Climb Onto a Roof in Zürich

Love a cityscape view? So do we, and these spots are some of our favorite elevated addresses in Zurich, whether for gazing or lingering with a glass of wine:

  • Frau Gerolds Garten: This beer and kitchen garden started out as a temporary summer project, and has since become a favorite terrace meeting space for locals and visitors. The views include mountains and railway tracks, and winter weather means the doors to the quirky wooden terrace hut are open to provide a warm and cozy sanctuary with an open fireplace and a fondue menu.
  • Quai 61: Located lakeside, this restaurant-bar-salon is suspended above the water with terrific views of mountain peaks; plus a yummy menu of local market ingredients prepared with an Italian twist.
  • Hiltl Dachterrasse: Enjoy gourmet vegan and vegetarian fare or a sparkling aperitif at one of the city’s most beautiful addresses, high above the energetic Bahnhofstrasse shopping street.
  • Rooftop Bar & Restaurant: This sixth-floor gathering place is a popular spot for delicious Asian-inspired cuisine and cocktails.
  • Hard One: Sky-high clubbing doesn’t get any better than this rooftop dance spot, located in trendy Zurich West. There’s also a gorgeous green garden space for light bites.
  • The View: In a great location near both the lake and opera house in the Seefeld district, the rooftop space in this classic neo-Baroque hotel building is home to the award-winning Restaurant Opera and spectacular views of Lake Zurich and Swiss Alps.
  • Griederbar: Enjoy selections from a menu of gourmet snacks served up with stunning views of the Paradeplatz.
  • bQm: Beer, pizza and the rooftops of Zurich are why insiders and locals flock to this rooftop terrace. The space is also used for live music; lectures and creative events; and fun-filled quiz nights.
  • George Bar & Grill: You’ll find this elegant bar and lounge terrace space on the top-floor penthouse of the Haus Ober.
