Giacometti-Hall - Zürich Tourism

Zürich offers so many sights to see. A relaxed stroll through the city reveals something amazing at every corner: architectural highlights, historic squares, streets and districts, churches, works of art and much more.


When Gustav Gull, Zürich’s master architect around 1900, transformed an orphanage into a municipal building housing the city police station, the cellar became the entrance area. Since the lighting in the former cellar was not ideal, it proved necessary to resort to artistic methods. Augusto Giacometti was hired to paint the walls and vaulted ceiling. The result was a piece of art that now has national significance. The local population uses the affectionate nickname “The hall of tiny flowers” to describe the Giacometti Hall.
It is necessary to provide ID at reception to view the hall.
