“Shopping Bliss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great Variety of luxury items and cheaper to purchase watches. The ease of access from the western district of Zurich, made it all the more a great shopping experience.
The Christmas market truly did fill the air with Christmas cheer. I'll be back for the summer sales.

“Unless you like Gucci, Prada and PooPoo...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This main drag used to have old-school stores. However, the increasing rents have driven the stores out of the street and replaced them with large chains. Furthermore, everyone and their cousin are walking around there.

Use the time and walk along the narrow streets on the left of Bahnhofstrasse (when facing away from the train station) instead. And have a drink at Widder Bar.

“NICE AREA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Its one of the main streets in Zurich, Excelent area to spend time, drink a coffee and have a meal and of course for shopping. The best brand are there such as Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Chanel, Prada, Hermés, etc.
The´re also, the train station that is a monument for Zurich City and connects Switzerland with almost all the countries in Europe.

“Prettier than Most Shopping Streets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Lots of shiny watches and jewelry. It makes less for a shopping experience and more for a viewing of beautiful objects.
