Zurich´s western district provides a very special kind of trip back in time. This extremely popular and trendy part of town used to be the city´s industrial and working-class district. It is still undergoing constant change.

  • Discover the trendy Zürich-West district 
    Learn the history of this former industrial area 
    Marvel at the rich architectural variety 

Gone are the days when machines rattled and clouds of soot hung in the air: Zurich-West recently evolved into a hotspot for night owls and early adopters. This tour investigates the former industrial district with its architectural contrasts between old and new, showcases successfully repurposed buildings and spaces, and delves into the fascinating history of this up-and-coming neighborhood.

These days, epicureans cruise the numerous international restaurants, fashionistas dig for gold in the stylish boutiques beneath the arches of the viaduct, and architecture fans love the structural contrasts that make this district so extraordinary.
