Tons and tons of stuff to see here. On the street and underground. Take a walk here and you can stay all day looking at the shops and local sights.

Zurich and the Bahnhofstrasse are without doubt beautiful though expensive but you get the best chocolate, sushi or fashion brands within a 1 mile walk. An additional eye catcher is the Xmas lighting called Lucy which looks amazing and gives the street an awesome look and luxury glow.

Main attraction of Zurich, starting from the main train station and ending at the lake where you can get on a boat. Bahnhoftstrasse is the place of banks where you acn withdraw your money before spending it in he wolrd famoust jewelleries. If you have lot of money to spend this is the right place.
