“Nice to walk around.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

It's very cozy to walk around but don't expect too much as it is rather small. It's nice to combine it with other trips.

“Its Great place to walk around..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I really enjoyed it.. I take photos jordanmking.com and had a blast walking through these old streets at night snapping shots.. Its just a cool old town reminded me of Amsterdam by the looks not as cool but really worth it if your in Zurich..

Very interesting streets and architecture going through old town. Good eateries from Kabob to fondu! Also a very big red light district. Many places to shop.

“It's nice trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I have to say this is a must go in Zurich. The architecture in the area were fab. The pubs in the area were great. However, they are quite pricey though
