About VBG Zurich

VBG Zurich is a Christian student group at the University of Zurich and ETH. The group was founded in 1949 with the intention to promote an authentic and thought through Christian lifestyle. VBG is an interdenominational group, which desires to address pressing questions, as well as to discuss ways to live out the Christain faith in everyday life.


iCafé is the english speaking part of VBG Zurich. It takes place every Thursday from 7.30 to 10.00 pm. We meet at Zeltweg 18 in Zürich (first floor) .


Come and have a time of fun and conversation, make new friends and explore questions relevant to life in Switzerland from a Christian perspective! We offer cultural events, movie and discussion groups, bible study groups, and a lot of funny and crazy moments!!
