A skyscraper of a slightly different kind and one of Zurich’s top attractions: 19 recycled containers rising up vertically to create four sales floors and an observation deck with a view of the Prime Tower. It’s also worth paying a visit to the inside of the tower, which accommodates over 1600 bags and accessories made of old truck tarps. Every one unique and unmistakable. The first container floor also stocks a range of revolutionary F-ABRIC clothing: classic, fashionable basics made of flax and hemp fibres that are compostable at the end of their useful life.

Lots of people come to this hip place for an afterwork drink in this little oasis just near the train station Hardbrücke. Ms Gerold and her garden are hemmed in, by two similar, if unequal, high-flyers: we’re talking Zurich’s most striking pair of highrises. There’s the Prime Tower, cosmopolitan symbol of business and luxury, and the unique Freitag tower. The garden has an unmistakably urbane touch and, thanks to its three Cs – cuisine, concepts and culture – attracts a public that could scarcely be more varied but still manages to find points in common. Hardly surprising, really. This fleck of green in the cityscape with its disused ship’s containers presents Zurich from its most attractiv

At Zurich’s first Acid House Party in 1988, techno pioneer Dieter Meier from Yello of all people was denied entry. That will never happen to him at Acid. Because this uncomplicated mix of a café, bar and shop is delighted to welcome guests of all size, shape and colour. We are more restrictive about letting only our favourite products in – all organically, fair or sustainably produced: like the best coffee in all of Zurich from micro roaster Miró. Or gin, rum and vodka from our own Swiss spirits line. Welcome to the new Zurich Acid House!
