A great place to sit out and watch the world go by - get a drink from the cafe or any of the nearby outlets. The chairs come in pairs and are linked together - so take your pick and move around to where you want to be. The new water feature looks good as well.

Lovely square by the lake with great seating areas and view. Situated near of Opera and trams have few cafes. Shops and restaurants of all varieties around to experience as well. Specially recommended for summer season, when you could enjoy open air events, drinks or picnic with a great view of the lake, the city and mountains in the distance.... More

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
