Frau Gerolds Garten
Geroldstrasse 23
8005 Zurich-District 5
.How to get there



Proper beer gardens in Zurich are hard to come by, and certainly not found in the former industrial district of Zurich West. But within the immediate vicinity of Prime Tower, "Frau Gerolds Garten", which opened two years ago, offers what is essentially required in summer: a cool space outdoors with a small but fine selection of food and beverages.

"Frau Gerolds Garten", located in Zurich West and thus the district of Zurich, has had several exciting developments in recent years. Numerous construction projects including the Swiss Mill Tower, Löwenbräu Areal, the Viaduct and last but not least the Prime Tower - the tallest building in Switzerland - have contributed to district 5 becoming the trendy quarter par excellence. Young, urban and creative - just like "Frau Gerolds Garten".

The 2500 square meter large area at Geroldstrasse 23 consists of a garden restaurant and bar, an exclusive range of very trendy shops, including Townhouse, Street-Files, Maiuki, Opia and Making Things. And of course, Frau Gerold’s pride and joy, the garden, where herbs, salads, vegetables and fruit are grown for the restaurant. The unique work of art is complemented by a changing cultural program. From flea markets to pop up shops, gardening classes and movie nights, a colorful seasonal program can be found.


A visit was long overdue in my agenda, owing to numerous positive feedback from friends. Last week, I finally made it, albeit on a rainy evening with a limited dinner menu. But we could not let our mood be spoiled in any way and savored the simple but excellent Wiediker sausages from the butcher basement, accompanied with salad, baba ghanoush and creamy hummus. We had a most pleasurable evening and enjoyed the ambiance, which we felt was a wonderful change from the norm.
