Hotel Storchen Zurich

A Juwel rich of tradition and history reopens at the Limmat river in Zurich: Hotel Storchen’s location is unique. Waking up facing the river and admiring the beauty of Grossmünster or the Alps is memorable

The renovation of the hotel took place in 6 1/2 weeks only tells Director Jörg Arnold at the press conference. A team of ca. 400 specialists made this project happen. The logistics were quite an effort, due to its very central location. A detailed and professional planning was indispensable.

Today the Storchen is proudly presented with its new plumage. The house architect Patric Meier from P. Meier & Partner AG and the interior designer Ina Rinderknecht and Christoph Cavigelli had the task to reposition the Hotel Storchen as a contemporary hotel still keeping its traditional heritage for an international young clientele.

Walking through the hotel corridors my eyes capture the high quality materials that have been selected and perfectly brought into place. There are plenty little details, where you understand that the topic here is the stork itself as well as the element of the water. Some of the lamps remind me a ships buoy. Delicate shining white ropes integrated as a decorative material in the curtains may build the bridge to a classy yacht, too. The colors of the plums are well incorporated everywhere. It’s all about to feel the Stork-Image confirms the designer.


There are 66 rooms and suites in several room categories available. Every room offers a combination of classical furnishings, together with warm colours and modern facilities. The rooms facing the river or the alps are breathtaking. Get all the booking details here.

My personal highlights

Taste the Trancio at Barchetta which is a warm pizza bread with fresh rucola, dried tomatoes and cheese. Or try the version with Prosciutto, too. Absolutely fresh and really mediterranean flavored. Fredi Nussbaum will be serving a range of new dishes at Barchetta.

Get a coffee or a fresh juice in the Lounge or at the bar and enjoy they magic view facing the river and the old town of Zurich.

Overnight in a room overlooking the Alps and the beautiful Grossmünster.
