Tours of Zurich: Cleantech Innovations Up Close

The Convention Bureau run by Zürich Tourism helps experience sustainable technologies of the future by arranging group visits on request.

CO2 – Sucked Out of Circulation

It stands on the roof of the refuse processing plant in Hinwil, is powered with waste heat and sucks carbon dioxide out of the air: the world’s first commercial CO2 filter system – a project run by the start-up Climeworks. It's well worth a closer look, as the system holds promise for the future of the climate.

NEST – Construction Methods of the Future Put to the Test

For the first time ever, new sustainable building technologies are being tested under real-life conditions at NEST, an innovative research project at Empa. New units are constantly being installed and removed like Lego bricks. The units are regularly occupied with both residential and commercial spaces. Visitors to NEST today discover the construction methods of tomorrow.

Zurich Main Station – Discovering the Unfamiliar in the Familiar

Switzerland’s busiest railway station is used by 440,000 passengers a day, putting it among the front-runners in Europe. It’s also a shopping center, exhibition hall and meeting place. And beyond the hustle and bustle, there’s even more to spark the imagination.
