“Better than ever!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

The tram bed upgrades are over and Zuerich is ready for the Summer. Stroll along, shop or window shop ,have a refreshment or a lunch---from budget in the Annahof or FF to the WIDDER garden off at Rennweg . Find a luxery item to make yourself or a friend happy or find nice stuff at Manor,Jelmoli or Globus or at one of the world brands stores. For young people look at ALPRAUSCH on a side street across Globus. Good sandwiches in the MANTA BAR. MAKE SURE YOU GO ALL THE WAY TO THE LAKE. There may be a market at Buerki Platz

“High street ambience with interesting shops”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Fewer things could match strolling along the Bahnhofstrasse in Zürich on a sunny day in March. A number of interesting shops where the staff we met were consistently very polite and friendly, even if we early on declared that we are not inclined to make a purchase. Still (and maybe just because of this fact) we ended up buying more stuff than planned :)

We avoided the prestige watch boutiques but found numerous other boutiques to visit (anyone interested in watches would not have to look any further than to Bahnhofstrasse though).

There is a multi-story toy store at Bahnhofstrasse that is a must for any family ending up at Bahnhofstrasse.

“You should really be on the other side of the river!!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

If you are walking down the Bahnhofstrasse or planning to do so; if you like designer stores and jewellers than you are in the right place; however, if you would like to walk in picturesque side streets, you need to cross the river and walk around in the cobbled streets.

“No bargain hunters”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

The quintessential Swiss shopping experience with side-to-side watch makers, jewellers and expensive boutiques. This Swiss shopping equivalent to Rodeo Dr. fills up during rush hour with large crowds awaiting the ubiquitous Swiss tram ways.
