We loved walking around the square. There is a pretzel stand that sells so many varieties of Swiss style pretzels. Absolutely delicious. Nice cafés and a view of the lake.

Bellevue is an amazing place with beautiful view and wonderful atmosphere. During my visit city was hosting European Athletics Championships Zürich 2014 and 50 Km walk was going on the Bellevue and on the square there were a lot of activities in different stalls. Walk from Bellevue to Alstadt is an amazing experience with river on one side and souvenir... More

Just a square, which I think became even less special since all of it has been paved. A bit more interesting in December, when the Christmas market is there or in April, when Boegg gets burned, but otherwise not all that exciting. You can get a view of the Opera house from here and get to the lake, but otherwise... More

A real gem of a spot in the city. I often stop by Bellevue just about every chance I get, whether it's for lunch at Globus, ice cream at Movenpick, a cup of coffee at Starbucks, grabbing a quick bratwurst at Sternen Grill, or just strolling along the waterfront feeding the beautiful white swans that are always lingering around the...

Bustly tram interchange situated at the head of the lake in Zurich. Loads of trams, traffic and people. Close proximity to the lake where you can take a stroll, view the boats or people watch. Ice-creams and other refreshments available. Worth a visit.

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
