    Pass By: Bahnhofstrasse, Runs North-South West of Limmat River, Zurich 8001 Switzerland

    You can find everything that your heart desires in Bahnhofstrasse: fashion, art and Zurich specialties attract local residents as well as visitors.

    Fraumünster – a Church in the Old Town With Windows by Chagall and Giacometti

    Stop At: Niederdorf, Right bank of Limmat river, Zurich 8001 Switzerland

    Niederdorf is part of Zurich's old town – and the locals fondly refer to it as "Dörfli", meaning the entire Niederdorf and Oberdorf area that extends as far as Bellevue. Niederdorf is a pedestrian zone the same as Limmatquai, which runs parallel. During the day, the pedestrian zone and many stores, which are almost hidden in alleyways, entice you to shop. In the evening, Niederdorf changes into a nightlife district for a very varied public with its bars and street artists.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Pass By: Grossmunsterplatz, Zurich 8001 Switzerland

    The Grossmünster church is a landmark of Zurich. Legend has it that the church was built on the graves of the city's patron saints, Felix and Regula.

    On a Saturday afternoon, our guide, Filomena, lost three people right at the start. We crossed the street from the train station in a crush of people and merged another group with the guide wearing the same blue jacket and white backpack. My husband and I followed the other

    Grüezi mh95037 Thank you very much for your feedback. We are always glad to get feedbacks from our guests to improve our service. We appologize for this experience and we will brief our Tour Guides in future better. We have checked the option with audioguides but so far the advantages without headphones have outweighed for our guests. Nevertheless we will examine all feedbacks to improve our tours in future. We hope you had a great stay in Zurich and we look forward to welcome you again. Kind regards, Johanna

    This was a nice walking tour and well organized. We got to go into small alleys, city overlook hills, try out a ‘surprise’ local drink, and educate about Zurich’s history. Overall, just a pleasant tour. Recommended.

    The sites we saw were excellent. However, it was extremely hard to hear Gabriella. And when we would get to the next stop she started talking before the whole group caught up. No time to take pictures except at the park.
