Looking at the great selection of goods most of the shopping is "window-shopping". One the the worlds most impressive shopping streets.

Not too large and easy to walk around From station to the lake, not more than 15 minutes. If you get tired there is the Tram system.

You will find a similar street in most big cities. There are stores, restaurants, sidewalk cafes, etc. I can think of nothing that made this street special other than the store prices seemed at least 50% higher than elsewhere.

Very accessible from the main station with trams running down the length. Good selection of shops from the designer label to the more modest and the street is well located on the edge of the Old Town

Bahnohostrasse is a street for upscale shopping, you can get every brand of watch there. You can sit and relax at benches or have some food at various restaurants or shop. Explore time for me was just 1 hour as I did not do any shopping. Zeughauskellar is a touristy place and has some good food (PORK AND BEEF specially)

This place is excellent for you if you are full of many and you can go on shopping spree in the shops. Everybody who has a certain name in fashion has a shop here.
