From Andy Warhol to Salvador Dalí: art at the Dolder Grand
Since the reopening of the Dolder Grand in 2008, over 100 works of art by prestigious artists have graced the premises of this luxury hotel in Zurich. The most striking piece is arguably Andy Warhol’s “Big Retrospective Painting”, spanning 11 metres, which takes pride of place above the reception. Experience art at the Dolder Grand with our art iPads or enjoying our English Afternoon Tea in the lobby.
The majority of the works of art are displayed in the public areas of the Hotel and are accessible to all guests.
Over 100 works of art now adorn the Dolder Grand, imparting an even more exclusive atmosphere to the City Resort. Fernando Botero’s opulent “Woman with fruit” is waiting to be discovered as well as artworks by Niki de Saint Phalle, Jean Tinguely and many more famous artists.
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 numerous works of art by international 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 signature style of Lord Norman Foster
From 2004 to 2008, the Dolder Grand was converted and renovated. The renowned London-based architecture practice Foster + Partners 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.
These additions complement the Main Building with an organic architectural design and connect the past with the future. Heritage and vision united in the most beautiful form.
