The Bahnhofplatz is actually Switzerland’s most important railway center. It is full of people and trains going to various destinations, and is worth a walk-through just to see it. When we were there, a trade show was taking place in the building, so things were especially busy. There are several good stores in the main station through which to browse, and it is a good starting point for a shopping spree. If you are a serious shopper, however, or are looking for something in particular, a walk on the Bahnhofstrasse is a must! There are many wonderful shops selling books and antiques, jewelry and clocks. The windows have beautiful displays, thus each store front has a lot of character.
