The Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute GDI

When Gottlieb Duttweiler founded the GDI over 50 years ago, he created a place for reflection and encounters. Today the Institute is one of Switzerland’s leading think tanks. Intellectual trailblazers come here from around the world to hone their ideas for the future. GDI is the ideal event location for the forum as it offers excellent facilities away from the hustle and bustle of the city, a mind stimulating environment set against relaxed, picturesque parkland and overlooking Lake Zurich. EURUS forum delegates are bound to benefit from this uniquely creative atmosphere.

Accommodation at special rates in Zurich


The GDI is close to Zurich, yet surrounded by nature. The building is next to the historic Park im Grüene, a popular recreation area for people of all ages. Situated high above Lake Zurich, you’ll enjoy a fabulous panorama spanning the city, lake and distant snow-capped Alps.
