Great train station. Easy to get help if needed and to purchase tickets. Well marked directions and tracks. Very clean. Bonus was the great market inside.

Most brands are high end brands. You can get discounts from nearby malls for the same items but not here. But there are many choices compared to what is available in the malls. We were there during the Black Friday but it wasn't Black here.

What a Beautiful place to be in with friends and family. The Big train station is worth the visit. Thronged by tourists from all around the world. A place can't be ignored visiting. If you have the money shop till you drop.

This is a must go street when you are at Zurich. Located in the centre or the city, just outside Zurich HB main train station. Full of shops, eateries... you must go in to the shop especially shops selling local swiss chocolates. You could probably spend the whole day here... bear in mind that shops in Zurich close as early... More

Great place to window shop and has all the stores you could ever want and all the top brands. Our visit was during a Sunday during the Winter markets so it was packed.

It's a beautiful street, with wide sidewalks so pedestrians have plenty of room. On either side of the street are the high end stores you typically only hear about ... here, they are cheek by jowl with each other. No Banana Republic or The Gap here. You're looking at Chanel and Dior and Mont Blanc and super-high-end jewellery stores. So... More

Infront Zürich main station starts this expensive shopping street with all top brands. It's a busy street with lots of local pedestrians and musicians playing in different places. Stop to shop-eat-relax with plenty of options

It is a long walk around the shopping district. Was surprised that it wasn't busy like London (home) or NYC - there is an array of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants but like all other cities many places are closing but then new ones opening at the same time. Love all the trams they're great and are very popular. Good... More

There's plenty of nice boutiques and cafes. You can stroll around the area by foot, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Beautiful and interesting scenery of Zurich's old town.

Though not necessarily to shop unless your budget is more flexible than mine. But it is alway interesting to window shop and dream about what you'd buy if you could--or not. A pleasant stroll down to Lake Zurich and the boat tours.
