Our entire team welcomes you at the PLATZHIRSCH!

We are all looking forward to your esteemed visit and to spoiling you in your new home away from home.

We are an international team, hailing from virtually every corner of the world, and pleased to be here together in beautiful Zürich. We all understand what makes this city so special, and are happy to share our passion, insights and dedication to service with you. Our motivation is to make you feel welcome, our reward is your smile.

Our used toner cartridges and ink cartridges are handed over to the campaign each toner is counts by the Swiss Red Cross and thus helps to reduce waste mountains. These are checked and processed in the Pelikan recycling center. Pelikan hands a donation to the Red Cross for collected toner. The money from the collection campaign benefits the humanitarian work of the Swiss Red Cross, especially families in need in Switzerland.

Used cork taps we send to the Foundation Stiftung Bernaville whose inhabitants process them to practical cheminee lighter cubes (recycling fire lighter "LaFlamme"). The Foundation Bernaville offers and develops needs-oriented offers for residents in the areas of housing, work, employment, leisure, health, nutrition and integration.

We also support Pro Nachtleben Zürich because we believe in a vibrant Zurich.

We provide maintenance and repair work wherever possible to the non-profit and privately owned CB Stiftung, which offers jobs and a memorable life for people with a mental disability. The goal of this foundation is to improve the life and future prospects of these people by providing the low-threshold employment and employment forms of the second labor market for an unlimited period of time, and to enable them to live a meaningful life as well as a fixed daytime structure in the midst of our society.

When guests dispose of clothes or shoes in the room bucket, we hand them over to the Swiss Mountain Aid. We dispose of other leftover objects according to the applicable recycling rules.


Platzhirsch is very well connected to the world-renowned efficient public transport system in Zurich, via Tram lines no. 4 and no. 15. Your stop, only a skip and a hop from our front door is called "Rudolf Brun Brücke” (translated: Rudolf Brun ‘Bridge').

From this beautiful, riverside stop you simply walk direction upstream along the Limmat River and between the shops "Affolter Uhren" and "GEOX" turn uphill onto the quaint street called “Hirschengasse” ...and you come right onto the “Hirschenplatz” (Square) where straight ahead to the left you’ll see the PLATZHIRSCH Hotel. Don’t worry you, can’t miss us!

From Zürich Airport you can join us either by train or taxi.

TRAIN: Every 15 minutes there is a direct train from the Airport to the Zurich main station. Just follow the clearly marked signs throughout the airport (with a train symbol on them), to the lower concourse. Tickets are available at the bottom of the escalators, with SBB train staff usually on hand to assist in English. From arrival into the Zurich main train station (often called HB, or ‘Hauptbahnhof'), walk north outside to the tram stop “Bahnhofquai/HB” - take Tram no. 4 to "Rudolf Brun Brücke” stop (we're only two stops away...!). Journey time ca. 12 minutes to HB, then 5 minutes to Hotel, cost approx 12.00 CHF

TAXI: Thanks to our taxi partner Taxi 444 we can offer taxi rides from and to the airport Zürich for a special
all in price of CHF 55 (travel time ca. 15-30 minutes depending on traffic)

The hotel ist situated in the midst of a pedestrian zone and does not provide parking. We recommend the municipal parking garage Urania, ca. 5 minutes away from the PLATZHIRSCH.

From Urania parking garage, EXIT to the right, and walk across the Rudolf Brun Bridge over the river, turn right and continue about 150 meters upstream along the Limmat River, and between the shops "Affolter Uhren" and "GEOX" turn uphill onto the quaint street called “Hirschengasse” ...and you come right onto the “Hirschenplatz” (Square) where straight ahead to the left you’ll see the PLATZHIRSCH Hotel.
