Fantastic shops and a lovely street to walk along and people watch. It has all the most expensive shops here with some very interesting characters frequenting these establishments. Just sit on one of the many seats and watch the world go by.

This is a mixed, so as to include some up-scale shopping as well as a variety of restaurants and some hotels. Just off the street one can find more of the same, however the streets are often short, not well marked, and the longer ones curve. The maps are far from great. But the locals are helpful.

This street reminds one of the fashion area of Milan---every top designer and expensive retailer of clothes,shoes, watches and jewelry has a storefront or two on this street. I lucked out as we were here on a Sunday when everything was closed so we window shopped and my wallet stayed in my back pocket!!!I love it when a good plan... More

The whole place is immaculately clean and the shops are amazing, window shopping was about our limit although we did manage to find sales in Superdry and Claires and got some bargains cheaper than we could in England. You would need serious spending money to enjoy it properly but it's great to just idly wander and look around.

If your vallet is to heavy, that's the place to spend a lot of money. A shopping street with some cafes for a break. But you have to be aware that the Bahnhofstrasse is one of the most expensive streets on the world. Still nice for a walk which of course is free;)

The Bahnhofstrasse is the most exclusive shopping mile of Zürich. You will find all the brand and a lot of fine watch selers on the Bahnhofstrasse. The will also find the well known shopping stores as Manor, Jelmoli and Globus as well restaurants starting from MCDonalds till Confiserie Sprüngli.

A melange of top end shops are packed along this tree-lined avenue. Elegant shoppers vie with good-looking bankers to sit at the outdoor cafes and watch the world go by. Great for window-shopping:-).

Been to the lovely Bahnhofstrasse or the Station Street during visit to Zurich. It stretches from the main Hauptbahnhog station to the Zurich lake. This is an exclusive upmarket street with shopping arcades and shops selling premium goods and accessories. No wonder its known as the most expensive shopping area in Zurich. The trams criss crossing the place alongside the... More
