In the heart of Zurich’s Old Town is the history-steeped Barfüsser locale, where guests enjoy life with delicious cocktails and sushi.
Place steeped in history
The place where in the 13th century mendicant friars built a small pilgrim’s hostel to offer shelter and to care for the sick became in the 1950s and 60s a place of freedom and one of the most important meeting places for gays in Europe.
Reopened in 2002, the front part of the locale was transformed into a sushi restaurant and the lounge into a meeting place for a colorful mix of guests.
Over the centuries, the ideals of openness, kindness, and tolerance have endured ‒ something that guests experience already on their first visit. And the food, like the guests, is fantastic.
Due to the constantly changing Covid 19 measures, it is currently impossible to keep all opening hours on the zuerich.com website up to date. Therefore, please check the website of the respective businesses or institutions before visiting a restaurant, shopping or museum.
We thank you for your understanding and wish you a pleasant stay in Zurich.
