A view over Zurich City

From the Lindenhofplatz you have a beautiful view over the City. Lovely during the day and night. It's a pitty that it don't have much possibilities to sit.

It one of the most interesting sites that combines leisure, views and history. Its a very nice spot not far from the Bahnhofstrasse overseeing a large portion of historic Zurich. The ETH and university of Zurich where most famous Scientists roamed. Looking to the right is also the Odeon a café Restaurant where also the brilliant Albert Einstein once discussed... More

Definetely a must if you are visiting Zurich. On the way, there are nice small boutiques, but dont lose too much time there and enjoy the view from Lindenhof asap. Also dont forget to grab something to drink on the way if you want to enjoy your drink with one of the best Zurich views.

Right after we arrived in the city - this is the first place we went. When doing research on what to do, this was one of the suggestions. It has great views, and gives you a layout of the city. There were quite a few people up here taking pictures and enjoying the day.

Lindenhofplatz is an ancient wall above Old Town in Zurich. It has a really nice view of the Limmat. You can easily reach it by foot from Old Town or anywhere in the city center. When we were there they had some tents set up to celebrate Sechlauten but it was still not too busy to enjoy.

My wife and I visited lindenhofplatz... we were tired after all day walking but this was an easy climb.. about 4 floors (that's what my iPhone tracked). I suggest buying a beer and pizza from La Piazza and sit on the ledge and enjoy the beautiful view...

Such a beautiful view once you climb the steps to this site. I would love to sit on the wall and have a picnic if we'd been there during warmer, non rainy, weather.

If you can handle a short walk (uphill) it's worth visiting Lindenhof for the view you get of Zurich Old Town from across the water. Definite photo spot!

We stumbled upon this park by mistake when wandering around Zurich between flights. In fact, it is where the original Roman settlement or fort stood in Roman times. You wouldn't know that as nothing is signed It has gorgeous vantage points over the city, places to sit, chess games, and bocci. A great place to walk through or stop with... More

A wonderful little viewing area and garden in the middle of the cobbled streets of Zurich city. Gorgeous views over the rooftops and river.
