Districts 3, 4 and 5 are pulsating like nowhere else in Zurich. This is where it all comes together – old and new, design and demolition, the exotic or traditional Zurich flair – in these creative districts with an edgy & gritty mind of their own. Waiting to be discovered in an area of just a few square kilometres are very special shops, studios and creative workshops but also cafés, bars and restaurants. This is where our city is as open-minded and lively as it gets. We tracked down the best addresses and compiled them for you. Have fun exploring!
