The main shops on this street sell either watches, jewelry or clothes. Prices tend to be quite on the high side but you can find the odd bargain here and there especially when there are the sales.

Bahnhofstrasse is Europe's most expensive shopping street in Europe. The "Rodeo Drive" of the Continent. We enjoyed our stroll, shopping, cafes, and restaurant along the way. Not normally a must see, visitors should know that Zurich is a small city with architecture as one of its main attractions. This street allows the visitor to make the most of city vistas.

With such high end shops, window shopping is all I could do! We were unlucky and it was an extremely cold day, so it was really too unpleasant to be out walking. This could be pleasant on a warmer day.

By all standards, this is a fine area to hang around. Many shops, and if you walk along the street, you will find a nice area with cafes and restaurants that are really inviting!

If you came to Zurich with money to spend - this is the place to go! Everything from international brands to Swiss favorites is here. If you're a Swatch fan, hit up their store for special items you can't get elsewhere.

It's all you might want from a central street in an European town - it has all the big ships like Prada, Gucci etc. There are plenty of other more affordable shops as well. On the small perpendicular streets you can find some hidden gems like churches and galeries.
