Bellevue Square itself is only average, but surroundings are very nice. A walk by the lake towards China Garden. Having a "Bratwurst" in Sternen Grill @Bellevue square is must, or just having a beer or coffee at Odeon's Cafe to observe the people walking by and expensive cars showing off.

If you are visiting Zürich this is a great place to relax a bit by the lake. Sit down and enjoy the scenery , feed the ducks or have an ice-cream. There are refreshment bars, drinking fountain and public toilet near by. Watch out as the tram lines are crossing here and they are coming from all sorts of directions.... More

Relax! Buy some take-away pasta in the restaurant nearby, grab a beer or an ice cream. Sit down on the wooden bench and put your feet into the lake. Zurich Stadelhofen train station is very close. You can get there also with at least 6 trams!

The Bellevue square at the southern border between Rathaus and Hochschulen quarters is a major junction of the Zürich tram system, served by lines 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11 and 15 besides buses 912 and 916. It is situated at the lakeside, just north of Sechseläutenplatz. It is named for the Grandhotel Bellevue built in 1856. Ideal location for... More

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
