Haus zum Kindli was first mentioned 550 years ago by the Saxon pilgrim Hans von Waltheym. In 1474, his travel journal described our House as an elegant pilgrims' hostel.
Visitors came every year at Whitsun until the Reformation, to the processions of Fraumünster and Grossmünster, which took place on the historic Lindenhof.
This heritage prevails. Kindli continues to be a hospitable and cosmopolitan house, where the guests find a welcoming “home away from home” and experience a sense of belonging.
Enjoy the privacy of a historic townhouse in one of the charming 20 rooms at the KINDLI.
Just a few steps away you find the sanctuary of the Lindenhof park with its 52 linden trees and the picturesque view on the old town and the Limmat river.

The Kindli is located literally in the heart of Zurich. It was here, at the Lindenhof, where the developement of the city began. Over the course of almost 600 years, the house zum Kindli has witnessed countless social, political and economic upheavals as well as personal human fates. Beginning in Roman times, the Kindli was positioned on an axis between sacred and secular centres directly between a temple and the fort of the Lindenhof.
