Skip and go 500 meters back from the river to the old town. Much more of feel like you are visiting Europe, not just another modern city.

I only write average because this is a typical shopping area. Nice - great for shopping all kinds of clothing, gifts, accessories. It's all very nice. If you want to shop brand names and stores - definitely go here. It's just not my major interest when I am spending precious days abroad - I am more into quaint, historical, beautiful,... More

We had heard and read about this famous avenue. It did not disappoint as far as appearances or prices. Nice looking Rolex watch--about $ 30,000 just sitting in the window. Jemoli and Globus department stores fun to poke around in. Lots of different shops including the Weber Toy store which was great to look in. Definitely an experience to behold.... More

Bahnhofstrasse links the main station with the lake. A slow walk will take 15 to 20 minutes, plus there are plenty of trams. The more exclusive shops are closer to the lake. Closer to the Bahnhof one finds several department stores, Globus, Jelmoli, Manor, Orell Fuessli bookstore, also an English bookstore, then lots of usual mall shops like Zara and... More

A place for window shopping but Zurich is tremendously expensive and the boutique designer shops are prohibitively expensive.

My wife and walked the length of Bahnhofstrasse on our first jet lagged day in Zurich. It has many high end shops and restaurants. If you don't feel like walking, there trollies that can take you up and down the street.

The Zuricn Main Train Station, we got off to Bahnhofstrasse and saw various shops and restaurants. The street is a constant coming and going of trams and people, no traffic. Benches were available in case you get tired of walking or shopping. The famous American coffee shop and computer store were here but ladies would love one store here that... More
