Sihlcity Shopping Center

Leisure activities, shopping, and entertainment in the former Zurich paper mill on the River Sihl.

The Sihlcity shopping and leisure center in Zurich’s Enge quarter stands on the site of what was once a paper factory. The 65-meter (213ft) tall brick chimney and three other buildings have been successfully integrated into the “city within the city” and bear witness to this past era.

Sihlcity welcomes visitors with a shopping mall, several movie theaters housed in the Arena Cinemas Sihlcity, a fitness and wellness center, various restaurants and bars, and the Papiersaal concert venue.

The youngest visitors can enjoy themselves at the Minicity childcare facility. Awaiting them here are a cuddly toy zoo, a reading bus with a good choice of books, a movie theater with children’s movies and popcorn, and a large art & crafts corner.

At Christmastime, Sihlcity is transformed into a magical landscape with a fondue chalet, mulled wine stands, and market huts.
