This long avenue, is beautiful, with lots of shops, cafes, restaurants and old buildings, in the heart of old town, near the most beautiful and iconic points in Zürich, with great nightlife and gastronomy to discover. Full of colors, art, flowers... A must-see in Zürich

This is an integral and very atmospheric part of the old city and one that deserves a lovely stroll around. Beautiful but expensive shops, great buildings, lovely cafes and the odd Swiss restaurant. Recommended visit

There is a Tram Stop called "Central" right there where the Niederdorf Strasse(=Street) starts. Also Zürich's Main Railway Station(Bahnhof) is only few minutes walk away.
