About us

The Banana City is a private property and independent hotel. It is located in the multifunctional service center in the SISKA Heuberger Holding AG at a central location close to the main railway station Winterthur, the pedestrian zone and the colleges. Inhabitants of Winterthur call the 200 meter long, curved building lovingly “banana”. Because of the successful conversion of the former industrial construction and the modern glass facade it’s one of the finest and most distinctive buildings of Winterthur.
