Frau Gerolds Garten is a unique oasis within the trendy Zurich West district. Alongside a kitchen garden, used to supply the restaurant with fresh produce, chilledout bars, and alternative art exhibitions, the outdoor space also offers cool concept stores. The use of the garden changes according to the season. In summer: outdoor dining, a sun terrace, and openair bars. In winter: a cozy winter hut in the wooden pavilion.
