A street with expensive stores but a must see! Many tramlines lead into Paradeplatz - and a great historical significance as hundreds of years ago this used to be a pig market - shocking!

The banking hub of Zurich - the home of banking! This square is surrounded by household-name international banks like Credit Suisse and UBS. The buildings are fabulous, with some exceptional exterior ornamentation. Take your camera.

It is part of the famous Bahnhof street, and its unique aspect is the nice Sprüngli Cafe which is worth a visit when in the area.
