Must see artist park near Zurich
Sep 2021
Incredibly amazing park very close to Zurich. Weber is Switzerland's Gaudi, only far less known. If you can, seek a guided tour, or read about it, as there is so much more to it than just what you can figure out on your own. And if you're lucky, you might bump into Mrs Weber, who still lives there in the house, is very sweet, and has obviously great anecdotes to tell about her late husband's and her joint work.

Un endroit hors du temps, incroyablement beau
Oct 2020 • Family
We had the feeling of entering a fairy tale with all the fabulous creatures surrounding us. We really enjoyed this park, I don't know why some say it is a visit of 1h at maximum, we have 2 children of less than 3 years old and we spent 1h and a half and we could have stayed more. It is only a pity the place is not well indicated, we had some difficulties to find where to park the car and how to get there. The one who gave us the tickets was very friendly.
IMPORTANT to know: it is only open on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. And you should better eat before arriving, there was no restaurant open whatsoever inside, at least not today.
We will come back, we really loved this place and we hope it will be open to public for a long time.

impressive art
Sep 2019 • Friends
I’ve visited the sculpture park twice within a short ti me. First as part of a business trip and then about a week later, after I heard about the interest of my parents.
I'm not often seen in art galleries, nor have I been very involved with art in the sense of paintings, sculptures, etc. in the past. But I am open minded. Just because I don't understand something doesn't mean it has „no reason to exist“. You never finished learning 😁
To cut a long story short, a visit is highly recommended. I’ll certainly go and discover something new again. The quantity and dimensions of the sculptures, everything is handmade plus the perseverance of the artist, despite decades of headwind from various groups, is so impressive 👍🏼😎

Fairy tale stapled on a hill
Mar 2018 • Couples
Bruno Weber park is a magical place. The location on top of the hill is a big part of its beauty. And yes, it's obviously under constant renovation because it is so huge and most of the sculptures are covered in a layer of small, colorful plates, which is a part of his signature style, but very easy to be consumed over time. It is definitely the place to go visit for any art inthusiast with an athletic build. But if you're a 300 lb couch potato, there's not much for you to do in an outdoor oriented state like Zürich to begin with, let alone BW park. As for the 18 CHF fee, what other activity can you engage in Zurich that costs less than 20 at the very least? That's their economy standard.

Quirky, but run down
Sep 2017 • Friends
This is quirky little sculpture park, but given you have to pay to get in, I expected it to be taken care of. Instead if was quite gloomy and you could tell it’s no longer was what it once were. I wouldn’t say it was a disappointment but given it’s a short drive from Zurich, this might not be something you’d like to do if you’re only in Zurich for a long weekend.

just odd, and not in a good way.
Sep 2017 • Friends
Its a little weird. The sculptures are apparently 'gaudi-esq' but as someone who has seen gaudi buildings in Spain then I think you need to be using some hallucinogens to see the similarity. Possible that is what was going on when the 'park' was constructed. 
Its not easy to get around if you are infirm or disabled. Lots of the areas are roped off and I think someone should inspect the pond outside the 'house' as it looks like a big breeding area for mosquitoes. 
There is limited parking. Its 18CHF per adult to get in, its not open every-day. The restaurant is VERY expensive for what is available - we had brunch there.
Its halfway between Dietikon and Spreitenbach and not easy to get to without a car, but to be honest I'm not sure why anyone would bother. 
I live nearby and it took 5 years for me to visit and I certainly won't be back nor would I suggest our house guests waste their time here.

Creative mind of Bruno Weber
Aug 2017 • Family
We went to the park for our afternoon trip. We live nearby, so decided to take a walk in Bruno Weber park. It was much better than I expected. I expected few artworks in the park. But what you get is a kind of a theme park. The fantasy of Bruno Weber was wild with rich imagination.

What was disappointing and the reason for my average rating, was firstly the price. The entrance fee is way too high. 18CHF per person. The park is not that big as I expected. Therefore the walk I had planned was much shorter than I wanted to be. And the last thing is, many parts and attractions are closed, due to maintenance so you are not able to access all parts of the park and therefore the 18CHF is a bit rude.

But if you forget about the fee and see it as a open gallery of Bruno Weber work, it is worth the visit.

Visually magical!
Nov 2016 • Family
The place is very unorthodox and is a visual treat. The experience is a visit to a fairytale enchanted forest. Perhaps the park is not speckless and neat as most heavily commercial attractions but it only adds to its authenticity and charm. Do not expect a theme park but judge it as a work of art with all the imperfections only strengthening the incredible story behind the place.

So incredibly disappointing
Apr 2017 • Family
While the park is optically beautiful and the sculptures fascinating the trust in charge of maintaining the park should be debriefed on how incredibly difficult it is to make use of their park as a family with smaller children (under the age of 10). Entrance is rather pricey (18 francs an adult and 6 francs for children - under 3 is free). There are several places out of bounds which are not at ALL demarcated as such and many people were wondering about there before a lady came out and rudely told everyone to go away. You can also only consume what you buy on the premises which is ridiculous (9 francs for a bottle of water) and packed lunches or beverages from home inside the park are not permitted. Again - we were 3 families of 6 adults and 7 children and when the little ones got hungry we had to cut the trip short and leave to eat in the parking lot (there is only a kiosk there - no restaurant). Horribly organised for families but probably worth a stop if you have already eaten and don't mind paying 9 francs for water and are without children.

All in all we paid 42 francs to look at only some parts of the park since much of it was under renovation and other parts not accessible (although you seem to need to guess which parts these are) and we had to cut the trip short because we needed to vacate to the parking to eat a sandwich.

Very disappointed.

Overpriced, unmaintained, many attractions closed for access
Apr 2017 • Family
We had high expectations for this place. Unfortunately we were vastly disappointed.
We got family ticket for 44 CHF (44 USD) for our family of four, which is a lot for what you get to see and do (for comparison, for 65 CHF you can get the family ticket to Museum of Transport in Luzern - Verkehrshaus - and spend there the whole day having fun).
In Weber's park you should expect to spend up to 1 hour, perhaps 1.5 h at most.
Majority of the most interesting items are closed for access, e.g.: observation tower, "dragon bridge", "the weird castle" - all closed. Perhaps due to security reasons.
The park itself is tiny and there is nothing to do at all - only walk and look around.
The general feel is: the place was abandoned long time ago and is slowly falling apart.
If you are an art expert, perhaps, you will find this place interesting from artistic perspective. However, if you expect to spend half a day here with your kids - you will be disappointed.
If the park is ever renewed and interactive component is added - then it can become an interesting place to go, but not today.
