    Remains of Roman baths were discovered in 1983 during the renovation of a toy shop. They were uncovered and can now be viewed over a metal grille at any time. Showcases and texts complement the small exhibition in Thermengasse.After the long journey from Como across the Alps, the Roman thermal baths of ancient Zurich offered the first opportunity to take a bath. They are located directly at the bridge and wine square, where the goods to be transported were transferred from sea to river ships. This was the only way to continue on the wild river Limmat to the north. The settlement around the Roman customs post on the Lindenhof flourished.The thermal baths were heated and formed a center of public life - at least until the Romans 405/406 withdrew from Zurich.
