Ziegel oh Lac

The Ziegel oh Lac, which belongs to the Rote Fabrik, lies directly on the lakeshore with a view of the city – and sometimes even of the Alps.

Located in the industrial halls of the former silk weaving factory, the Ziegel oh Lac has served as a cultural center for the alternative art and music scene for almost four decades. The restaurant functions as a collective and offers good, inexpensive cuisine.

The products that end up in the cooking pots are mostly sourced from organic farms and transformed into vegan, vegetarian, and meat-based culinary delicacies.

When the weather is fine, guests can make themselves comfortable at the long benches or in the converted gondola cabins. Whenever possible, concerts are held on the stage on Tuesday evenings, with the aim of providing a platform for lesser known national and international bands.
