Great because of Art Gallery Gmurszynska, which surprises, concentrated wealth by the assembled banks , The classical building Hotel Savoy Baur en Ville, the Café Sprüngli reviewed separately. This attraction cannot be avoided if you want to visit Fraumünster

It's a typical European square. They had nice decorations up but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it.

The banking hub of Zurich - the home of banking! This square is surrounded by household-name international banks like Credit Suisse and UBS. The buildings are fabulous, with some exceptional exterior ornamentation. Take your camera.

This is a nice square in the middle of Zurich, there is a lot of transportation, and from here you can easily go to the main street with all the expensive shops and also a short walk to the river or the lake.
