The Paradeplatz is at the intersection of a few tram lines, and pedestrian streets. There are all sorts of shops, cafes, sights and banking centers within an easy stroll.

It is a stop for many trams in Zurich. Around Paradeplatz you find many shops including sprungli coffee, banks and luxury brands shops... just a walking distance from limmat river and lake Zurich. Just drop off and have a walk. Enjoy the beautiful city
