As a relic of rural culture, the houses on Burenweg are a remembrance of the times not so distant ago when animals were kept and wine was cultivated in today's Hirslanden neighbourhood.

Despite numerous alterations, the protected building from the 16th century still retains large parts of the original plank and post-construction. With the overall restoration, the farmhouse with its associated kitchen garden will become a living witness to the rural past within today's Zurich urban area.
