Went on a free Zurich walking tour and was brought to Lindenhofplatz. It's a quiet little park offering a panoramic view of the old town and the river. Worth a walk up there for a good photo!

The views of Zurich are great from Lindenhof. The park itself isn't anything special. A definite must for a great view!

Love this place which up from the old town of Zurich. Where you can get a nice paranomic view from old town and the river. It's just a small walk from the old town, can't see why tourist like me should miss it. :-)

A stroll through the old town and up to the lovely platz where there are wonderful views out and across Zurich. The locals play petanque here as well.

It was hard to find the way up, but if you keep guessing when on the path, you'll find your way up to Lindenhofplatz if you head in this direction on the map. Great place to just sit and watch the river.

Great view of the river and Aldstadt. The big fountain there has very drinkable water so fill up your water bottle. Nice place to rest.

We found the place by accident while strolling through the city. It's peaceful, chilled with great view over the river. We had a great weather which is the way to do it.

Great views of the city and river. Fountains. Boules. Huge chess boards. Leafy trees and benches. Zurichers and tourists alike seem to enjoy it

We spent a whole day walking through Zurich and this was certainly a worthy stop for the views of the city and water below. You can enjoy sitting and watching friendly locals play games including chess which our children were fascinated by. Definitely worth a visit.

Last week I took some USA chums to my favourite park..Lindenhof...& provided a picnic lunch which I had imagined would be the perfect place to rest as well as enjoy the view...we did neither!
