The Zurich film festival was in full swing when we visited, so the square was buzzing and happy. By the lake, lots of transport options here and the opera house is lovely.

Bellevue Square in Zurich is easily accessible by public transportation. It is quite impressive and located in front of the Opera House. It is a great place for clicking pics. Certainly recommend visiting same.
