It was fun. Make sure you look at the prices when window shopping :) Take your time and enjoy as well as people watch.

“Ultra Chic to Trashy”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

From the ultra chic and expensive to tourist trash shops. The Bahnhofstrasse is not be missed. Stroll down and see how the other half lives! Although I may sound overly negative, it is necessary to walk down at least once every year when I am in Switzerland.

“Avoid.”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Ridiculous people spending ridiculous money on ridiculous things. It's just a row of shops. There are many beautiful things in Zurich - go see one of them instead.

“Fun to do!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The Bahnhofstrasse is fun to walk and explore. Whether your interests lie in the upscale shops or simply people watching, you will not be disappointed. From Paradaplatz to the Hauptbahnhof, explore the many side streets of restaurants and shops. Young children may not like the strasse too much, but they will be appeased by a stop in Franz Karl Weber toy store and a slide down their big between floors slide.
