What you'll do

In the city of Zürich there exists the possibility to discover the hidden archaeological past with a special key that gives you access to otherwise closed locations. In 1-2 hours we will walk trough the oldtown of Zürich and trough time. We will walk in the footsteps of the pile dwellers who lived around 3500 BC on stilts in the lake of Zürich. You will discover the celtic origins of the city, the roman spas and the still visible medieval treasures. You will see places that most locals don‘t even know. With my knowledge and experience I will whisk you away trough the turbulent history of Zürich.
Other things to note
Many of the locations are not suitable for wheelchairs or buggys. I can arrange appropiate routes. Kids under 10 don’t need to pay. :-) Just let me know.

Very informative and pleasant experience. I've lived in Zurich for but had never taken a tour of the city and this was a fresh take on a tour. Who knew these interesting places were under our feet the whole time?
