Go West, from industrial to trendy quarter

Discover the quarter which became one icon of the bubbly Switzerland

In a multicultural environment Zurich shows its different expressions of life, from buildings that demonstrate its richness like the Prime Tower, to the Freitag Tower, which is an alternative design icon. Additionally we will see the Schiffbau and the Löwenbräu, which were converted into residential and cultural infrastructures.

During this tour you will see how it was possible to reactivate old buildings with an innovative architecture concept. Zurich West is today a symbol of multicultural Switzerland and it is a place where alternative icons of design like Freitag, symbols of wealth like the Prime Tower and cultural infrastructures like the Schiffbau and the Löwenbräu cohabitate.
