The Hotel Europe in Zurich is situated in the north-east wing of the Grand Utocastle, which has been constructed over one century ago from 1898 until 1900. The prestigious building is an offspring from the Neo-Baroque era with influence of the Art Nouveau. The hotel is owned by the Kramer family since 1996. In October 2010, the former 3-star Hotel Europe was completely renovated during a period of 5 months. As of 1st March 2011 the hotel shines in a new 4-star splendor.
