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

Great view, drinking fountain and it has a public bathroom on one side which is free. Go at night too - Zurich is beautiful lit up.

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.

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.
