Shopping in Zurich

In Zurich, you can find within the smallest of areas international names, luxury brands, Swiss products and an ever increasing number of young labels that focus on sustainable production.

Each quarter of the city offers its own unique shopping experience: from the finest chocolate, watches and jewelry on the famous Bahnhofstrasse, to trendy and traditional stores in the Old Town, through to local, urban labels in Zurich-West.
