I have the sweetest tooth ever so I loved all the chocolate shops and cafes lined up in Bahnhofstrasse. BUT they're closed during weekends.

Zurich's busiest road stretch, but it is a pleasure to the eye when you walk along the stretch. Lined with all famous brands and showrooms of the world, it is indeed a shopping destination. Hop on and off the trams if your feet get tired walking!

Having been there many times I missed to write a short review... This street is the most expensive in Switzerland and you can find a variety of international brands. Don't miss to visit The many sidestreets as well!
