Great mix of shops, pubs and restaurants along the cobblestone streets. An easy place to spend two or three hours just wandering around.

The Niederdof is a big street full of shops, restaurants but also with a lot of interesting buildings and every meter seems to be full of history. This is something that taes you back in time and takes you back to a different place.

A wonderful area to stroll on narrow streets and alleys. Find a small shop or restaurant to enjoy. Pretty popular, but still an area to visit when you are in Zurich.

Niederdorf has a few nice, off-beat shops, but like the rest of Switzerland, everything is totally overpriced. Buy with your eyes or sell your house and buy a dress with the money.

Pedestrian street with cheap restaurants and bars offering bad quality. The street hosts as well some striptease bars. In the evening and night a lot of noise of drunken tourists & locals.
