Yuki and her spectacular friends live for sustainability. Yuki always writes responsibility on her furry chest, and this year she has also taken new measures in a wide variety of areas to always improve. Here’s a sampling of them:

Light, power and energy is an issue we all need to address this year and in the years to come. We take this very seriously, which is why we began converting our world of lights completely to LED a few years ago, making the sea of lights a spectacular element, but one that has little impact on the environment.

We also live sustainability in the Fondue Chalet: with its thick wooden walls, it manages without heating even in winter thanks to human body heat.

In addition, we are implementing the following measures together with the National Museum Zurich this year:

  • Some decorative lights in the freely accessible part in the inner courtyard will be switched off at 10 pm instead of midnight. But don’t worry, it won’t be completely dark. There will be enough lights for a cozy and Christmas atmosphere.
  • Sundays through Tuesdays, the last two shows will not be performed.
  • We also try very hard to be energy efficient in our catering and cook with the latest technologies to become even more efficient. For example, we cook exclusively with induction hobs. In addition, we now buy fresh bread for fondue, so that the electricity consumption for baking the bread is completely eliminated.
  • The National Museum Zurich will partially switch off the museum’s exterior lighting.
  • The air exchange rate of ventilation systems has been optimized and the temperature in the exhibition rooms will be slightly reduced.
  • All outdoor light panels will be consistently switched off from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am.

With the location right next to Zurich’s main train station, we recommend that our guests travel by public transport.
