About us

The Fred Tschanz Group shows Zurich from its most hospitable side. Our locations are real Zurich originals and we actively cultivate and lead them into the future with heart and mind.


We do business with sense and sensibility. We meet our guests and employees as equals and with an open heart.  We also treat partners, tenants and suppliers as though they were our regular guests.


Our businesses and properties are true Zurich originals. They are located in the heart of the city and have close ties to the city’s life. In short: if you want to experience Zurich, you have come to the right place – no matter whether you were born here, have moved here or are just visiting.


Fred Tschanz is a recognised name in Zurich. We are aware of this responsibility and carry the pioneering spirit of our founder into the future: through fair business conduct and long-term thinking free of short-lived trends.
