Theater Gessnerallee

Based at a former barracks and only 5 minutes from Zurich Main Railway Station, the Theater Gessneralle offers space for the performing arts.

The Theater Gessnerallee is a bastion of the fringe theater and dance scene in Switzerland and a production site and premier theater venue for exciting local artists and groups.

Furthermore, there are also just as many guest performances from around the world that perform at festivals and themed events here – ensuring that the latest developments in international dance and theater are presented in Zürich!

Just next-door is the “Reithalle” restaurant with its beautiful garden. Combine your visit to the theater with a delectable dinner.
