Bellevue square is more of a central point for catching trams and starting a lake walk, the Bratwurst stand on the corner is excellent and it was lovely to eat this Swiss street food by the lake as an economical lunch in the sun

Zurich has many places to go - lots of green and the Lake Zurich. But if you are living here or visiting you will come across Bellevue some time. It is one out of five big intersections of traffic and tramways and busses. A rondell (round) building offers a bar in the center of the tramway station. If you take... More

The square itself is nothing to write home about but at the water's edge there are great views over Lake Zurich and you can watch people feeding the swans. I must admit to sitting here for a while after spending time walking around the old town.

It seems that many from Zurich come down to this nice square by the Opera house to come to meet and enjoy their friends on a nice summer afternoon. Great for watching people! It's close to Lake Zurich and near the trolly lines.

If you are in Zürich do not miss a sunset at the lakeside, but do jump in to the Movenpick Icecream shop, that is a must if you have a sweet tooth. To me the best ice-cream ever, I always come-by, even on winter days.

We took on Zurich for a 14 1/2 hour layover last week and decided to split our group so that everyone could do their own thing. We decided to meet at Bellevue Square as it is conveniently located in the heart of the city close proximity to the lake, the Limmat River and other downtown restaurants and attractions. The place...

Since Bellevue has been renovated it's become a great meeting place in good weather. There are cafes along the sides, a fountain where children can play in good weather, ample space to ride bicycle and scooter, a car park just below and the Zurich Opera house. If you feel like a treat, head over to Mövenpick for the best ice... More

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
