The Baur Au Lac Short Film – Hotel Video Production

This hotel video production focuses on the Baur au Lac Hotel in Zurich, Switzerland, an incredible luxury hotel. It has been owned by the same family since it opened in 1844. The rooms are spacious, and individually decorated with custom made furniture crafted from top-quality materials by superior craftsmen. Each room features a luxurious ensuite made from fine marble, and the hotel sits in its own beautifully landscaped lakeside park.

The grounds of the Baur au Lac hold grand histories of hosting royalty, celebrity, and genius. It also holds the subtler histories of tradition started by the hotel’s founder and carried on by generations since. It is a strand in small histories – like the everyday lives of 173 years of guests and employees – as well as the epic histories of world wars, ideological battles, and the birth of the modern world.

The Story of the Story of the Hotel Baur au Lac – Hotel Video Production

This hotel video production examines the Baur au Lac as a witness to history, but it is not its history. It is not a museum or a relic of old world grandeur. It is a thriving and modern luxury hotel, and it always has been. It’s a hotel that has been constantly updated and renovated to provide the most modern services and amenities. It has history, but it has never been old.

The Baur au Lac is not its history, but it is its staff. It is a place that, above all, is staffed by people with a genuine passion for the hotel, and for their work.

It’s all about people. People who are dedicated, who work with their heart and their mind. Who look into details, who are committed to the very personal needs of our guests.

The Baur au Lac is its owner, Andrea Kracht. Despite being the sixth descendent of the hotel’s founder to run the hotel, Kracht was never forced into the family legacy but independently found a passion for hotels generally and the Baur au Lac specifically.

The Baur au Lac is its Head Concierge, Jérémie Varry. Jérémie’s service for the Baur au Lac’s guests extends far beyond their experience within the hotel. Jérémie has bought cars for clients, found rare dogs, even arranged boat trips in Guatemala. He jokes that the only limit to his hospitality is the law.

The Baur au Lac is its Head Florist, Loren Fischer, who dreamed of being a florist to the Queen when she was younger, and now feels that her dream has come true.

In the words of the Baur au Lac’s General Manager, Wilhelm Luxem, “It’s all about people. People who are dedicated, who work with their heart and their mind. Who look into details, who are committed to the very personal needs of our guests.”

It is the passion of the people that work here that make the Baur au Lac exceptional, and it is this passion that we captured in the official hotel video production of the Baur au Lac movie.
