Quest to the West

Icon

Follow your guide on a quest to the Zürich West! We stroll along the Sihlquai, show you our favourite hangouts, hop on a tram, and take you on a ride towards the city's industrial past. District 5 and its former factories have turned into a popular urban quarter with trendy food venues, fashion boutiques, studio galleries, art museums and night clubs. 

However, the industrial history is also connected to the history of immigration. Today, about 32% of Zürich's population is made up of foreign nationals. But what's the story behind this number and what does the integration process look like? Take this detour to find out.

On this tour we also talk about Zürich's alternative culture scene.
