If you like to sense the belle époque or the beginning of the XX century, The Meir might give you an impression of what it was. Beautiful buildings will remind you of the grandeur of this city. Unfortunately the shopping experience has become mainstream, you'll...More

It always makes me sad to see historic buildings being defaced by brandname logos (sports brands, Spanish and Swedish clothes shops etc.) They apparently have the money to pay the high rents. The good point is, it's a pedestrian precinct.

Nice shopping street, from Central Station to the historic center of the city (Cathedral) etc. It be even better once the reconstruction has been finished as it could get a bit massy when raining..... At MEIR street you can basically find anything of any kind.
