A Floating Theatre in Zurich

Have you ever seen the “Herzbaracke” moored up near Bellevue in Zurich and wondered what it is? It’s actually a cross between a house boat and a “floating theatre”, equipped with a restaurant and a stage and all beautifully decorated in the style of “la Belle Epoque”.

The project started as an alternative culture program in 1998 and the construction itself is more of a raft than a boat as it doesn’t have a mast. Inside it is clad in pine wood and lit by oil lamps, and decorated with barrel organs, musical boxes and lots of Art Nouveau pictures and postcards.

Federico Emanuel Pfaffen and his troupe perform dance productions, recitals, concerts, pantomime, literary cabaret in a very friendly atmosphere right in the heart of Zurich. There is an ever changing program featuring orchestra and song evenings, jazz and vaudeville, theatre pieces and  even magic shows. And guests who know they’ll get hungry during the evening can book a meal together with their entrance ticket.
