The Dolder Grand, Zurich’s top address since 1899, has evolved its offerings to cater directly to the ever-increasing number of travelers from the GCC.
“Zurich and the Dolder Grand is open for guests and we’re looking forward to a new season. Ensuring the safety of our guests is a primary concern, and we will continue to follow a strict health concept for the pandemic, in line with the World Health Organisation. This new year has some great events to look forward to as well as offering some of Zurich’s most exciting opportunities to enjoy the city from our elevated position,” said the hotel’s General Manager, Markus Granelli.
