Niederdorf and Oberdorf

Niederdorf and Oberdorf is the neighborhood located on the right bank of the Limmat River.  The atmosphere here is more casual than the rest of central Zurich.  Instead of banks and upscale shopping there are cafes, art galleries, and boutiques.  Many of the city's best restaurants are located here too.

Limmatquai and most of the side streets are closed to automobiles, so walking around Niederdorf is a breeze.  Some of Zurich's top attractions are here, including the Kunsthaus museum and the Grossmunster church.  At night it turns into Zurich's most happening place, filled with revelers.  There are bars, night clubs, and street entertainers.  It's a great place to unwind after dark.
