Visiting the town of Winterthur

Winterthur’s main draw are its excellent museums; these aside, the pedestrianized Old Town has some charm once you get off the main shopping streets – the elegant medieval Stadtkirche, for example, with its luridly kitschy modern murals, is worth a look – but other than enjoying the atmosphere at one of the many street cafés there’s not much to aim for.

If you have extra time, or if Victorian industrial architecture lights your fire, you should head southwest under the tracks into the Sulzer-Areal district, where hulking disused brick-built factories are slowly being reclaimed as atmospheric theatre spaces, bars and skating arenas.
