Switzerland Shopping Guide
Travelling to Switzerland is incomplete for the tourists without filling bags with the best of local items to surprise the loved ones back home. While on one hand the scene of shopping in Switzerland has numerous luxury boutiques and malls selling everything from wardrobes to watches to chocolates; the streets of Switzerland reverberate with the chirps of street hawkers selling the best things to buy in Switzerland.
Here is a collective list of some of the best shopping places in Switzerland, and a few of shopping tips.
1. Plainpalais Flea market, Geneva
Traditional flea markets and cheap shopping in Switzerland go hand in hand, and this twice a week market of Geneva is one of the most visited flea establishments of the country. Ever since 1970, this multicultural, dynamic street mart near the centre of Geneva town has been dealing with second hand furniture, quirky handicrafts, old clothes, books and toys, ethnic stuffs like candles, incense sticks, candles, curio items and antique jewelleries.
Tips: Upon exploring in depth, one might also find vintage cutleries, paintings and decors. With a little bit of bargaining skills, all these things can be bought at a steal at these flea markets, making them best for budget shopping in Switzerland.
2. Julia’s Dressing, Geneva
For the fashion-conscious women of this generation or the yesteryear’s, Julia’s Dressing is the best haunt for vintage classics when it comes to wardrobe. Be it the fashion statement of Audrey Hepburn from the 50’s or Sarah Jessica Parker from the 2000’s, the haute couture displayed in the low lighting ambience of this shop can compete with any high-end shop of Milan or Paris.
3. Freitag, Zurich
The iconic flagship store of Freitag (Friday) in Kreis 5 District of Zurich is basically a tall tower of piled freight containers, visited by all those who take interest in recycled shopping. Their bags and accessories made of recycled truck tarpaulins, inner tubes of bicycle tires and car seat belts have broken the path of fashion accessorising all over the world. The building in itself is an attraction, and inside one can get the greenest ever backpacks, laptop bags and purses right from where it all started.
4. Chocolate shopping
Swiss chocolates are world famous and there is no one single shop which can be named in Switzerland for chocolates. The delicious little treats are the best things to buy in Switzerland. Funky Chocolate Club in Interlaken, Chocolaterie Walder in Neuchatel, Favarger in Geneva, Villars Chocolate in Fribourg, Max Chocolatier in Zurich, Confiserie Bachmann in Lucerne – all of these places have the best Swiss chocolate in different flavours – dark, milk, white. DeLaFee is a brand that has them in bars and wrapped in gold leaves.
5. Im Viadukt, Zurich
Im Viadukt is a crossover between an industrial courtyard mart and a flea market. The odd location in the three-block length between Limmatstrasse and Geroldstrasse, the venue is the best place for outlet shopping in Switzerland. Once a storage facility under stone railway bridges, the area is now restored as an enclave for shopping antique and second-hand stuffs, along with restaurants and cafes at large.
Do explore these amazing places to buy some souvenirs while traversing the surroundings of this vibrant travel destination, and experience the best shopping in Switzerland.

Trip to EuropeWe had a great time in Europe, Memorable trip for us. Trip was organised properly according to itinery like hotels, taxi, tickets. Firstly we faced some problem for applying the visa but team support was good specially thanks to uday and prasant who helped us everytime whenever we needed. I must say Switzerland is very beautiful and the best place for honeymoon trip.
Trip to EuropeHotel of Paris was not as per the itinerary and there was no proper destination guidance in the itinerary and the trip was not planned properly due to this we have wasted one day in Switzerland and had to go back to same destination/city for sight seeing which we have already left one day before. Overall trip was good.

My trip to Europe was properly planned and all the help was provided when needed be it prior to the tour or during the tour..

Trip to EuropeI went to France, Switzerland and Italy. I got a very competitive pricing from Hubholiday. They provided very nice pre, post and on trip support. Thanks Yeeshu and Prashant for your efforts to make my trip memorable. They even provided support for information not part of package such as best option to buy sim. I really liked hop in hop off bus in France and Italy, it was a great way to visit major tourist places in less time in a cost effective manner. Swiss pass in Switzerland was also great I could travel anywhere in Switzerland via it. Tip for first time travelers - make sure you know all information in detail, less vegetarian options are there specially in Switzerland so you can buy fruits, chips, etc from there or bring from India, be well before time on famous monuments, make sure to take care of your stuff to avoid any issues on the trip.
