“Nice view of city and place to play chess”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

There is a great view from here of the Old Town and the Limmat city area. There are lots of large chess sets available to play or to watch a game in process. A nice place during the day to relax and enjoy the ambiance.

“Quiet and Romantic Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We love to come here at night. Nice view over the old city with it's lights and especially in the winter time when it snowed it is romantic. If you want to escape from the busy city life than this is a great place to relax. Close by are hotels and restaurants.

“Picturesque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We came in summer, so we found this a great place to cool off after a long morning in the sun. I imagine it'd look fantastic during Autumn, when the leaves turn red. Nothing much else to do except walk and perhaps take a few pictures. A pleasant experience.

“Viewpoint”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

One of the most visited places as there's a view to the Limat river and the city of Zurich. Nothing spectacular there but nice autumn colours in October.

“Ideal place for a short break from bustling Zurich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

The place itself is simply beautiful especially in autumn when tries are changing colours from anything between green, yellow and red. Great view on the river and the city. Do not miss it when you happen to be in Zurich. It's also a good place for a romantic date.
