This is sort of the hop-on hop-off bus company in Zurich. It is called The Zurich Trolley Experience. We figured that if we would like to know the city much better and in a short time, hopping on to a Gray Line bus would do that trick. Which it did! At some places, the trolley stopped for 15 minutes for everyone in the bus to take some nice pictures. It was snowing on that day and the scenery looked powder white. Truly a beauty to me. Within 1.5 hours, we were done and we hopped off the bus and wander around town with our own feet.

This street is renowned for being the most expensive street in Zurich, or more like in Switzerland. The street is situated very near to the train station and at the start, it has some hightstreet brands such as H&M and Zara. As you walk closer to the end of the street, nearer to Lake Zurich, it houses some international brands such as Hermes, Chanel, Dior and yea, I’m sure you get the idea by now.

Also along Bahnhofstrasse, you’ll spot a huge store called Beyer Clock & Watch Museum. We paid a small fee to enter this museum. There are over 300 valuable exhibits of historical time keeping. It goes way back to 1400 BC! They provided us a tablet where we can read about the history once we keyed in a number according to the display. If you have the extra moolah, get a watch as a souvenir since Switzerland is known for making great watches.
Take the Polybahn and go up to University of Zurich. It’s situated on the hilltop and it has a great look-out point to get a good view of Zurich from the top. You will see many students hanging around the campus but do get a good spot with your camera ready especially during dusk. You’ll be amazed by the view and don’t forget to capture the moment with your camera.
