Pass 11 hours at Zurich?

Hi guys,

Any recommendations for killing time?

Me and the wife returning from our honeymoon.

Preferably looking for somenice mall or something alike, reachable using the train from the airport.

Siwtzerland's largest shopping centre, Glatt, is just 22 mins away from the airport and accessible by the direct No.12 tram from the airport to Glatt Wallisellen. At the airport, the tram stop is directly opposite the main entrance, and the Glatt stop is on a raised platform above the mall and road. You just walk along the platform and enter the mall at the top floor level.

Personally, if it's World class shopping you want, I'd get the train into the city centre and explore Bahnhoffstrasse. It runs from the train station to the lakeside at Burkliplatz, and the shops get more and more 'exclusive' (expensive) the closer you get to the lake. Part way down is Manor department store, where you can get some decent bargains, and it has a great cafe on the top floor wirh a roof terrace. When you get to the lake, you can take a boat trip and have a glass of wine whilst you enjot the scenery. .

or consider an airport hotel...you're still on your honeymoon. that might be a more pleasant way to "kill time".

The wife wants shopping :-)

But after reading your comments and other advices we'd had to the lake area and the shopping street mentioned in comment 1..

Thank you!

Good choice Adiel.

I hate shopping, but Bahnhofstrasse fascinates me, because it's a glimpse into a different World. Plus when your wife realises how expensive some of the shops are, she can always go and treat herself in one of the hundreds of more reasonably priced shops underneath the train station.
