Theater Neumarkt

This innovative theater in the old-town was established in 1965 and often shows experimental plays in which the spectators become part of the action. Some of the plays are performed on a 'pay-what-you-can-afford' basis, catering to culturally interested people who might otherwise not be able to afford a night at the theater. Theater Neumarkt holds around 200 visitors, but all the chairs are mobile and that opens up even more flexibility for creative performances.

Zoological Museum

One of the best things about Zurich being a university town is that the university has several free museums. The Zoological Museum is the main attraction, not only because of the microscope tables, furry games and video projections, the giant giraffe and stuffed birds. No, the best attraction is getting there! A Polybahn which is accessible from the tram station Central, brings you to the terrace where many of the university buildings are found. This beautifully restored, antique mode of transport is a special treat for children of all ages.

Strandbad Mythenquai

This is a city beach on lake Zürich with a beautiful, 250 meter (820 feet) long stretch of sand which gives the bathing experience a Mediterranean feel. There is a separate area for non-swimmers and a jumping tower with different level platforms. For children, there is a large play area. A modern self-service restaurant right by the beach and with view of the Alps caters for hungry swimmers. Further, you can shop in the boutique or enjoy a relaxing massage. Parts of the venue can be rented for special occasions or company parties during the day or in the evenings.


Established in 1660, the Johanna-Spyri-Museum treasures memories and works of its namesake—Spyri—a Swiss writer. The museum is divided into three parts; the Keller or the basement room displays photos and literary works. Then comes the Spyri Stube, which holds personal items owned by the author and her family. The Heidi room is dedicated to the famous character created by Johanna. Call for further details.


This is where the heart of Switzerland beats: the biggest banks, two luxurious hotels and the traditional café "Sprüngli" surround this square that consists mainly of a big streetcar station. The place is scarcely more than a traffic crossing without cars - just pedestrians and streetcars. You can distinguish the exclusivity of this place by the wardrobe of the female passers-by and the volume of high-class shops nearby. The square thus represents the real character of Zurich: a little bit bourgeois and conservative like the "gnoms of Zurich".

Zürcher Spielzeugmuseum

The Zürcher Spielzeugmuseum (Zurich Toy Museum), which is found on the fifth floor of a house in one of Zurich's oldest neighborhoods, contains over 1200 antique toys from all around Europe. The oldest toys, here, date back to the early 18th Century, and range well into the 20th Century. The toy collection reflect the history and culture of the times they belong to.
