Banhof Street is located on the west side of the Lima River in Zurich, 1.4 kilometers long. Street was built in the period of Roman rule in 15 BC. Romans built the city on the lakeside of Zurich. It began to develop into a thriving commercial center and became one of the busiest and most expensive streets in the city. It's the same name as the 5th Avenue in New York. Switzerland's top stores can be found along the street, with high-end choices ranging from top fashion designers to shoes, furs, jewelry, porcelain and jewelry, and, of course, Swiss watches.
