Tips

  • WildeHilde

    Super nice old town, but the traffic is very, very slow due to the innumerable short traffic lights

    A town hall stood on the right bank of the Limmat over 700 years ago - in the same place as it is today. The third and current building replaced its wooden predecessor at the end of the 17th century. From the Münsterbrücke you have a nice view of the south side of the town hall and you can see that it is actually built directly over the water.The town hall has largely been preserved in its original condition. It has baroque elements, but in its basic features it corresponds to the style of the Renaissance. Different styles mix inside as well. Exhibited historical objects and works of art tell of political life in Zurich.

    The town hall has been owned by the Canton of Zurich since 1803 and serves as the seat of the Cantonal Council.
    The facade is still largely committed to the late Renaissance. Pilasters of the “three orders” - Doric, Ionic and Corinthian - as well as cornices structure the three floors evenly.

    The town hall is just one of countless sights on the Limmat.
