Culture lovers, sports and shopping enthusiasts, connoisseurs and families watch out for this: In Winterthur, 16 museums exhibit world art, the romantic and car-free Old Town invites you to stroll and the surrounding countryside inspires with local products, numerous bicycle tours and excursion possibilities.
Experience first-class art and culture
Discover world-class art in the Fotomuseum, in the Oskar Reinhart collection "Am Römerholz" and in the Art Museum, experience an entertaining evening in the Theater Winterthur or in the Casinotheater and listen to our world-class city orchestra, the Musikkollegium.
In addition, both small and large events, such as the Afro-Pfingsten, the Albanifest, the Musikfestwochen, the Jungkunst or the International Short Film Festival, take place regularly.
Discover the city and region of Winterthur
On one of our various guided tours, such as the Old Town tour, the Eulach tour or the Sulzerareal tour, you will discover the sixth largest city in Switzerland from new and surprising perspectives. Souvenirs can be purchased online or at the Tourist Information.
If you prefer to track Winterthur down on your own, you can follow in the footsteps of the fox on the Foxtrail. This tour takes you through the idyllic old town, through former industrial zones, but also out into the countryside.
Winterthur can also be optimally discovered during a game of Urban Golf. On the first Urban Golf Course in Switzerland, you cut off the cobblestones and punch holes in the rubbish bin. Fun factor included!
