The hall with its magnificently crafted stucco ceiling is considered a gem of the rococo period and provides room for 240 guests.

Your individual culinary tastes will guide us when creating a menu for you. For every dish an appropriate, fine wine can be found in our cellars.
The museum on the first floor can be the prelude to your event. With a glass of wine or cocktail in hand, your guests will meet, mingle and get into the mood for the main event. The showpiece of our rooms houses an extraordinary collection of porcelain from the Swiss National Museum.
Upwards of 60 guests—and all according to the season—we recommend the services of our coatroom attendant. Your guests can leave their coats on the first floor. The coats will remain under guard until the guests leave. Cost: CHF 35.00 per hour or fraction thereof.
We will gladly accommodate your program and do your event justice. In order to do this, we must be given the number, the point in time and the lengths of possible speeches / presentations to be made during the dinner, or we cannot guarantee an impeccable service.
It will probably be late by the end of the event. Do you still want to drive home? Why not spend the night in the heart of Zurich? Our neighboring hotels have lovely rooms. Ask us for a recommendation.
