Bahnhofstrasse is the top experience in terms of luxury, whereas the old part of town has the best handicraft shops. Chocolates, watches and jewellery are typically Swiss products, and there is a wide offer in Zurich.

Zurich is a city famous for its financial activity, but it is almost as easy to make money here, as it is to spend it. At the sophisticated shops of Bahnhofstrasse, you find the most luxurious items: clothes, watches and jewellery, with prices equally...luxurious. Beyer Chronometrie (www.beyer-ch.com) is the oldest watchmaker in Switzerland and will probably be the best option for those wanting an exclusive model, manufactured with the noblest materials. Do not leave Bahnhofstrasse without visiting Sprüngli (www.confiserie-spruengli.ch), a house founded in 1836 and whose famous chocolates are well-known all around the world. Close to this street, there is a subterranean commercial area, commonly known as "Shopville", open every day, from 8am to 8pm. Large department stores like the Jelmouli (www.jelmoli.ch) or the Globus are equally a good option for the ones who have little time for shopping. Augustinergasse houses the best bookshops and antique shops, while the pedestrian area of Niederdorf hosts boutiques and music shops. Among the most popular souvenirs in Zurich are fondue parts and cuckoo clocks. In the Shipfe area, you can find many artisans who sell this type of objects. However, there are venues like the Schweizer Heimatwerk (www.heimatwerk.ch) where traditional crafts received a more contemporary and more adequate design for the ones who prefer decoration objects with a more modern touch.
