I was expecting some kind of museum showcasing iconic Swiss crafts with brief captures of their history etc. NO, IT'S NOT. It's purely a place where you can buy those "stereotypically iconic" souvenirs (watches, bells, mugs etc.). That being said, it's nicely decorated and has...More

Large variety of Swiss handicraft. Very friendly and helpful service, which is not always the case in Zurich.

Wide selection of typical Swiss handicrafts located right along the river in downtown Zurich. Practical and whimsical items are available. Closed on Sundays. There is also a location at the airport in case you forget anything.

This is the place I always visit to buy presents for the friends abroad. Local handicraft with our SWISS design.

Authentic articles offered there. You can go through it for no more than half an hour and buy presents. Some of the articles are quite expensive, but the quality is high.

A charming little store full of Swiss craft, a bit pricey but as Swiss as you can get. Very easy to get to being located near one of the main bridges crossing the river, easy walk.
