How to find us
The Craft Room is located at:
There are several bus and tram stops very close by, and parking is available at two paying carparks or in the blue zone on street.
Laufenstrasse 70 is located in the courtyard off the street Laufenstrasse (behind the houses on the street). Go through the archway marked 72 / 70 (which also leads to the underground parking) and turn left up the steps. Ring the buzzer for The Craft Room.
If you are coming by car, both MParc car park and the Gundeli-Parking are about 5 minutes walk from The Craft Room. MParc itself closes at 8pm (although after then you can still get your car out of the car park) and costs 2CHF for up to 3 hours, Gundeli-Parking is open all night but is more expensive (note that after 9pm you need to use the entrance at the back down J.J.Balmer Strasse).
If you park at MParc, use the pedestrian exit to the right (West) of MParc by the fire escape, turn left and cross at the crossing onto Dornacherstrasse. Continue straight ahead until you reach Laufenstrasse and turn left (between Denner and Sterne Apotheke). The Craft Room is down the driveway marked 72 / 70, see photos above.
There is also plenty of blue zone parking on the street* and surrounding area – but be aware that during the day you can only park for 1 hour. After 6pm parking in the blue zone is unlimited, but spaces can be hard to come by.

* Road works!
At the moment there are many road works around the Gundeli area – the cars, trams and buses are rerouted and there is limited blue zone parking – all the quoted public transport routes are still possible but there may be diversions so I advise you to have a look at the BVB website before planning your route as it seems to change every week at the moment!
