Intro

In the last 10 years the industrial wasteland to the west of Zurich has grown into a new bright lights district: The blue-green shimmering Prime Tower, the University of Arts on the Toni-Areal and newly awakened life beneath the arched viaducts. And the nicest way to view all this and the constantly made changes is on foot or by bicycle.

Where ships were once built and motors bolted together, today you view a colorful urban lifestyle. And undisputed highlights - in addition to Zurich’s new Prime Tower in the west of course; which is Switzerland’s second tallest building - is Frau Gerolds Garten: the charming city garden with restaurant and bar, with neighboring Friday container tower and leisure and pleasure mile to stroll beneath the arched viaducts.

Those roaming the district can’t help but notice the frequent changes and discover new and old oases: Including the large atrium of the new University of the Arts, the sprawling Josefwiese meadow with its outdoor café and the gigantic hall with Nietturmbar in the old shipbuilding establishment. And a peek at the cultural agenda reveals that Zurich West has something to offer for all tastes and pleasure seekers - whether in the club, cinema or theater.
