Epic Europe



The Marktgasse boutique hotel with its 39 individually furnished rooms, two restaurants and a bar is right in the heart of it all. The building from the 15th century can look back on over 600 years of hospitality. Following a comprehensive renovation, the rich stories from the past can still be felt and experienced, such as in the slightly uneven floors. Many of the heritage elements enjoy protected status and have been carefully preserved, resulting in a compelling mix of past history with timeless, eclectic design, full of charm and personality. Enjoy the loveliest views of Zurich, such as from the tower of the Grossmünster cathedral, from Lindenhof or the deluxe option: from the Junior Suite with its own roof terrace. Stroll through the lively Niederdorf district with countless small boutiques, galleries and many excellent restaurants and bars.


FOOD & DRINKS: The Balto Küche Restaurant offers a mix with the new, local with international, young with old and easygoing with refined. The Balto Bar is the perfect place for a before-dinner drink, a meal at the bar or the nightcap afterward, with a selection of beer specialties from small breweries. The Delish offers surprising and delicious creations to enjoy on the spot or to go. 


LOCATION: The hotel is in the heart of the historic old town just by the Niederdorf district. It is 15 minutes walking from the train station. The legendary Bahnhofstrasse with its numerous shops and department stores is just a short walk away.

  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA
