Cabaret Voltaire

You get a special feeling when you know that you're standing in a place where something great started. So is the case with Cabaret Voltaire – the birthplace of dadaism. Together with a group of his peers, the German poet and playwright Hugo Ball (who was in exile in Switzerland at the time) opened the now-famous café/cabaret in 1916.

After a long period of relative decline, Cabaret Voltaire was reborn in 2004 – now as a stage for modern-day art happenings.
