Zürich lies on the Bahnhofstrasse!
Zürich’s shopping mile, the Bahnhofstrasse, is renowned throughout the world. Once a muddy ditch full of croaking frogs, from 1864 it served as a thoroughfare for carriages, later the horse-drawn tram, and later still electrified trams, and finally cars. Nowadays, the Bahnhofstrasse – most of which is car-free once more – is home to on elegance and exclusivity, world-renowned brands and latest trends, watches and jewellery, quality and diversity. Hardly anyone comes to Zürich without visiting the Bahnhofstrasse. Just a 10-minute walk from the hotel.
Limmatquai and the Old Town
The Limmatquai is the street in Zürich’s Old Town – also known as the Niederdorf – that runs along the right-hand waterfront of the River Limmat. It passes by the Grossmünster Church, the Wasserkirche (Water Church) and the Rathaus (City Hall), as well as various guild houses. Many of these are home to public restaurants, combining a history-steeped ambience with typical Zürich culinary specialities.
Under the arcades near to the Rathaus, trendy shops have taken up residence and, together with the other retailers, invite visitors to enjoy a shopping spree along the car-free Limmatquai between Central and Bellevue. Just a 5-minute walk from the hotel.
Under the viaduct arches
Life has returned to the area under the arches of the railway viaduct, built in 1894, in Zürich West. A 500m-long urban meeting place invites you to stroll, shop, enjoy, eat and drink. A shopping paradise has arisen under 36 viaduct arches, offering a colourful mix of delicatessens, studio galleries, sport outlets and fashion labels.
