Stadthaus – Exhibitions in the House of the People of Zurich
The Stadthaus Zurich (town hall) is located on the left banks of the River Limmat, right alongside the Fraumünster church. Temporary exhibitions are held under the archways.
Regular exhibitions take place in the charming columned galleries of the Stadthaus. The focus is on socio-political issues, often with links to Zurich and the region. Issues of relevance to inhabitants of the region and country are highlighted in particular.
The construction of the neo-Gothic Stadthaus began at the end of the 19th century when the city’s inhabitants exceeded 100,000. Zurich suddenly became a large city following incorporation of other local areas and therefore required a suitable Stadthaus.
