Very expensive and people shop here? We were hungy, craving for American food after a week of eating local dishes. It was time to eat some burgers at Burger King so we went there. The combo meals with fries and drink cost 3-4 times more. Most expensive BK whopper combo I've ever had.

Zurich is one of Europe's most expensive cities. Big contrast to Vienna which to me is much cheaper. The entire shopping Mile is so full of all the big brands in the world and come with a huge price tag.

This is a shopping street like any other shopping streets in the world. It's a good walk during a cold autumn night with some street vendors. But overall, nothing special.

There are many big brands in the town but the price of the shops are similiar to that of many countries. I will suggest not to visit the place unless you are in Zurich for shopping!

The area is nice. Very centrally located. You can find a lot of things here which are worth shopping. However, as expected, shopping is expensive. But you do get some good stuff here

This is the main shopping and main street of Zurich. Don't miss the Chocolate shop at the start of this street. The street starts at Zurich main station and goes all the way up to Lake Zurich. Fantastic place to take a walk. And make sure you go there on a weekday or Saturday as most of the shops are... More

When booking make sure you pay in the currency of the country you are travelling to or from! Take lightweight luggage, flat shoes as there are loads of steps! OK if you are young, fit etc.

It has all the high end stores and it is great to have a look and wander past, but not somewhere we were going to shop - a little expensive!
