The Kunsthaus is in the heart of Zurich’s old town close to the main railway station and the lake, and is easily accessible by public transport. The Kunsthaus Zürich offers step-free access. All levels of the exhibition and collection galleries can be reached via a wheelchair-accessible lift. We are working constantly to remove barriers and further optimize our service.
