Rent Museums, Movie Theaters, or Stages for Private Events

Surrounded by art and cultural history: Zurich is home to many creative, visionary, or historical venues for private or corporate events.

How about an apéro in the villa where Richard Wagner found his inspiration for “Tristan und Isolde”? Or a concert in the house where the Swiss reformer, Zwingli, once lived?

Whether an exhibition, presentation, seminar, or private celebration – in Zurich, various museums and historical and cultural locations provide an atmospheric framework for events of all kinds. In the museums, events can also be combined with private guided tours through the collections or current exhibitions.
