Big place for various events. When I was there the circus Knie was there, therefore the place was busi and you couldn't see any thing.

We did not think there was anything remarkable about this square, but that may well be due to the construction. We generally enjoy the squares throughout Europe, as each one is different. We will no doubt give this one another shot the next time we are in Zurich.

It was nice place but under some construction when we were there, so it was difficult to see the square! and rarely from other part of city it was not so clean.

Very huge Square, with Opera Haus facing it. Only drawback: it totally lacks of any shade, essential in summer!

The Bellevue is sided North by a tram stop and the Bellevue building, East by a variety of shops and cafés (Coop, Mövenpick and Starbucks, to name a few) and by the tree-shaded access to the Stadelhofen train station, South by the opera and West by lake Zürich. It offers a beautiful view of the lake's Western shore and the... More

Despite its name not really the nicest of all squares in Zurich, the Bellevue is mainly a busy traffic crossroad for trams and cars. Additionally there is some mayor construction work under way at the moment. Still, Bellvue is a good starting point for the nearby lake, the opera, the Niederdorf, the bridge over Limmat with its postcard view of... More

Really nice place to chill after a long day seeing the city. You can see a lot of people getting together there and just enjoying the atmosphere.

This I think would be lovely especially in the evening with all the outdoor restaurants and lake side but the Circus was there and construction so could not appreciate the atmosphere.

Once it was little more than a tram junction with a few stalls with junk food. Now it is opened up, with art, fountains and a great view of the Opera and, of course, the Lake

One of my favourite places in Zürich. Perfect for a walk, to swim in the lake, for a bbq with friends or sleepover during summer ( it is a very common thing among the swiss).
