Laid back park which you can reach after some walk and hike. For older adults to know, there is close to 100 step climb to get here. The place is meant for relaxing, playing chess, enjoying city views and reminiscing about your time in Zurich.

The Lindenhofplatz is a shaded park in the oldest portion of town. It is elevated above everything, and you get the classical vistas of Zurich. Worth the climb up.
