Campus Wädenswil

The city of Wädenswil is nestled into vineyards on the shore of Lake Zurich, 20 minutes from the city of Zurich. Three different locations make up the campus of the ZHAW LSFM: Grüental, Reidbach und Reidbach (RA). With their beautiful green spaces and the exceptional views over the lake they are unique and a big delight over and over again. The stunning views during lunch or an extensive walk through the gardens are only an example of how you can enjoy the campus to its fullest.
