Bronze City Model on Stadthausquai

A model of Zurich that you can touch: directly next to the Stadthaus, both visually impaired and sighted people can feel the city center with their fingers.

Thanks to this model, both visually impaired and sighted people can walk through downtown Zurich – with their fingertips.

The tactile bronze city model stands in a prominent location on Stadthausquai. Surrounded by Zurich’s most famous attractions, the model invites visitors to discover these highlights, as well as Zurich’s city center, in a new way. Sighted and visually impaired people, as well as children, passers-by, and tourists can walk with their fingers through Zurich’s narrow, winding streets and feel the difference in the size of the buildings. In addition, the model, which is on a scale of 1:750, provides explanations of buildings, streets, and squares in Braille.

The city model is a donation of the Lions Club Zürich-Turicum to the City of Zurich.
