The Locales on Langstrasse

In earlier times a red light district, today a party boulevard: the heart of Zurich’s nightlife beats on Langstrasse.

Langstrasse links the Kreis 4 and 5 districts and, to a certain extent, the whole city: nowhere else in Zurich do so many different people and milieus come together as along the party mile in the heart of Zurich. Whether during the week or on weekends, there is always something going on here – with locales ranging from laid-back bars to noisy and sweaty underground clubs.
