Bellevue is on the corner of Lake Zurich, the annual Sechselautern (parade of trade and urban associations) ends there. But Bellevue is nicest in the summer when cafes and restaurants have outside terraces and you can sit outside having a coffee or beer in the sun..

A barren location with nothing to offer. On one side the lake, but cut of by a very heavily trafficked road. The other side has trams and cars. the square itself waiting for some purpose. People gather at the lake, never at this square in front of the opera. Would probably be better to turn it into a carpark or... More

the place has ended up being a seemingly endless construction site .... after a years long renovation it has become a huge open space in front of the opera house ... still has not found its energy it used to have some time ago ..

This is on the east side of Quilbrucke, the bridge over the river by the lake. When we were there it was a mess because they were dismantling a great festival. It has good public transport and has good views over the lake. It is also just by the opera house and is on the recommended walking route round the... More

Bellevue Square is a very nice place to visit very close to Buerkli Platz and to Bahnhofstrasse. The Opera house is also there, very nice building worths the time to take some great photos of it. This square is very busy since cars, trams and lots of people are passing by it daily. You will definitely find nice cafes there,... More

In the heart of the city, they couldn't think of anything nicer than a big square of concrete-like stones? It's a let-down
