IUNR locations

We teach and work in Wädenswil, on the Au peninsula and in Wergenstein

Wädenswil

The premises used for teaching and research purposes by the Institute of Natural Resource Sciences in Wädenswil are located on Campus Grüental and Campus Reidbach and in Schloss Wädenswil. In addition to our state-of-the-art experimental facilities, field laboratories, greenhouses and land for growing crops, the Grüental Gardens and plant collections play a vital role not only in terms of teaching and research, but also in terms of attracting public visitors.

Au peninsula

The Research Group for Viticulture operates a vineyard on the Au peninsula which not only serves as a resource for students studying at ZHAW Wädenswil and the Strickhof Vocational Training Centre, but also produces grapes for ZHAW’s winery.
