An Über-Hip Hotel in the Altstadt
In recent years, designer hotels have popped up all over Zürich, but the Widder, one of the city’s first, still outdoes them all with its envious location and bold anachronistic style. Set among nine linked historic buildings steps from Bahnhofstrasse, each of the 49 rooms has a unique look—for instance, Corbusier armchairs against a 16th century oil fresco. There’s also art in each room, including a Robert Rauschenberg piece commissioned by the hotel in the penthouse suite.
