out in the fresh air – outdoor and leisure activities

Frau Gerolds Garten

Geroldstrasse 23/23a

Frau Gerolds Garten is a unique oasis within the trendy Zurich West district.

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.
