Dine in a History-Steeped Guild House

Dining in style: These Zurich restaurants are housed in history-steeped guild houses.

Zurich’s magnificent guild houses are not just decorative, but also relate a history extending back over centuries. While they serve as meeting places for the respective guilds, some also house first-rate restaurants that are open to the public. The guild houses with public restaurants listed below belong to the oldest guilds in the city, which date as far back as 1336.
