“Shopper’s heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

This place is heaven for those who like to shop and collect different, unique articles. One actually loses control here and let’s looses their purse strings. We bought a few items as memento so as to have something to remember Zurich by other than our memories. This one is for all, including the avid shopper.

“Unique, high-end quality Swiss goods.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

This specialty store is located on the Limmat river at Rudolf-Brun Brucke. This store has top quality goods produced or hand-made in Switzerland. Items from clothing to childrens toys to cow bells and everything in-between can be found here. The items are all high end and/or made by hand so expect to pay top end prices for these quality goods.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful during my visit to the store. There are some very unique items sold here, so if you are looking for a nice gift to present to family or friends, I think they would be very impressed with the products on sale here.

It’s a small store, but certainly worth a visit just to see some great hand-crafted, quality products.

“It's just a store”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2013

It's not a museum or anything, just a store, and it's pretty expensive. You're better off just going to the one at the Zurich Airport--if you're in the city, do something more fun.

“Not what we expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Smaller than I thought, and it mostly sells works by Swiss artists. We were expecting things more along the line of crafts, rather than abstract art-y things. don't get me wrong--the things they had for sale were nice, just not what I was expecting.

“expensive but what else does one expect”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Beautiful items, but 550 CHF for a jacket. Wow. Well I would rather buy it here than from a designer shop at Paradeplatz.
