Visitor information

Schulthess Klinik

Visiting times


You can receive visitors between 10.00 am and 9.00 pm every day. We do, however, ask that you consider
treatment times and be considerate of patients your are sharing a room with. Please note that we lock all entrances at 9.00 pm for security reasons. 

Patients in Intermediate Care (IMC; post-operative recovery room)

Patients in Intermediate Care (IMC) can receive visitors between 10.00 am and 9.00 pm – only one visitor per patient for no longer than 15 to 20 minutes at a time. Only patients who are required to stay overnight in Intermediate Care (IMC) may receive visitors. Unfortunately, visits from children under 12 are not allowed.

Patients in the outpatient treatment centre

Patients in our treatment centre unfortunately cannot receive visitors. An exception will be made for parents of children receiving care.

Art at the clinic

In early 2016, the Schulthess Klinik launched an art commission with the aim of building up an innovative collection of art to display at the clinic. The diversity of the different works of art gives the clinic a unique atmosphere and a distinctive character. It can and aims to stimulate discussion and provide pause for thought. Why not take a tour around our clinic and be inspired by the variety of works we have on display?


Our ground-floor bistro is open between 8.00 am and 7.00 pm during the week and between 9.00 am and 7.00 pm at weekends. Fresh coffee from the barista machine, delicious sandwiches and a selection of enticing snacks invite you to take some time to unwind with your visitors. The restaurant on the first floor is just waiting to spoil you with a lavish selection of food to satisfy all tastes from 7.00 am to 2.00 pm on Monday to Friday and from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm on public holidays.


Burning candles are not permitted in our clinic for fire safety reasons.

Charging stations for electric vehicles

In order to drive forward e-mobility, we have worked together with Energie 360° to set up two public charging stations for electric vehicles. The green-marked parking spaces are located directly next to the entrance on the right-hand side. To make charging as convenient as possible, the charging stations are operated with the user-friendly charging service from Energie 360°. Find out more:


Our members of staff can look after your flowers, if needed. Cut flowers make for an inviting atmosphere in your hospital room – potted plants, on the other hand, can carry germs and are therefore not allowed in the clinic. Please note that flowers are not permitted in Intermediate Care (IMC; post-operative recovery room).


Due to the limited number of parking spaces available, we recommend that you use public transport: tram no. 11 or Forchbahn S 18 to Balgrist stop.

Alternatively, you can take our shuttle service from Zurich Stadelhofen station (in front of the station building). This is free for patients and visitors. The shuttle service runs every 40 minutes between 7.40 am and 4.38 pm from Monday to Friday. The service is free for Schulthess Klinik patients. However, if you do come by car, you can park it in the multi-storey car park for a fee.



The health of our patients and staff is important to us. That is why the Schulthess Klinik is a non-smoking zone. The smoking ban also applies to the entrance areas of the clinic. For patients who are mobile enough to leave their rooms, there is a smoking room on the third floor.
