  • I came from so far to here, to see a dance exhibition? Really? Too weak I was hoping a lot more from here.  more »

  • We went to great lengths to track down and travel to this museum, spending a total of over 50 francs for transportation and admittance for our group of 4. Prior to our visit I visited their website which says this: "Museum für Gestaltung in the Toni-Areal- The new location in the Toni-Areal, presents temporary exhibitions and brings together its four collections – Design, Graphics, Applied Art and Poster – with their 500'000 objects. For the first time the Museum für Gestaltung presents its collections to the public in the Schaudepot. Daily tours offer insights into this collection of international importance." Imagine our disbelief to find that the real 'collection' displayed is ONE room of travel posters. That's it. And the person in charge told us it was OUR responsibility to visit the website and find this out. The problem is, they do not post this information, nor is it posted before you pay for admittance. No offer of a refund when we made an issue of the lack of honesty regarding the exhibits. Shame on them.
  • The building is already worth it. It's a nice place to study or have a coffee as well. The exhibitions are well curated and the personell was very open and friendly. They showed us the exhibition catalog when we wanted to know some extra infirmation and also offered to hand out questions to their curator if we needed anything specific. I hope to visit again soon!
  • Not very mainstream but they really pay attention to details! Keep up the great work!
  • Planless and mediocre exhibition of random design pieces. Probably due to the temporary move from the renovated museum to Toni Areal... try again once it's back where it belongs ...
  • I have been there to see Les Suisses de Paris, really interesting.

Where to stay in Zurich

As the financial hub of the country, it shouldn't come as a surprise that staying in Zurich usually comes at a price. The city puts emphasis on its glamorous four- and five-star hotels and international chains that appeal to traveling professionals. There a handful of hostels and guesthouses for the budget-conscious traveler. When staying in Zurich, you'll find that the majority of the accommodation offerings are in close proximity to the city core, either on the left or right bank. The left bank is the glitzier of the two, with its grand restaurants, shops, and proximity to the banks and train station. The right side, as home to the Old Town, charms with its historical atmosphere. Here you'll find independently owned boutique hotels and some mid-range options. The city also sports several hotels geared toward wellness, with spas and saunas. These tend to be pricey too, but you're guaranteed a truly relaxing retreat.
