The same old part of the city. There are no roads and no cars. There are only narrow streets, small squares with fountains. It is nice to walk slowly and enjoy the city.

Beautiful, but especially during the Christmas holidays so crowded and some red light places. Better the other part of Zürich.

There is a Tram Stop called "Central" right there where the Niederdorf Strasse(=Street) starts. Also Zürich's Main Railway Station(Bahnhof) is only few minutes walk away.
