The Storchen Zurich is so beautifully maintained as a first-class hotel that at first glance it is difficult to conceive it has been in operation for over six centuries. Located in the heart of the old town, near the financial district and just two minutes from the famous Bahnhofstrasse, the Zum Storchen offers the charm and warmth of a quality hotel. Wine and dine in the authentic guildhouse atmosphere of the La Rotisserie restaurant. In summer, enjoy a meal on the unique terrace overlooking the river.

Note Bene
It is not known exactly how the hotel got its name «Zum Storchen». Legend has it that the name was adopted after a pair of rare black storks nested on its roof. In 1357 the «Hus zum Storchen» was mentioned in the tax records for the city of Zürich for the first time and just over 100 years later, it was specifically described as an inn.
Banquets & Meetings
A sophisticated setting in which to hold business and family events for up to 120 guests, offering a wide range of banqueting facilities.
