It's one of the best toy stores I have ever been to! My daughter, who is seven, had a blast in this toy store. They have an extensive science experiment section which she loved! Although everything is in German, you'll figure it out. It's the most complete range of toys I have seen, with a lot of outdoor toys. They... More

If you're in Zurich on a family trip and you have a few kids(I'm still one at 47) stop by Franz Carl Weber toy store. They even have a slide to take down a level. Hahaha It's in the middle of the most expensive street with top name brand stores. Gives the little ones a break from Prada Rolex and... More

Our 7 year old daughter loved this store and we did as well. It is packed with three floors of lovely, lovely toys. From Bruder trucks to Calico Corners and books galore, it is by far one of the most beautiful and exciting toy stores our family has ever explored. Wish we had more space in our suitcases to carry...

I came with my daughter and our 7-year old was working her way from the top floor of Franz Carl Weber (FCW) down to the cellar level - a great experience where she was able to test various known as well as new toys. At the end we bought some toys and received great service.

I had a terrible experienced in the Zurich store in sprig 2015. I came from the US and went to to buy my baby a little auto toy for her first birthday. I took the first one I found nice and put my baby on it to see how it was. I was told I could not put my baby... More

Located on the famous Bahnhofstrasse, this amazing toy store will remind you of FAO Schwarz in New York, who they once owned. Found that out at the Toy Museum. Franz Carl Weber has a storied history as toy maker and retailer. The store is packed with wonderful toys for kids of every age. There must have been 5 or 6... More

Amazing toy store with lots of history. Has everything including public washrooms. Was able to pick up Christmas gifts for my grandkids that are exlusive to only a few areas in the world. Great stop.

A really wonderful old-world toy store with a slide for children going from the ground floor to the basement. Really a must-see for any child visiting Zurich. Along with Pastorini toy store, Zurich is a fabulous toy paradise.

We ran into this store while strolling on the shopping mile in Zurich. Kids were thrilled(so were we). This is a great store for out of towners to browse toys and crafty items that may not available elsewhere. Also, restroom available which is rare to find.
