Once full of questionable characters and hookers, Niederdorf is not a nightlife hot-spot. Countless pubs and cafes from which to choose, each with their own character! Small shops, art galleries, cinemas... it's always worth a visit and always good for new experiences.

A very long street loaded with restaurants, shops, and beer gardens. We hate at 2 excellent restaurants here. Highly recommend La Pasta.

Went there twice in the last few months to meet with out of town friends. I was suprised at how lively the place was now. It certainly has gentrified over the years: now there is Desigual, Lulu Lemon, expensive watch stores, etc. Met my friends...More

We took a long walk through this neighbourhood with much of our time focussed on a long pedestrian laneway called Neidorfstrasse. Here, there are a plethora of both open air and indoor restaurants, cafes, bars and fast-food outlets. There are also a number of quirky,...More

This is probably the heart of Zurich and it starts at Central. It is a nice walk as it is filled with bars, cafe's, restaurants and shops of all sorts. I don't come this way very often but it has not changed much over the...More

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.
