Play, dance, party and enjoy – indulge yourself! When the beautiful weather lures us out into the fresh air, there is no stopping us. It’s outdoor season on the Bauschänzli!

The island is calling again! If you want to be among people, come to the Bauschänzli and enjoy our first-rate entertainment and culinary delights. Interested spectators are just as welcome as enthusiastic participants. Those looking for rhythm, harmony and big hits are in exactly the right place on the Limmat. A thrilling programme awaits you!



Enjoy the groove

On Sundays in nice weather you can enjoy an exquisite brunch in the beer garden and the restaurant, up until (approx.) September 15th 2019, from 10:30 to 15:00 with exciting live music performed by selected groups. Our guests are free to choose their favourite dishes from a wide variety of options available at our brunch buffet. Make your reservation in the beer garden or in the restaurant with table service.

Dance evening on the Limmat

What could be better than an outdoor dance evening on an island? Here in the heart of Zurich, the music plays every Thursday evening when the weather is nice from 17:30 to 22:00. Our DJ Janosch plays a wide variety of styles, there is no age limit and, with the professionals from the KAISER TANZSCHULE KAISERTANZ dance school, even untrained dancers quickly get up to speed. And for those who feel like it, there is a short dance workshop from 18:30 to 19:00. May we have this dance?


A hit

The goal is to throw a metal ball as close as possible to a target ball (the jack). It’s played every Tuesday starting at 16:30, when the Bauschänzli is transported to southern France for an evening. The basic rules are simple, fun is guaranteed and you have the whole summer long to cultivate your game on the Limmat!

Tradition on the Bauschänzli

Just as it has every year, the traditional Oktoberfest on the Bauschänzli will also take place in 2019. With lots of music, fun, beer and tasty delicacies. Don’t miss out on Oktoberfest on the Bauschänzli: party like you were in Munich and enjoy the hospitality in Zurich’s fortress, right in the middle of the Limmat.
