We arrived to Zurich with a train from Milan. This station is a typical european capitals station. Very easy to roam around and quiet safe. When we were here it was December so there were Christmas markets inside the station. It was so fun and there were a lot to see!

This definitely reminded me a little bit of San Francisco in the United States. This part of the city has the trains go up and down on it on a cable car system. The area is also connected to a ton of shopping, restaurants and cafes. There is a good mix of tourists and locals which gives this street a... More

If you are from America understanding the transit system is very difficult, be sure to always find a local who can help point you in the right direction.

Wonderful to walk on this pedestrian street & window shop - not just the shops themselves which are almost all high end designer shops but the shoppers many of whom are dressed as though going to a wedding or similar but they're actually dressed for serious shopping. This street is reputed to be the richest street in Europe if not... More

This street seems to go on forever ! There are loads of shops. Designer and otherwise. There are many jewellers and near the lake at the end of the street is a market. Here you can mix with the locals - cross the street and you are looking out over the water.

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.

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
