It could hardly be more central: Alte Kaserne is located on the old Kasernenareal between Zurich Main Station and the trendy Langstrasse. The site is freely accessible to the public and in summer is frequently used for large events, such as Labor Day on May 1 or Zurich Pride. It is also home to two restaurants.
However, Alte Kaserne really comes to life at night, when concerts, various party series, theater, and readings attract a mixed audience to the former military barracks. Incidentally, when the locals talk about the "Kaserne”, they are usually referring to the whole site, and not just Zeughaus 5.
The venue is renowned for its easy-going and high-spirited alternative ambiance. And after a concert or before an electro swing party, it is just a short distance away from countless restaurants and bars.
