This is a historic moment for THE LIVING CIRCLE. After all, the opportunity to announce such a stunning new acquisition does not come around every day. Today, however, is one of those rare days. In addition to the five-star hotel Storchen Zurich and the multi-award-winning five-star superior hotel Castello del Sole in Ascona, the most attractive five-star holiday hotel in Switzerland, we now have a third stunning establishment – the Widder Hotel in Zurich is now also a part of THE LIVING CIRCLE.
The Widder Hotel is a five-star superior hotel located in one of Zurich’s prime locations on the historic Rennweg, less than 200 metres or a two-minute walk from the Storchen. And, just like the Storchen, which we have been successfully running as a hotel for over 70 years, the Widder Hotel is also a former guild house in a fantastic location and a piece of Zurich history. This boutique hotel has plenty of charm, features stunning designs and offers guests an exquisite dining experience. THE LIVING CIRCLE acquired this historic hotel from previous owners UBS Inc. today. The property is now owned by Swiss Life Ltd, while the hotel business is now part of our group.
Led by Jan E. and Regula Brucker, the experienced and enthusiastic management team will maintain the same exacting standards here that you have become accustomed to at the other Living Circle hotels. Our two top addresses in the heart of Zurich also provide the perfect setting for any occasion, from formal conferences and congresses to simply sitting back, relaxing and watching the world go by. The Widder and the Storchen are ideal for breakout sessions during conferences in the Widder Saal, and the room capacities at both hotels complement one another perfectly.
Our new flagship hotel, the Widder, is a perfect fit for our select collection of first-class hotels and restaurants, all of which are located only in the most desirable locations and managed by passionate and innovative hosts. And of course rice, vegetables, fruit, fine wines and other delicacies – freshly produced at our very own farms – will soon be on the menu at the Widder Hotel’s restaurants. That is our definition of luxury and indulgence. The Widder Hotel is now a member of THE LIVING CIRCLE – LUXURY HOTELS FED BY NATURE.Download the press release (German)
