If you like high-end, designer and brandname shopping then RUN, don't walk to Bahnhofstrasse! But it's not for me.

But it's a great street to take your time on. It has a boulevard feel, with trees and the inevitable trams, and - surprisingly - plenty of seats. It's... More

This street keeps calling you. There is life in this place and all shops are attractive whether you are a serious buyer or a window shopper. The watches in the shops in this area are awesome and don't miss the watch museum.

When you purchase the real things, costly things, Marken materials, sure you must visit this Street. It is very easy to Access, because when you come by Train or Tram or Bus, you will easily reach and there is no complication. I am sure you will enjoy the Trip and find lot of things to take away from this Street.
