Zurich - Car sightseeing

Hi all,

Which area in Zurich would be best for car sightseeing?
Was in the Bahnhofstrasse last two days and saw more Porsches than I could count. Saw a bunch of Teslas, couple of Bentleys, Ferraris and a Maserati.

Any other area in which I could see a bunch of nice cars?

Seefeldstrasse at night

Re: Zurich - Car sightseeing

for classic cars, a place like Bellevue on a sunny Sunday morning.

Re: Zurich - Car sightseeing

Saw a Fisker parked up in Seefeldstrasse (ZH) the other evening. A rare and ugly beast...

Along the lake between Bellevue and the Opera House there are benches to sit on.

Re: Zurich - Car sightseeing

Where Bürkliplatz and Talstrasse cross, there are pedestrian area's on the crossing, and there's traffic lights so a lot of them stop, and you have the best spot to view all the cars coming from General-Guisan Quai, Talstrasse and Quaibrucke. (Even a public toilet right next to it, on the north-side)

Best done on a nice summer day, and you'll find yourself accompanied by dozens of other car enthousiast often armed with camera's. And due to this a nice bunch of the cars make some extra noise.

End of September on a cloudy day with rain every now and then, you might as well just walk around in centre and enjoy what comes by.

I can also recommend to you the area between Horgen and Rüschlikon. I saw there a lot of nice oldtimer cars. Best place could be at one Restaurant or park by the Seestrasse at the lake.

If you want to see Rolls Royces, Bugattis (incl. Chiron), McLarens, couple Ferraris go to Glattpark (Opfikon) just on the boarder of Zurich. There's Schmohl car garage with all the beauties.
