Small, artisanal shops in Zürich's old town: A 4th generation chocolate and pastry shop, with recipes unchanged since 1905. A cream of the crop chocolate boutique - 100% Swiss, natural, handmade products, some of the best quality in the country. But hidden away in the cobblestone streets. A new chocolate shop, with a patented technology for chocolate-making, combining Mayan traditions and Swiss innovation. A cupcake shop, Swiss style. And more.
Wear comfortable shoes for walking around the old town.
