About the Tour

Have you ever wondered - How do blind and visually disabled people
experience the city? What are their biggest challenges? In what way do they imagine the world around them? What can we learn from them about our neighbourhood?

This tour provides answers to these questions while taking you on a walk through one of Zurich's most beautiful neighbourhoods, Hottingen.

The walk starts and ends in the Stiftung Mühlehalde, a center for blind and visually disabled people. It is a one of a kind building in the area, as well as Zurich in general.
