Pedestrian friendly Niederdorf has always been my favorite area of Zurich to stay in. There's a wide range of accommodations to fit most budgets. It has great access to public transportation, getting you to and from the main train station. There's a wide variety of restaurants serving everything from sushi to tapas to Swiss fondue. There's also plenty of places... More

This pedestrian way one street off the Limmat river has many restaurants and shops to visit. This region is in Old Town, but try to explore some of the small alleys off the main way.

We stayed on Niederdorf while in Zurich for the marathon. It's ideally situated for walking around the city and taking in the sights, restaurants and bars and for people watching over fondue or coffee!

This is probably the best place to stroll to see Zurich. Start at Central and being walking along the Niederdorf. There are loads of bars and restaurants on the main walk or in the side streets. All types of cuisine are available. You eventually arrive at Stadelhofen. As you get towards the end there are few less bars and restaurants... More

I went through Niederdorf while in Zurich on business. I had a full free day and took on the sites of Zurich trying to at least visit a few of the "happening" areas. So thrilled I literally "fell upon" this area when a free outside concert was being held by a local orchestra. There was music along with a number... More

Niederdorf is a nice place, if you have some time and don't want to stay inside a museum. Many small shops, some of them very oldtimer, some trendy. Most street are just for bikers and walkers
