NOW Curious Traveller Diaries

The Dolder Grand

A wonderful trip to Zurich with my girlfriend Tatiana. Dolder Grand Hotel is the perfect place to relax and enjoy.

We visited during Zurich film festival which added a vibrant note to the luxurious atmosphere of this place.

The hotel features a beautiful spa and some really incredible artwork from various artists, every corner is somehow interesting and you would need more then 24 hours to grasp the fine style of this place.

Every guest contributes to NOW projects with a small donation, which I think it is a great way to minimize our impact on the planet.

There was no excessive use of plastic or waste, even during these current times where extra packaging is basically the new routine.

We would gladly visit again. Giancarlo
