One of the fascinating parts of this wonderful city. Every time we walked through this part of Zurich we came across something else new & exciting. The area is buzzing and plenty opportunities to take some stunning photographs in this area. A must visit area when in town.

It is essentially a small park on a hillock. Lindenhofplatz is just a few minutes walk from the old town. We enjoyed the view of the Limmat river, Grossmunster and other clock towers and churches from the top. It is a nice place to just relax, take pictures, etc. We saw people having a picnic, playing chess or simply chilling... More

Green hill where once a Roman castle stood...but now a pleasant park that provides one of the best vantage points in the city....and what a view..!!!...can definitely rival the view of Florence from Piazzale Michaelangelo (if you know what I'm talking about)...brilliant place to just spend time relaxing...quite a romantic spot too...

It is a really nice place to just chill out provided the weather is right, spring, summer or early autumn. It is a little deserted in winter. There are lots of shops and restaurants, bars etc. around here and you are not far from some lovely nice walks through the city. Worth just sitting there and watching the world go... More

The climb up is pretty steep but from up there you have the view of the river and the old town which is pretty nice. However, for me I felt that the viewpoint was not high enough for a breath-taking view. Recommend those who have time to make the trip up to Uetliberg instead.

If you wish to take a break after a shopping tour or walking through the 'Altstadt', do not miss to go up the lovely stairs and watch the beautiful city from above, refresh your feet or mouth with fresh water from the fountain and even watch people play chess.

A superb position overlooking the river and the east part of the city and an incredible vantage point to enjoy the crane that was imported from Hamburg. It is very generously described as a work of art !

The view of Zurich from this park is great. The park itself has a fountain where you can refill your water bottle, and even a lower fountain for your dog... though dogs aren't allowed. LOL. Anyway, head up the hill and take in the view or eat lunch while taking in the old city.
