Bit of a climb up. But well worth it for the view of the city. Go there early morning or late afternoon when the light is best for some great photography. We walked up the cobbled pathway and came down the steps into the Altstadt (Old Town). Great way to see all the little shops that are tucked away on... More

You have to climb a few steps to get here, but the views are worth it. It's a great way to get oriented to all of the sights and you can get some great pictures at a different vantage point then on the ground.

Nice view of the city. We were there over Christmas, so we could see all of the lights. We got some great photos around sunset.

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.
