Where to buy chess sets in Zurich?

Hi all,

I am looking for a store in Zurich that sells chess sets, and in particular wooden or magnetic travel-size chess sets. If I google it, I get all kinds of online sale websites, but I was hoping that some of you know of a physical shop selling such items where I could go take a look around.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Re: Where to buy chess sets in Zurich?

Toys R Us is probably a good place to try.


There are 2 in Zurich:


Tivoli Einkaufszentrum, Spreitenbach - 056 401 32 22

Industriestr. 29, Dietlikon - 044 835 2235

Re: Where to buy chess sets in Zurich?

I'm looking to buy a fancy or ornamental chess set - anybody know any good stores anywhere in the civilised parts of Switzerland (ie not GR or TI ) to visit and browse? Or any online sites for such things?

Re: Where to buy chess sets in Zurich?

I second "Rien ne va plus" on Oberdorfstrasse 34. Also Mr. Pinocchio further up (more of a toy shop) at Oberdorfstr. 3.

I saw a nice chess/boardgame shop in Mulhouse the other week. Can't find the address though.

Also in Basel: http://www.spielbrett.ch/kontakt.html

I bought my magnetic travel set on Ebay. It was about £2 and £2 postage!
