Winterthur and surroundings

With world-class art collections, a picturesque Old Town and a lively music and comedy scene, Winterthur boasts a veritable firework of culture. Ample parks and gardens give the city a mix of urban flair and local naturalness. Because our hotel is centrally located, many attractions and sights can be reached by foot. Moreover, public transport tickets are included for our guests.


Technorama allows hands-on experiences of hundreds of natural and technical phenomena. At countless experiment stations, visitors can discover natural phenomena first-hand and with all the senses. “Come to grips” – in both senses of the word – with the world.

Unlike other museums, everything in Technorama can be touched and experimented with: hands on!

Opening hours

Technorama is open daily, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
