Fewer things could match strolling along the Bahnhofstrasse in Zürich on a sunny day in March. A number of interesting shops where the staff we met were consistently very polite and friendly, even if we early on declared that we are not inclined to make a purchase. Still (and maybe just because of this fact) we ended up buying more... More

If you are walking down the Bahnhofstrasse or planning to do so; if you like designer stores and jewellers than you are in the right place; however, if you would like to walk in picturesque side streets, you need to cross the river and walk around in the cobbled streets.

The quintessential Swiss shopping experience with side-to-side watch makers, jewellers and expensive boutiques. This Swiss shopping equivalent to Rodeo Dr. fills up during rush hour with large crowds awaiting the ubiquitous Swiss tram ways.

The Bahnhofstrasse is one of the most expensive streets in the world. You will find there the most know brands, but also H&M and C&A. Cars are forbidden there, but you need to be careful with the trams. The Bahnhofstrasse Christmas lights are amazingly beautiful.

All the expensive shops and trademarks are here. Since I am not a great shopper, this street did nothing for me. It lacks the charm and beauty of other posh streets in the world such as the Champselysee.

A little walk on partly cloudy partly sunny day is one of the best days of my Zurich trip. You can find good shops with famous brands on this street. There is not much variety but it would do the most you are looking for.
