A wholly modern art tour guide
The Dolder Grand offers its guests an art iPad to guide them through the artworks on display in the Hotel. The iPad contains information on 124 works of art by 90 different artists, and is available from reception. iPad users can sort the list by work or by location, find out more about the artists, and access a map showing the positions of the works.
The manuscripts of Lord Norman Foster
From 2004 to 2008, the Dolder Grand was converted and renovated. The renowned London-based architecture practice Foster + Partners has combined the Hotel’s historic Main Building of 1899 with modern architectural accoutrements. Two new wings – the Spa Wing and the Golf Wing – enclose the fully restored Main Building, tangibly linking past and future.
Collaboration with Galerie Gmurzynska
The Dolder Grand has joined forces with Galerie Gmurzynska. The gallery is exhibiting some of its works of art in the Dolder Grand, bringing a new shine to the Hotel. Guests can admire the works of art and rediscover the Dolder Grand all over again.
