This is the old town of Zurich. Pay attention to plaques along the way. This is has some pretty cool history. Drink from the hundreds of gorgeous public fountains ! You'll find some very nice restaurants and coffee shops here.

Walking from the Zurich central station is easy, plenty of out- and in-door restaurants and pubs, traffic free area and always busy in the evenings, weekends and sunny weather. Suitable for small and big budgets and all type of entertainment

Great area for restaurants of all types and prices. Easy to get to by tram or by walking from the train station. Ate in this area three nights in Zurich.

This long avenue, is beautiful, with lots of shops, cafes, restaurants and old buildings, in the heart of old town, near the most beautiful and iconic points in Zürich, with great nightlife and gastronomy to discover. Full of colors, art, flowers... A must-see in Zürich

This is an integral and very atmospheric part of the old city and one that deserves a lovely stroll around. Beautiful but expensive shops, great buildings, lovely cafes and the odd Swiss restaurant. Recommended visit

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.

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.
