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 SwitzerlandWe undertook a 14 day trip covering Italy, Switzerland and France from 02 to 16 Oct 19. Right from discussion on iternary, suggesting suitable locations to visit as per our interest, booking of hotels and air tickets and vouchers for various visits, all was done in a very professional manner. The complete team was ever available in real time to resolve any issues that we had including during the trip My compliments to the entire team who made sure we had a great time. Look fwd to more such trips in future too.
Trip to EuropeHad a good time in Austria and Switzerland. Devaansh, Puja and team were very proactive in suggesting multiple options, helping us plan and guided us throughout the trip. I like customizing trips according to my preferences and the team was patient and helpful throughout both in the planning and execution, considering the places I wanted to cover. Would recommend.
Trip to SwitzerlandThe trip was well planned by Globus Holidays. They understood what we wanted, which is the most important part of planning a trip. It was a customized trip covering 3 countries and the planning was effective considering the tight schedule. Swati from Globus Holidays was really helpful before and during the trip. Always available on whatsapp or call, even after her office hours. It is a 4/5 star trip. 1 star lost because some aspects of the trip could have been corrected if the vouchers were booked a little early. Overall a good experience and will definitely recommend Globus Holidays to anyone.

Trip to EuropeI just came back from a family trip to Switzerland and I would like to utilise this platform to thank Holiday Aces and travel triangle. They planned my entire trip precisely. Special thanks to Meenu Goyal from Holiday Aces, Sonali from Travel Triangle, Operations Team of Holiday Aces, Mr Sumit, Mr Amit from Insurance Team, Mandeepji for Visa Process and others associated. I had a 3 Year old kid and my Parents are 60+. Keeping this in mind , Holiday Aces helped me customize my entire vacation to Switzerland. Meenu Goyal in particular was very attentive and assisted me whenever I called her to understand certain travel aspects. She was very courteous and owing to her and her team, I had a fabulous family vacation . Thanks to Holiday Aces and Travel Triangle Each and every location that we visited in Switzerland was special in itself. Zurich Zoo, Mount Titlis, Lake Cruise, Transport Museum in Lucerne, Stanshorn, Rose Garden in Bern, Chocolate factory all of them had something new to offer. It was an unique experience overall.
Trip to SwitzerlandWe went for our honeymoon trip to Greece arranged by Centaur vacations - Kusum, Anil and Rishab. It was an awesome trip. The services of this travel agency are excellent, although responses needs to be more improvised and proactive, but overall experience was great!! Thank you Rishab for all the suprises and complimentary services which made our honeymoon trip memorable. Rishab and Team were available 24*7 for all the doubts. Even today after the trip is completed Rishab is still helping for all the queries/documents required for claim settlement. Looking forward to have many more trips organised by Centaur Vacations. Thank-you so much kusum and Rishab for all the planning and making trip memorable.
Trip to EuropeWe had the most memorable trip to Italy and Switzerland for 10 days. The trip was very well customised by Duniya Safari and we could visit all the sight seeing places as planned. Based on our hotel preferences and places of visit, Ishita took care of all the hotel bookings, intercity travel, sight seeing passes, etc. Thanks to Arindam as well in helping us with the schedule everyday. In short, our tour was very well planned. Thanks to entire Duniya Safari team, especially Ishita and Arindam. :)
Trip to SwitzerlandOverall the entire experience was very good. On trip guidance and pre-trip coordination was great. Hotels could have been better in terms of room comfort and service. Will surely get in touch with Duniya Safari for future trips.
Trip to EuropeMy parents had gone alone for the first time, and I was a bit concerned, but everything was perfect! Hotels, the tour coordinator, food, everything. Thank you travel triangle! The group, Switzerland, food!
Trip to SwitzerlandThe agent kept his word. Despite the ‘issue’ caused due to Jet Airways cancellation last min ticketing on another airline was done by the agent at no additional cost. Also the extra baggage fees charged on one leg of the trip was refunded.
