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.

If you're like me, you like to see things from the top and enjoy the overview. Lindenhof is part of the old town, originally the site of the royal palace before the Zurich people became independent of a king. From up there you can see the river Limmat, all the way to the lake, mountains in the distance, the other... More

The Lindenhof in the old town of Zürich is the historical site of the Roman castle, and the later Carolingian Kaiserpfalz. It is situated on the Lindenhof hill, on the left side of the Limmat River at the Schipfe.

A quiet tree lined park over looking the Linmat and the city. Great place to bring a lunch and enjoy the tranquillity.

Gives you a great view onto Limmatquai and lets you watch the wheels go buy. John Lennon would approve. Or you could play a game of chess.

It's a great view of Zurich, without having to pay an entrance fee (like you do to go on top of the Gross Munster), and there is also a play ground fro the children and a big chess board on the side, if you like to take time out of your day for that. There's also a nice, historical fountain... More

Best Place to make Panorama Pictures of Zurich Oldtown. Even though I live in Zurich I regularly go there just to see how Zurich can change according to the light.
