Arts and craft combined

Established by the Ernst Hohl Cultural Foundation in the centre of Zurich in 2006, Haus Appenzell represents a showcase for Appenzell Ausserrhoden, Appenzell Innerrhoden and the region of Toggenburg. Our aim is to bring the traditional and contemporary arts, crafts, and way of life as cultivated and lived in the region around the Alpstein to urban Zurich, to the Swiss public in general, and to other countries. Housed in a beautiful neo-Renaissance building, we show the rich culture and manifold traditions of the region, combine them with foreign cultures, and promote them nationally and internationally.


Our next exhibition "Wooden from traditional to current" opens on 6th October 2023.

Opening hours from 6.10.2023 to 27.4.2024:

Wed–Fri 13.00–17.00
Sat 11.00–17.00
Sun–Tue closed

Free entry (collection)
Entrance: St. Peterstr. 16, 8001 Zurich

We look forward to your visit!
