Don't let family vacation time intimidate you. You'll have a blast at the kid-friendly hotels of Zurich. Our top pick is the Illuster Hotel, a 3-star hotel located in the middle of Uster, a country town embedded in natural surroundings, undulating scenery and vast woodland. It is also close to the scenic lake of Greifensee. If price isn't a problem, treat the family to Baur au Lac, one of the world's great hotels. Owned by the same family since it opened in 1844, Baur au Lac is ideally located at the end of Bahnhofstrasse, right next to the Schanzengraben Canal. The constantly renovated three-story stone building is surrounded by a private park that's filled with red geraniums. We are also big fans of Hotel Seehof. Set close to the opera house and the promenade that parallels the lake, this small-scale, postmodern hotel was opened in 1999 after a radical renovation and modernization of the original 1930s-era private house. These family-friendly hotels in Zurich can help remove some of the stress when traveling with little ones in tow.
