Our values and our team

Fred Tschanz Gastgewerbe shows Zurich from its most hospitable side. Our locations are real Zurich originals and we actively cultivate and lead them into the future with heart and mind.


We do business with sense and sensibility. We meet our guests and employees as equals and with an open heart.  We also treat partners, tenants and suppliers as though they were our regular guests. 


Our businesses and properties are true Zurich originals. They are located in the heart of the city and have close ties to the city’s life. In short: if you want to experience Zurich, you have come to the right place – no matter whether you were born here, have moved here or are just visiting.


Fred Tschanz is a recognised name in Zürich. We are aware of this responsibility and carry the pioneering spirit of our founder into the future: through fair business conduct and long-term thinking free of short-lived trends.

Our operations

Legendary, cosmopolitan and famous across the whole city – this is Café ODEON. Since 1911 it has been charming its guests with its distinct and timeless character.

Reception is a thing of the past. The Alpine Rooms by Leoneck offer you uncomplicated and comfortable accommodations for short trips, business trips, or long-term stays in Zurich.

Fred Tschanz is the official catering partner of the VBZ Genuss-Linie. On the ride with the vintage streetcar, guests are treated to culinary delights while being chauffeured through Zurich.
