Great because of Art Gallery Gmurszynska, which surprises, concentrated wealth by the assembled banks , The classical building Hotel Savoy Baur en Ville, the Café Sprüngli reviewed separately. This attraction cannot be avoided if you want to visit Fraumünster

It's a typical European square. They had nice decorations up but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it.

A street with expensive stores but a must see! Many tramlines lead into Paradeplatz - and a great historical significance as hundreds of years ago this used to be a pig market - shocking!

The banking hub of Zurich - the home of banking! This square is surrounded by household-name international banks like Credit Suisse and UBS. The buildings are fabulous, with some exceptional exterior ornamentation. Take your camera.

This is a nice square in the middle of Zurich, there is a lot of transportation, and from here you can easily go to the main street with all the expensive shops and also a short walk to the river or the lake.

Walk around this historic square Now with banks on three sides Thankfully the south eastern corner houses the great institution of swiss chocolate called Sprungli. Go to the shop. But go upstairs to the great coffee und Kuchen hall. Enjoy.
