Treat yourself to an indulgent escape to Zürich with tips from Christopher Novak, VP, Beauty, on exclusive hotels and spa treatments, historic restaurants, and can’t-miss art and culture

“Opened in 1899, The Dolder Grand has an illustrious history of unparalleled service and spa experiences, as well as being a celebrity favourite. Not only is it a stunning hotel, it’s also a destination for any art lover, with an impressive collection including works by Andy Warhol, Fernando Botero, and even an abstract piece by Sylvester Stallone.”

What To Do

LA PRAIRIE FACIAL EXPERIENCE

“One of the most exclusive spas in Switzerland, the Dolder Grand Spa completely lived up to its reputation—my facial was 90 minutes of pure luxury. I had the chance to try the newest addition to the La Prairie Skin Caviar Collection and left feeling relaxed and, more importantly, with radiant skin.”

What To Eat

STORCHEN HOTEL

“Whether for Sunday brunch en plein air or a lantern-lit dinner, the riverside Terrace at the Storchen Hotel is a must-stop. The combo of impressive views of the Limmat River and Grossmünster along with an incredible menu—which it shares with the indoors La Rôtisserie restaurant should the weather not cooperate—can’t be beat.”

What to See

ART BASEL

“If you can time your trip to coincide with Art Basel in June, do it. Only an hour from Zürich, it makes for the perfect day trip to take in the world’s most exciting art and artists. I was so impressed by this year’s La Prairie-sponsored exhibition of up-and-coming Swiss photographers Daniela Droz, Namasa Leuba, and Senta Simond.”
