A stop at the Griederbar is the best insider tip for resting tired limbs while shopping on Zürich’s Bahnhofstrasse. Set on a leafy terrace overlooking the coming and goings on Paradeplatz, it is an oasis of calm – the perfect place for a pick-me-up salad, sandwich or coffee. Best of all, it’s set on the first floor of Grieder, one of Switzerland’s best fashion department stores, which promises more than 3,000 square metres of shopping heaven and a hair salon behind its neo-Gothic facade. A new Bongénie Grieder café has also just opened in Geneva.
