The 1.2-kilometer link between Central Station and Bürkliplatz is a popular promenade for locals and visitors. In summer, the linden trees provide welcome shade and along with the mounted flags, it gives a colorful look to the upper part of the boulevard. The Bahnhofstrasse is an attractive and well-sought after area for reputable international retail chains. Regardless of significantly increased... More

All luxury brands are present, and at least for luxury products, prices in Switzerland are competitive. Most boutiques also have Russian and/or Chinese staff to best cater for their main audience

it's the main shopping street in Zurich for wealthy tourists. it has many of the famous international brands and swiss brands too. and it's paradise for watch shopping. but if you like to but more swiss made things you can also look in the old town of Zurich

This is a fairly short stretch (1/2 mile maybe) of shops. It ranges from H&M to Hermes , but not many shops in total. So the shopping experience is limited

Main shopping area in Zurich ....walked all around and was looking at endless high end brands .....interesting, but after a while you get price overload and thankfully there are many nice bars to stop in and get a drink / relax. Be careful of the trams ....& cars zooming by. You will see many exotic cars driving by - it... More

Founds most European/western luxury brands as well as top Swiss brands here. A lot of shopping malls are located here too. While its very accessible from the main train station, it is also easy to get around to other areas of Zurich from Bahnhofstrasse as well by tram. F&B prices are a tad more pricier here too even without walking... More

This is the main shopping street in Zurich. Read one place it was the "most elegant shopping street in Europe." hmmm, not so sure but it was busy and fun to walk and window shop. It seemed all the major fashion houses and retailers had shops here.

Bahnhofstrasse has lost it, the same shops as every else in the world. Customer service tends to be very much "like why are you bothering me am busy talking to my colleague" Bahnhofstrasse used to be different.
