I found the Platzspitz Park to be a haven of restfulness recently. The sun was out...there was a mild breeze and the Limmat River sparkled in the distance. A perfect place for holiday reading.

Platzspitz is a lovely green treed park at the fork of the Linnet River just a short easy stroll from the centre. It's a good place to relax, reflect, picnic and just enjoy the river and the park.
