Zurich, Switzerland

In the 1940s, the style-conscious Gustav Zumsteg began giving the Kronenhalle artworks from his collection. This allowed guests to dine beneath a village scene by Marc Chagall, or come face to face with the suns and moons of Joan MirĂ², or the southern lights of Pierre Bonnard or the dramatic skies of a Georges Braque. The Kronenhalle is famous throughout the world for its restaurant and bar, where friends, families and business acquaintances have been meeting since 1924. Its proximity to the Opera House, Schauspielhaus and Kunsthaus make the Kronenhalle a popular meeting point for lovers of literature, art and music.
