The Bellvue is the ideal place to start sight seeing in Zurich. Not only that you have a great view over the Lake of Zurich and the Swiss Alps, but you can easy reach further great places like Bahnhofstrasse, Bürkliplatz, Niederdorf or Limmatquai. When you are in Zurich, this is definitely a must .... also a lot of restaurants and... More

Located where the lake and the river join, this area is busy mostly with locals catching trams. But there are restaurants around and the open grounds are used for special markets and events. Pass through but don't expect much to grab you here.

We stayed at hotel Seehof and the bellevue square is walking distance a few meters away from this place, must sit by the lake and have a drink, visit the movenpick icecream store and also the food places at globus, the square you can just hang around at.

Another location like Paradeplatz where trams meet. It is a much larger area than Paradeplatz. I used to like it until they renoved it. I feel it lost it's charm. There are tons and tons of reataurants around the area, some good, most average and most expensive for what they serve. I am talking about price quality. It is worth... More

You'll face the Opera House on one side, a movie theater and Globus - a small department store containing a great restaurant. You'll get your small version of Spruengli there and so much more. It's my favorite area of Zurich and it's right by the lake.

One of my favourite places in the city. The Bellevue Tram station is one of the most crowded ones, you can reach it by Trams No. 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 15 . It is great point to start exploring around the lake with lots of restaurants, cafes, bars & shops.

enjoy the Bellevue in Zürich, try a "Bratwurst" at the "Vorderer Sternen", that is what people from Zürich do, after visiting the opera. Then walk accross the "Quai-Brücke", enjoy the view on the lake and walk op the "Bahnhofstrasse" or walk from Bellevue along the lake to the "Zürichhorn".

Take a tram from anywhere in Zurich to Bellevue! This is the place to start your walk along the lake. Bring some bread to feed the swans, or just watch the people. Afterwards, stop for lunch or mid afternoon coffee on the other side of Bellevue along the river.
