4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

A good place to get a taste of Zurich shops. Also has lots of restaurants. Just bring lots of money as Zurich is expensive

“used to be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Bahnhofstrasse has been known for its luxurious shops, banks and restaurants. At this time its pavement is under reconstruction, which complicates movement of pedestrians. Also quality of offered items has failed in many shops, as well as service.

“Lotsa expensive watch boutiques”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

A gathering of all major luxury European brands and Swiss watches with huge price tags. While I think I can find same stuff at other cities at lower prices, it's quite interesting to walk around. Do pick up some Luxemburgerli if u pass by a Sprubgli. Absolutely delicious!

“Hi Street Zurich...A shopper's & credit card companies paradise..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

High Profile shopping street in Zurich with all the brands one can think off... Reminds me of Dubai Malls and the headache my credit card bills going to give me (thanks to my wife)... Very expensive area to shop around but with good options and choices.. One can easily see lots of bankers (with Credit Sussie and UBS, based on the street) moving around...

Street starts from Zurich HB and ends to Lake Zurich to provide a nice place to stroll, even if not interested to shop.. And has quite a good options to eat and drink with friends and family.

Old City is just around the corner, we spend our whole day strolling around the Bahnoffstrasse, Lake Zurich and Altstad..Had a fun time..
