Cheap hotels near Niederdorf in Zurich, Switzerland

A district in Zurich’s city center, the Niederdorf, meaning “lower village,” offers some of the best nightlife and people-watching in town.

Situated near Zurich’s Aldstadt, the Niederdorf district runs (roughly) the length of Niederdorferstrasse between the arty thoroughfare of Muhlegasse and Aldstadt proper. The locale is marked by picturesque side streets (even the back alleys look beautiful), fun shopping and colorful buildings.

If you mention Niederdorf, it’s imperative to mention the nightclubs too. This area is known for a happening party atmosphere and caters to a youthful crowd that just starts to get revved up as the sun goes down.
