  • I was expecting some kind of museum showcasing iconic Swiss crafts with brief captures of their history etc. NO, IT'S NOT. It's purely a place where you can buy those "stereotypically iconic" souvenir...  more »
  • I have many handmade gifts. Prices slightly above average but still worth a visit. In the heart of the city.

  • We visited this store at 3/12/2016. It is a relatively small but beautiful store, where you can find traditional and not only Swiss handicrafts. Wood, porcelain, from fabrics, metal decorative but utilitarian items are exposed. He had started the Christmas decoration and expose carefully, with beautiful color combinations, mainly in red and white (colors of the Swiss flag), and some really ornate! They are mainly tourist shop with very polished objects ... and of course the traditional cow as a trademark!!! Troodos Mountains variety Swiss soygiadwn (Pocket knives), mugs, plates and porcelain or ceramic sets, utensils for fondue, childrens wooden toys and especially traditional (in Zurich there is a Museum of toys that according to the guide is explored from the best of its kind-visit next time), jigsaw knitwear and scarf sets, scrubs, sets of tablecloths and placemats embroidered with entelbaϊs, wall clocks with cuckoo ,... generally great variety gifts!!! Elegant Christmas gifts .... but expensive! With a little patience you could find the kinds of individual at flea markets for a month up to the central train station, in the squares, at intersections of roads with large sidewalks and create a festive atmosphere and. .. the main prices much lower than the Swiss craft center! Of course, this alternative Christmas market! We recommend visiting the above shop and everyone according to the pockets of ... does!

Where to stay in Zurich

As the financial hub of the country, it shouldn't come as a surprise that staying in Zurich usually comes at a price. The city puts emphasis on its glamorous four- and five-star hotels and international chains that appeal to traveling professionals. There a handful of hostels and guesthouses for the budget-conscious traveler. When staying in Zurich, you'll find that the majority of the accommodation offerings are in close proximity to the city core, either on the left or right bank. The left bank is the glitzier of the two, with its grand restaurants, shops, and proximity to the banks and train station. The right side, as home to the Old Town, charms with its historical atmosphere. Here you'll find independently owned boutique hotels and some mid-range options. The city also sports several hotels geared toward wellness, with spas and saunas. These tend to be pricey too, but you're guaranteed a truly relaxing retreat.
