A short walk uphill but worth it as the views from it are amazing. You can see, on a good day, the mountains in the distance plus always a birds eye view of the riverside. The best viewpoint in Zurich but not pointed out on a lot of maps. No food stalls or similar when I was there. Toilets a... More

This seems to be the heart of the old city of Zurich and next to the Limmat River. It's a great place to simple walk around and see the old churches, river and more.

We finally found this place. Not signposted at all and even asking people got us no-where. But we persevered and found it. Once to the top it is a flat area with great views. It is meant to be an old Roman Fortress. I am glad we found it.

It is located on the old part of the town which offers a great bird eye view of the river. It is located behind the Church of the lady. It is about 15 minutes uphill walk. It then opens to a square. The terrace offers a spectacular view of the river with no cost. On the other side, we watched... More

Definitely check out Lindenhofplatz. It is a pretty and peaceful square with trees and a fountain with great views of the Limmat River below. Also go to the other side to watch the elder statesmen play chess on a giant chessboard.

If you're like me, you like to see things from the top and enjoy the overview. Lindenhof is part of the old town, originally the site of the royal palace before the Zurich people became independent of a king. From up there you can see the river Limmat, all the way to the lake, mountains in the distance, the other... More

The Lindenhof in the old town of Zürich is the historical site of the Roman castle, and the later Carolingian Kaiserpfalz. It is situated on the Lindenhof hill, on the left side of the Limmat River at the Schipfe.

A quiet tree lined park over looking the Linmat and the city. Great place to bring a lunch and enjoy the tranquillity.

Gives you a great view onto Limmatquai and lets you watch the wheels go buy. John Lennon would approve. Or you could play a game of chess.
