zurich Film Festival (ZFF) in 2023. The German-American actress began her career as a successful international model before turning to acting. Following her breakthrough as Helen in Wolfgang Petersen’s “Troy” (2004), she showed her versatility in films such as “Inglourious Basterds” and “In the Fade”, for which she received the Best Actress award at Cannes. After being cast as the most beautiful woman in the world, she impressively established a successful career in the US and Europe. She stayed at the Dolder Grand while in Zurich and gave numerous interviews at the Hotel. In response to NZZ’s question of whether she had a propensity toward absolute dedication, she said: “Not just in my work. Now that I have a family, the emotions are much more intense.”

Rebel Willson

Rebel Wilson joins Charlotte Gainsbourg in September 2022 at the 18th Zurich Film Festival to present “The Almond and the Seahorse”, a film that tackles life’s biggest themes in a bittersweet manner.
The Australian actress, comedian and screenwriter, known for her multifaceted roles and unique humour, earned fame with comedies such as “Bridesmaids” (2011), “Pitch Perfect” (2012) and their sequels. With her degrees in law and in theatre and performance studies, she has established herself as one of the leading comedy actresses of her generation with her quick wit and comedy skills. She is an advocate of body acceptance and self-love and has an inspirational message for her fans in this respect: love is love.

Royals stay here

King Charles III

For many years, the British royal family has valued Switzerland as a winter sports destination.
Charles III stayed at the Dolder Grand in 1980. While still a bachelor prince, he travelled to Switzerland on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the British-Swiss Chamber of Commerce and enjoyed a gala dinner with the then Federal Councillor Kurt Furgler. It is an honour for the Hotel and equally fascinating to see how historic moments such as these are reflected in the history of the Dolder Grand.
To this day, climate protection and sustainability are important concerns of Charles III, and they are also addressed by the Dolder Grand in its sustainability policy. Back in 1970, the 21-year-old prince raised awareness of the dangers of plastic waste. In retrospect, his foresight was pioneering and visionary.

Rock Stars stay here

The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones and the Dolder Grand are connected by a special relationship. As an homage to the “Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World”, the Grand Hotel has dedicated a suite to them – Suite 100. The Rolling Stones, who celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2022, chose the Grand Hotel as a retreat several times when touring Switzerland.
Their first concert – at Zurich’s Hallenstadion in front of 12,000 visitors in 1967 – unleashed “a serious riot”, as the NZZ reported at the time, when the Stones caused the otherwise well-behaved youths to run rampant. In 2006, 70,000 fans rocked out at Zurich Airport, making it Switzerland’s largest concert ever at the time.
