Must see- old part of Zurich, full of character & lots of touristy bars etc. We got stung at a bar when we went in to see the Football- prices were ridiculous- not Swiss management.

Niederdorf is an awesome Zurich neighborhood for a stroll, there are quaint streets with cool shops, restaurants, and bars. It really comes alive and night as the locations fill up. A great place to chill and people watch while having a drink.

The lane ways here are so much fun to explore and just sit by the river and watched the goings on on the river and the fascinating people parade in the lane ways. The shops are beautifully restored and looked after.The whole place is so...More

Historic area of old Zurich, lively area during day for shopping, crowded in the evenings and weekends due to numerous bars, clubs and many restaurants.

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.
