Wanting to avoid the high prices of Zurich’s designer shops? Look no further than these flea markets and second-hand shops where it’s possible to pick up a bargain, find a unique treasure or the perfect hand-made souvenir.
The Gallery is a luxury, second-hand store that features racks full of internationally known brands for affordable prices. The store divides its goods up into six “worlds of experience”: jeans, casual trendy, affordable luxury, modern contemporary and accessories. If you’re in need of a mid-shopping pick-me-up, there is also an in-store juice bar serving fresh fruit juices.
The Gallery, Löwenstrasse 40, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland, +41 43 343 95 71
Housed in a former locksmith’s workshop in the heart of Zurich’s Old Town, Limited Stock is the place to go for unique artisanal, handmade crafts and artefacts from Switzerland and around the world. Their mission is to find rare items and share them with curious clients, so it’s guaranteed that you’ll find something odd, but definitely unique.

Kanzlei Flea Market
The Kanzlei Flea Market is one of Zurich’s biggest. It’s said that on a few occasions, vendors have camped out on the square to secure the best spot to sell their wares. It’s possible to buy almost anything at this market from antiques, to electronics that are on the verge of kicking the bucket. With over 400 vendors battling for attention it can be an incredibly hectic affair.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A GUIDE?
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.
WHAT DESTINATION IS ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET-LIST?
I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
