Just 20 minutes from ZurichHigh-caliber cultural festivalsPhotography and technology museums
The former industrial city of Winterthur is just a 20-minute train ride from Zurich Main Station.
Once an industrial stronghold, today Switzerland’s sixth largest city is a real cultural metropolis. In addition to 17 outstanding museums – such as the Fotomuseum, the Oskar Reinhart collection “Am Römerholz”, and the Swiss Science Center Technorama – “Winti”, as the locals call it, hosts above all first-class festivals.
These include Afro-Pfingsten, the Winterthurer Musikfestwochen, and the International Short Film Festival. The first two are held in Europe’s largest continuous pedestrian zone, making them popular meeting places among both locals and visitors from home and abroad.
