Shopping, shopping, shopping.

However, most can only look. How do these people make a living? Everything is at least double, triple priced. Definitely worth a stroll, however.

Bahnhofstrasse used to be one of the world's fabled shopping streets, home to elegant shops strung along about a mile running from the train station to the lake. It is still okay for general shopping purposes, and has several major department stores such as Globus and Manor. However, if you are looking for Shopping as an Experience, it hasn't kept... More

i enjoy walking down this street. There are several shops with beautiful jewelry in their windows. Expensive brands are here too, like Hermes, Salvatorre Ferragamo and Dior. Stores with normal prices like H and M, Claire's and Zara are also represented. There is a big Globus, the classy Swiss department store. Sprungli, the famous high end chocolate has 2 stores....

I am not sure how I can be helpful here since I guess any foreign visitor will check out this famous shopping street anyway. Ok, we started by walking the stretch for 15-20min from the Hauptbahnhof (main station) to the other end, the Burklipatze (pier) like before returning to do the shopping or rather window shopping. As a foreign visitor,... More

We were there on a rainy afternoon. Things were expansive but the area was good for walking and sightseeing. We sidestepped on to the adjacent smaller street after a little while and found that those little streets were even better to see. We saw the St Peter Church in the area and it was a nice walking tour around the... More

There are lovely shops in Bahnhofstrasse, but they are expensive! We found similar stores other places in Zurich that were less expensive, but this is apparently the place to go and dress fashionably. We weren't impressed.
