This is Zurich's main street for shopping, as long as you're in the mood for buying top notch watches, diamonds or fancy clothes. All the luxury shops of the city are here. Let's say it's the most touristic part of the city, but it well worths a visit.

Most of the high end shops in Zurich are along this street which stretches SW from the main railway station. Can be a bit crowded. Easy tram service along the street. Also be aware that most stores are closed on Sundays.

What a surprise to exit the Bahnhof to a street with so many amazing shops from the ordinary to the very high end. It is fun to browse or shop your way to the lake at the opposite end.
