The former barracks are definitely a must-visit: On the one hand, thanks to two park areas with an enchanting labyrinth garden. On the other, for the massive buildings dating back to 1876. Not to mention the monumental rectangular shape of the house walls, reminiscent of their military use. It’s a good thing, Zurich urbanites embrace such spaces and breathe love and multicultural joy into the buildings and green areas when the 1st of May is celebrated again each year – a time for wild dancing and eating everything the cultures of the world have to offer.
