“Buzzing Central Point at the Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Central Point close to the lake. New parking garage at Opera brings you close to shops. On top of this garage is a big square which is nice in the summer. In this area you find opera, restaurants, clubs, Kunsthaus, cinema, hotels and shopping facilities.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

The whole area of Bellevue is wonderful- great scenery across the lake- a lovely place for a stroll along the lake shores. Bellevue also comes alive at night- packed with people either around the restaurants and cafes or running in the pedestrian boulevard - be careful of the cyclists though !!

“Bellevue Square has pretty much all of the essentials”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Located at the intersection of Zurich lake and the Limmat. This is a great place to be in nice weather. This intersection is a main transfer point for the local trams and buses. This area has a great combination of facilities for one to take part in during the typical day. Beyond the obvious, beautiful waterfront hangout, when, in nice weather there is often musicians playing for tips, a local train ticketing office, grocery store, movie theatre, fast food, kiosk, bistro, restaurants, shopping, Opera House and other various businesses. During sunny weather and at lunch time, good luck finding a spot to sit as most benches, steps and other resting spots are taken by the business crowd and students flocking to the area to enjoy their take away foods and soak up the sun. There are also free WC’s a bit further down the waterfront by the swim bad.

Definitely, a must do during the warm season!

“Beginning of lake promenade and great for people watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

The lake zurich promenade starts here. It is a very charming place, specially in summer. Lots of people frequent this place in a sunny day, which also makes it great to buy some food and see the people go by.
