You can also find an old stone which i a victim for the old name of Zurich, given by the Romans.... More

Great views over the city on both sides of the river. A great place to sit under the trees, Well worth the short climb up there.

Its a small park overlooking the Limmat River. during our short time there we saw many other tourist groups . From Lindenhofplatz you can have an amazing view of Zurich with Limmat River . Really worth the time spent there.

Lindenhof gives you a beautiful view of Zurich slightly from above. It's a big square with trees and a fountain where you can relax and take a lot of nice photographs.

Lovely view over the city and lake. Beautiful when we were there with all the Christmas lights. An easy walk from the river.

This is a quiet square overlooking the city and the river of Zurich. It is historically significant. Terrific access to the old town and worth the effort to climb the steps for the views.

The views are stunning, unfortunately we had fog but we still saw a lot. There were people sitting eating lunch, playing giant chess or just hanging out. Really nice place.

Zurich is beautiful and to take it in from this vantage is an important certainty if on tour. From high up the city almost looks like a toy town due its idilic nature with trams going past and the colourful facades of the swiss architecture. I really do like Zurich, a very nice place to visit at winter

Very nice square in the middle of the local community. During the day many local people use it to get together, drinks some coffee or just sit around in the sun.
