Health and safety measures

Dear Guest

On Monday, 16 March 2020, Switzerland’s Federal Council declared an “extraordinary situation”, thus expanding the measures for containing the coronavirus pandemic. The concluded rulings also apply to the Dolder Grand.

First of all, we are pleased to inform you that the Dolder Grand will remain open.

The health of our guests and employees is our highest priority. It is of utmost importance to us that we seamlessly implement the concluded rulings and provide the authorities with the best support we can in these difficult times. The measures will affect the service we are able to provide.

We are pleased to inform you about the current status of the new service range:

– In the lobby, we will continue to serve food and beverages to our hotel guests between 7.00 am and 10.00 pm. However, in accordance with the new statutory order, external guests will not have any access to these services.

– For external guests, we offer a take-away service every day from 11 am to 6 pm with patisserie creations by Christian Hümbs, various Saltz classics and chocolates by Heiko Nieder.

– As usual, room service is available to our hotel guests 24 hours a day. Starting at 10.00 pm, room service has a limited menu.

– All restaurants will be closed to external guests from Tuesday, 17 March 2020, to Sunday, 19 April 2020.
