The main shopping street in Zurich. It is charming but pricey. Many famous boutiques like Hermes and jewelry and watch stores. Good for people watching too.

we (husband, me and 5 year old) spent a lot of time here whilst in Zurich. Not only for shopping but for christmas lights; christmas markets near by, the carousel and christmas boxes - it's a great street

The light decoration along the Bahnhofstrasse was very beautiful during night time, as if there were clouds of star all along the street. Perfect place to have a walk after dinner/Cheese Foundu.

The Bahnhofstrasse is about a mile long and offers all the designer labels you could ever want. All at Swiss prices, of course. You can spend a full day just window shopping and/or spending your inheritance. But don't worry, H&M and Zara are there, too. Jelmoli, Manor and Globus are department stores. We especially liked the food department in the... More

Probably the best shopping street in the world. All the best brand name shops. You should have a lot of money in your wallet if you want to enjoy shopping in this street. If you want to buy watch you are in the right place!

Beautiful, clean streets filled with designed brand shops, watches, watches and watches, cafes and banks! Compared to Paris, Hong Kong and New York, the streets here are organised and clean and felt very classy. There are also a number of very beautiful cafes.

Really fun window-shopping and people watching. I've never seen a more dense area of high-end shops. I wonder what the median price per item is on this street. Well worth a visit, even if you don't buy anything.
