Have a look at this recent article from the FAZ (translated from german)

Zurich is hip-circuit with the Swiss peacefulness

Dreamer students and artists, bankers and lawyers - they all do not really know who currently has the say in this part of Zurich. No one doubts, however, the fact that you are moving here in a trendy district, the most important focal point of urban diversity in all of Switzerland. Zuri-West, as the locals call it, is a radical break out of order and cozy homeliness, which the Swiss had needed just once a counterpart to the usual conglomeration of elegant Bahnhofstrasse, old-fashioned low-village and cultivated park scenery at the lake. The former industrial area of Zurich is later, but more forscherer experiment with a turbulent urbanity.

In the early evening people flock from their offices, workshops and stores, and many of them meet in Mrs. Gerold's Garden, an eccentric outdoor pub from stacks of containers, in fact, sprouting herbs on beds, in addition to also run railroad tracks on which the minute the trains and S-Bahn trains pass through the Central Station. Direct neighbors is also a dreary dormitory of the Salvation Army, behind the turn rises the glass facade of the Prime Tower, Zurich's highest office buildings with the most expensive rents in the city. The Pfingstweidstraße, during the day the artery of the district is, while the deterrent day concrete pillar of piled in the dark glow dull and bloodless after dark by a light installation. Under the bridge ducks of the same station, which it did not exist fifteen years ago, but now belongs to the ten most frequented Switzerland.

The Escher-Wyss-Platz is not a place, but a transport hub with three tram lines that rattle around under an American-style urban motorway on concrete stilts. If here early in the morning stagger the last revelers from the clubs, loaded the workers in the adjacent warehouses already the first truck. The Turbinenplatz in turn is really a place of Zurich's biggest even, but he remembers not just in their name, but also in its plant to a place somewhere between Novosibirsk and Vladivostok.

On the Josefwiese, an idyllic city park, the evening falls the shadow of the incinerator, the blows as one of the last industrial relics in the district filtered, ecologically correct water vapor in the sky. The cute row houses of the Swiss architect Hans Bernoulli, created early in the twentieth century for working families, now cost a million francs and are home to a wealthy clientele, while compared to try on the floors of the cooperative "power plant" residential communities alternative lifestyles. Plans for a home for asylum seekers are driven by open-minded contemporaries, but are facing resistance at conservative shopkeepers and residents of extremely expensive lofts.

A newly opened design hotel operates an Israeli restaurant, where the Saxon waitress in the evening for Oriental Ratatouille a Lebanese red wine recommends the midst of his colorful lobby. The Hotel Rivington in turn is not a hotel but a bar whose entire interior has been brought from a wrecked hotel in New York, including furniture, counters, decorative clock and neon signs. Not infrequently land Visitors who reserve a table in the elegant restaurant, La Salle, by mistake a few street corners further into the dining rooms of Les Halles, where they are confronted instead with white tablecloths with self-service, rickety chairs and a charming and Francophile chaos.

At the beginning of the subculture with its many nightclubs, pubs and squatters in the previously closed areas had penetrated behind the guarded factory gates. Then took over artists, designers and alternative shops the empty halls and offices. Finally, when the authorities made the quarter the subject of urban and cantonal structure plans, began a mobilization of construction cranes, excavators and jackhammers, as she had Zurich until then never experienced.

The actual launch, the time course hardly anyone heard, gave twenty years ago, the brothers Markus and Daniel Freitag. They had no idea of what they put in there gear. From their dorm to the hardware bridge they saw every day hundreds of trucks on the high street past growl and came up with the crazy idea to cut and process to Pocket-offs whose disused Plan. Your first patched with a sewing machine copies they sold just across the bridge.
Initially, the tram was

A Pocket vernissage at the "heavy traffic bar" next to the guardrail was the beginning of a meteoric success story: from the garage company to a "lastwagenplanenrezyklierenden bag industry" which now has one hundred and fifty employees. The Zurich Museum of Design has been dedicated to the pockets of a special exhibition, a single piece is part of the design collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, other models have been recognized as milestones in the "urban fashion". As a sales and storage space, the brothers chose on the free-standing Gerold area a tower of ten stacked containers, which quickly became an icon of Zuri-West. Long since he is one of the most important photo opportunities in the city, and the European Football Championship 2008, he graced next to the Matterhorn and the Lucerne Chapel Bridge as one of three main motifs, the official Swiss brochure.

Of course, other boast of having sparked the decisive spark in Zurich-West: "In the beginning was the tram," it says at the transport companies of Zurich, and is in fact the prelude to an important stage. Because had already been decided as 2007 that a streetcar would drive across the district, various construction projects get underway. While critics call that the now opened connection was hardly busy, but in the tram center you look into the future: "If the trains were full already, we would have done something wrong," it says. "What we have to be there before it really gets going, so people do not get used to the car."
What will become of the chaotic non-places?

Another milestone is the Prime Tower, which opened in December 2011 - with 126 meters height rather a "Wolkenkratzerli" as a skyscraper but still dominates the cityscape in Zurich West. The Clouds restaurant with bar and bistro on the top floor has since been by far the best views in Zurich: the entire city and Lake Zurich heads to the Alps in the background. The number of visitors is enormous. "We can take advantage of the situation," rejoice operators, because of the high rise solitaire is likely to stand for a while alone; plans for more skyscrapers at this level have not yet left the drawers. But for even the wind blowing around the skyscraper different than before, and that suddenly flows two thousand bankers, business consultants and lawyers in the evening out of the building, has the social change in the quarter accelerated strongly.

The way out of the subculture out is not yet complete, but already far advanced. "Zuri-West is on the way to grow," says confident in the Building Department, although it also admits here that the casual entertainment in one form or another must be preserved. In the remaining niches such as Gerold area but there is unrest. What will become of chaotic non-places like this? "Did the city not here to build a convention center," asks a guest in Mrs. Gerold's garden. "Just now, no more," someone else says. "Everything is in motion," said a third, shrugging. The Freitag brothers, whose rusty container tower still holds the position here, have to come to terms with the progress can not be stopped.

The bistro Les Halles is one of the pioneers in the district, that persist and to her own surprise, have more success than ever. Without concept created at the beginning just a snack for the truck driver who delivered their charge to a trading center for vegetables, the restaurant has with its quirky touches and the connected health food store now achieved cult status. The staff from the Prime Tower now also provide lunch for a sometimes hardly to be overcome onslaught. The landlord wants the motley-chaotic nature of its bistros actually change anything, and yet the audience has converted its influence on the atmosphere in the pub.

The most compelling projects in Zurich-West blend the traditional industrial culture in the finest and most original with a new use. In the former Löwenbräu brewery at first clubs and discos were quartered, but has left intact after an extensive restoration, brick facades and primary structures of the building, they had to give way. Now an art gallery, the Migros Museum and a number of galleries have settled in the mighty rooms, which are spread over the four floors and combines an outstanding center for contemporary art. With the opening of the so-called Schiffbau in 2000, in turn, the municipality of Zurich has set a decisive index. On the grounds of Maschinenfabrik Escher-Wyss, once the largest industrial complex of Switzerland was the shipyard, which had earlier produced ships for Swiss rivers and lakes, to a branch of the playhouse. Three experimental stages have thrown a major cultural anchor in an area that also in an office would desert of real estate speculators can be changed.
Alternative Station Road in the viaduct arches

In a reversing triangle on the eastern edge of Zuri-West meet for a century the railway viaducts Wipkinger and Latvians. Top still thundering trains, but buy in the free space between the railroad tracks and people consume in a market hall now delicacies of the very best: goat and buffalo cheese, oysters and asparagus, Champagne and Chardonnay, fresh ravioli and foie gras, nougat pralines and milk truffles, fish soup and tapas plate.

The fifty-two adjoining viaduct arches rented an urban foundation at moderate prices to cultural institutions and operators with exceptional business ideas. As an "alternative Bahnhofstrasse" is meant here, because there are not always the same stores, but local fashion labels such as amalgam, fashion slave, Komplementair or Nudie jeans. In addition, furniture stores and design studios have moved, to a creche, an open meeting of the Catholic Church and the Social Club El Tango classes and dance nights. Were the viaducts once a barrier that separated neighborhoods, so they are now creating a welcome connection between the adjacent residential streets, the parks in the Josefwiese and the newly-used industrial sites.
Industrial nostalgia in gourmet restaurant

One of the reclassified factories is the historic Foundry Hall of Escher-Wyss, which was completely gutted. Under the trademark Puls 5 they are now housed in a massive space of fifty-five feet in length, a versatile exhibition space as well as numerous small businesses. The most beautiful rescue of elements of industrial culture in the present is here a restaurateur succeeded, who has integrated mechanical relics from the foundry in its gourmet restaurant. The decoration of the Gnüsserei and important elements of furniture made from original parts of the factory: from the melting tank on iron beams, shelves, metal plates and other equipment up to the sinks in the toilets.

The exclusive use of the colors Brown, Black and Orange completes the composition and brings the industrial nostalgia with the current service virtuosity in harmony. So good for this fine little restaurant beside the emblematic prestige objects Lowenbrau, Schiffbau (my home) and Wipkingerviadukt a symbol for the radical transformation of Zuri-West.


The place is excellently connected in Switzerland! Tram, Bus, Train/Metro, easy access to all major highways! Of course also walking around for sports leisure and shopping as well as cycling.
