  • I have a great steeple's unusual building is the Church. I know that Word library why? Would like a steeple building and next to the line. It was there that I met a girl, give her a Pestalozzi Park, where it is muleobwassda. She gave me a long or hard work, to explain. If not, he will reach the Park. Zurich people is so friendly.

  • Great archive that goes more than 5 stores beneath the earth!
  • Most known library and building is fantastic. Really nice!
  • Super Lernplätze! Rucksäcke und Taschen bleiben draussen. Getränke sind erlaubt. Während den Prüfungszeiten der Uni überfüllt.
  • the architecture alone is really fascinating. and of course as the biggest library for a few hundred km in every direction it has a certain appeal.
  • The ideal place to make a research to the "Old School" techniques: real books :-)
