This beautiful old part of Zürich is stacked with interesting boutiques, art cinemas, small international restaurants and cafés. If you care to look up you will see the lovely architecture. It is absolutely amazing in December when it is lit for Christmas. Who needs the Marais???!

Zurich's old town is a picturesque, village looking stretch of several blocks. It is filled with bakeries, shops, strip clubs (!), restaurants and various other places that you can spend your hard earned franc's on.

It is worth a long stroll and I suggest doing a little window shopping. The prices are a bit high to do some regular shopping. I also suggest stopping at Sprungli and getting some luxembourgli. Delectable.

They say that Zurich is one of the most expensive cities in Europe. I can believe it. But it's also one of the most pleasant to stroll around and window shop even if you aren't going to buy those $700 pair of red leather boots.
