About your host

I'm a social worker and have worked as an intern at an addiction center in Zurich. Now I study history part time at the University of Zurich. I can offer a very humanistic, historically correct view on the history of drug abuse in Zurich, the political changes and the policy of today.

What else you should know

We will walk through a park and on a gravel path. Please wear shoes that you are comfortable walking in. We will only walk for about 20 minutes in total. Public transport is very near.

What to bring

If the weather is hot, bring sun screen and a hat. If you wear high heels, the walk might be a bit unconvenient - it's a gravel path :-)

Where you'll be

We will meet at the Zurich HB bus station, and make our way to the public park "Platzspitz", where our tour begins. I will give you an in depth view on what this place used to look like and take you in a beautiful little walk to our next stop, the former "Bahnhof Letten". If the sun is out, we will have a refreshment there while I answer your questions and give you inside knowledge and my professional view on todays drug policy in Zurich.
