Get to know the world of the Responsible Hotels of Switzerland.
The power of water is omnipresent
Located directly on the shore of Lake Zurich just a few minutes outside the city, the Hotel Alex Lake features an impressively ultramodern and youthful design combined with a sophisticated sustainability concept. The Alex Lake belongs to «The Living Circle», a hotel group whose partners collaborate to implement the farm-to-table concept. The group includes various agricultural enterprises producing their own foods which are supplied exclusively to the hotels. This ensures that guests at the Alex Lake can enjoy a variety of home-made farm products from all over Switzerland – including first-class wines and grappa from Ticino.
The hotel is operated in compliance with the Minergie standard, and water from Lake Zurich is used to cool and heat the premises. Each day’s food waste is processed in the biotransformation plant to generate green energy. As a partner of the myclimate initiative, the Alex Lake supports the «Clean Drinking Water for Schools and Households in Uganda» project, and guests also have the option of making a voluntary contribution to this cause.
