This is the point from where you can take trams towards Zurich HB, or the Zoo, or FIFA, or Universitat Zurich, or any iconic attraction. The view of the lake is magical too.

It's basically where you can get (almost) everything within a 300 meters range.From supermarkets to most tram connection, from the Bank to occasional circus tents, from clubs to restaurants. Easy to get to from the Zurich main station (Zurich HB --> Central and then take tram nr. 15 heading to Klusplatz). Sometime too many "wannabes" but apparently it's "cool" to... More

Bellevue has a very belle view of the lake. It is a beautiful place to go on a hot summer evening. Yes, Zurich can be very hot.

Bellevue square is great in the summer, with cafes and restaurants of all varieties. There is a view of the lake and the mountains in the distance.

Bellevue square is a lovely place to sit by the lake and watch the boats go by and feed the swans, ducks and other water fowl... From the left over brötli you had with your bratwurst. It's therapeutic and the children love being close with the birds! A great place for a picnic too for those with a low cost... More

This square is close to the Niederdorf, the lake (Zurich) with some really nice walks and it has also a lot of restaurants and shops close by. I end up there from time to time. When you live in a city you can go to a place whenever you want. If you are a tourists you cannot. Many trams meet... More

Lovers of people watching will enjoy this square which enjoys views of the opera house and open air events in the summer. The opera house is beautifully constructed and a really delight for lovers of great architecture. Throughly recommend walking around and grabbing a pretzel or three to sit and enjoy this square.
