Description
Built in 1913 as an office building for Credit Suisse, the six-storey Peterhof is also known as the Grieder Building. Its ornate facade, designed by Otto M√ľnch, looms over the luxury-brand shops, banks and high-end hotels that dot this area of Zurich's city centre.



Predominantly an office building, the Peterhof is also home to retail outlets at street level.  The historic Gothic revival building was sold by Credit Suisse in 2014 to the Swiss watch company Swatch for a reported CHF 450m.
