Zurich has been a melting pot for influential personalities since the early days. James Joyce, Richard Wagner, and Erika Mann are just a few of the celebrated figures who loved and significantly shaped the city of Zurich.
But why has Zurich been considered a safe haven and an island of creativity and freedom for centuries? During this informative and fascinating walking tour, participants will not only get to know the many famous personalities who have lived in Zurich, but also their favorite places – such as the Odeon, the Cabaret Voltaire, or the “Neederthorpe”, as James Joyce called the Niederdorf.
This guided walk provides an entertaining insight into Zurich´s history and also shows why the city is particularly popular among artists.
