What started in summer 2012 as a temporary project at the foot of the Prime Tower ‒ a beer garden complete with kitchen garden ‒ has since grown into something of an institution, with shops, art, a garden community and a vibrant program of events. In summer, the locale is open daily until midnight.

Mrs Gerold has transformed the austere industrial location into a warm and friendly meeting place for city lovers. The terrace is not just the place that enjoys the sun the longest, but also provides a dramatic view over the railway tracks and, in fine weather, as far as the mountain peaks in the distance.

In fall, when the leaves in the garden start to change color, Mrs Gerold opens the doors to her charming wooden hut, which in the cold months of the year serves as a cozy place of refuge complete with open fireplace and fondue.

Frau Gerolds Garten is an urban island of greenery in the heart of trendy Zurich-West. In fine weather, I recommend going out onto the terrace and watching the trains that have the privilege of arriving in Zurich or sadly have to leave it.
