These stores had lovely extremely high end goods at prices that are intimidating. Everything that I saw in Switerland was significantly more expensive than anywhere else. There are small shops in areas considerably away from those on this famous shopping street where the quality is also high, but the prices more reasonable.

Bahnhofstrasse has chocolate shops, fashion, and jewellery stores galore - what more could you want? A great afternoon outing.

The Bahnhoffstrasse is a place that one must walk down and I say walk to appreciate the richess of Zurich. It has a great assortment of shops from Manor, Zara, Fielmann, Apple, Coop and so many more I cannot remember their names. Start at the main station and walk towards the lake. It is about 3 kms to the lake... More

Watches, jewellery, designer shops, restaurants - all wonderful for window shopping but you will be seriously ripped off at the jewellery and watch shops as they are ridiculously over priced. Remember they have astronomical rents to pay!!

I was not terribly impressed with this high end shopping district. Basically, it features the same kind of designer shops that you would find on Michigan Avenue in Chicago or Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

The street is very high class, but almost a third of shops are selling uber high end watches!!! I get that Switzerland is famous for selling watches, but if you are not in the market, then all you can do is wander past 30% of the windows drooling at ridiculously priced time pieces. Horses for courses, I guess!!
