  • The beautifully restored, eccentric Villa offered for a relaxing stroll outside the hectic centre of Zurich; In addition to the relatively small area of the Museum the very beautiful park, near botanical gardens or the Lake area at the Zürihorn are to name a few. Too bad that the larger upper part only once a week in a tour can be visited, since used as a Office for homeland security activities; given the beauty of the rooms in this public House almost an insult to the visitors. What gives us this attitude? Does the cultural elite as previously the money elite? The cashier is signposted so minimalist that is unclear, where admission is paid; the lady behind the counter responded, because even arg unfriendly, as it already lost in the modest exhibition rooms on the ground floor. Small illustrative and playful exhibition on the theme of building culture in Switzerland for laymen; the temporary exhibition "shelter is not enough" in the basement is rather disappointing, since building in the care of asylum is stripped only.

  • The Villa was built in the late 19 century for a wealthy planter. Turns out his name was Villa village on Sumatra, the GDS planter owned fields. Very beautiful building. Inside the twisted wooden staircase glass dome. Many bas-relief medallions adorn the walls and the floor. The Park is small but beautiful. His once-specifically the municipality repurchased to here failed railroad.

  • Very beautiful and wonderful place in Zurich. Don't expect to see in an Italian Villa with a park. The Park is certainly not very large, but cozy, and suitable for quiet walks with family and children. Inside the Villa there is a small Museum of its creation, as well as the magnificent stained-glass ceiling. Take an hour of your time and be sure to visit. After a visit to recommend a walk on the shore of the Lake, where the Casino! Very beautiful place for recreation and hiking.

  • Beautiful historic building inspired by colonial times. Opulent tapestry and painted ceilings. Sitting in its original park with the vegetable patches now built up with apartment blocks.
  • Absolutely beautiful villa combining european and asian elements built by business man Fürchtegott Grob who made a fortune with tobacco in Sumatra.
  • ABSOLUTELY WORTH A VISIT!
  • Lovely find while walking up towards the botanic gardens. A group of cyclists appeared to have stayed overnight or visited early in the morning. I just really enjoyed walking the grounds and taking photos of the brilliant architecture.
  • Nice:)

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.
