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.

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.
