WELCOME to the Academicus Create & Play Atelier - a space dedicated to families, kids, the old and the young - the entire community - in the heart of Zurich!


It is a space created with an incredible amount of love and passion, that allows children to engage in countless educational games, play with gorgeous, high quality toys, train sets, build their own structures out of giant building blocks, LEGO, & wooden blocks, read countless books and get creative beyond imagination!

Simply put - it’s a place that lets kids be kids and allows them to enjoy the glories of childhood in a super fun and safe environment!

It is also a fantastic space for parents, grandparents, meetups, nannies, baby-sitters, teachers, friends and adults to gather, enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the lounge area, whilst the kids are engaged, captivated and busy turning into explorers, discoverers and creators!
