As the oldest hotel in the city with a priveleged position banking on the River Limmat (which, with 5 nostalgic open-air pools on its banks, continues the 19th century tradition of bathing), the topic of sustainability is of great importance to us.

When we tell our guests that they can swim in the Limmat and that the water is of drinking quality, they are often amazed. Standing on our own Storchen Pier, our guests can imagine being in Venice - except that the water in Zürich is crystal clear. 

For us at the Storchen Zurich, it is all about taking into account and harmonizing the needs and concerns of people, the environment and the economy in equal measure.
Sustainability is a process - a long road that we will certainly take. Compliance with legal requirements is not enough for us; we want to set an example and exceed it. We summarize our efforts in our sustainability mission statement.

Get an overview of our measures in the areas of economic, social and environmental sustainability. Here only the very best is done to ensure that our special place stays as nice as it is for the next 660 years.
