Museumsstrasse 2     more than a year ago
The Platzspitz is a park behind the Swiss National Museum next to the main railway station on the headland between the two rivers Sihl and Limmat. The park made international headlines as Zurich’s needle park at the end of the eighties and the beginning of the nineties: the open drug scene tolerated by the authorities attracted addicts from across Europe. In 1992 the police closed the park and since 1995 no open drug scenes are tolerated in Zurich. Nowadays the Platzspitz is an inviting park full of business people from nearby offices on their lunch break, parents playing with their kids and people generally looking for a relaxing spot in the middle of the city.
