Bahnhofstrasse, a tiny and yet so imposing street of Zurich is all centred with luxurious fashion brands, Swizz-chocolate shops, warm cafes, art galleries and much more.

So, if you are a shopping buff and like to indulge in some of the world-class brands such as Apple, Chanel, Cartier, Gucci, Hekket, H&M, Burberry, Dior and Manor etc, then it's the right place for you to be!

The street is fairly 1.4 km long which can be covered in only 20 minutes on foot but the urge to go in and around all those irresistible stores will not just let you walk by! Besides, great fashion and everything in vogue, this sought-after street of Zurich is also admired for its aesthetic built.

Inspired from the 19th-century style and architecture, the street hardly composes any modern cast of buildings thus, keeping the true Victorian flavour alive to lure people from far and wide. Anything being said stands less for this pretty town street, but one thing that’s for sure; everything here is a visual treat.

Come here once or come here twice, the unforgettable taste and vibes will influence you for life.

The Mount Titlis Day Tour with Cable Car was a delightful experience for me. I was traveling with my spouse. The views were gorgeous and something that I can never forget about, it was dramatically gorgeous. If you are visiting Switzerland then Mount Titlis cable car ride is a great way to spend some time in the arms of nature and enjoy a great time. I was also able to capture some really good photos of the cute little snow penguins.

The fully rotating cable car experience topped with interacting with the snow penguins makes for a really fun time to enjoy. I recommend everyone should once visit the Mount Titlis and do the Cable Car ride. And I must say that the view from the cable car was amazing.

The dinner was on point, the activities were really fun and I along with my kids had a lot of fun exploring the night night sledding experience. If you are in interlaken you have to take one night out and enjoy this thrilling adventure with your family or your friends. The drinks served were also delicious.

The best fun I had at night in Switzerland was with sulwald Sledding experience at Interlaken. The activities are really organized and the guide gives thorough instruction about the details of the night. I must say that these instructions can get really boring but the guide found a way to make it really fun. I and my partner I was able to get into the action really fast with Sledging which followed dinner. All in all, I must thank Thrillophilia for making our night adventurous.

Chamonix Mont Blanc Day Tour was an amazing experience. We could visit a number of tourist attractions and sight the mesmerizing views of the white mountains. A delightful and fun filled tour indeed. Thanks to the team Thrillophilia and our guide for making it happen.
The overall service was satisfactory and very cost effective at the same time.

The place is perfect for half a day trip. It takes around 5 hours to completely enjoy every part of the museum and it is the place worth visiting. Everything about the museum is great, I mean the first thought in my head when I heard the museum was boring but the Swiss Museum Of Transport is completely opposite. There are a ton of fun activities to do and cars to admire.
