Not all that glitters is gold: sometimes it’s crystal. The Swarovski Crystal Gallery is located directly opposite the train station, and a cherished yearly tradition gives the Austrian brand even more reason to be proud of its presence in Zürich: the Swarovski Christmas tree takes pride of place in the central train station throughout December.
