Haus zum Rech – Construction History and City Archive
The Haus zum Rech has been part of Zurich’s old town for 800 years. Today it houses the city archives
This 800 year-old house is worth a visit for its history alone: flanked by two residential medieval towers, it is a fitting home to the city's archive of architectural history and the city archives. Changing exhibitions provide insight into topics related to construction history in Zurich. A large model of the city as it was in 1800 invites visitors to combine a tour of modern-day Zurich with a look back at the past.
