Sightseeing
City Center. Hub for all boat rides along the lake. Take tram 11 all the way from Oerlikon or from main train station HB if you don't want to walk down Bahnhofstrasse. Nice sitting area under trees overlooking the lake as well. Fresh food Market at Bürkliplatz every Tuesday and Friday (until 11:00). Flea market every Saturday (until 16:00). Worth your while! And if you are lucky weather wise, you can see all the way to the snow peaked Alps. Sensational view!

Doesn't everybody remember this street from the old Monopoly game? Watches, jewelry and designer labels are sold in expensive stores on Bahnhofstrasse leading from the main central train station HB to the lake of Zürich. Worth a stroll. You can step onto a tram 3 x along the way if you are too tired to walk.
