Lindenhofplatz is a square located on top of a hill that overlooks Zurich. The square itself isn't too special, however, the view of Zurich is fantastic. Well worth it to come here!

This is a great spot to get a good view of the city centre. Two minutes walk from Banhofstrasse, you will enjoy a nice view of the river.

A short uphill walk for great views. Sunday afternoon, the park is filled with locals yet quiet and enjoyable. Have a seat on one of the benches and enjoy the Limmat River, views of Lake Zurich and the city.

Lindenhofplatz is a fantastic vantage point for beautiful views of Zurich city - the river below, the mountains beyond AND the Zurich Lake on the right! It's a short walk up a hill and has shady trees, fountains and benches to sit, chat, relax, read and enjoy a wonderful afternoon! Extra amazing on bright sunny days ofcourse!

This higher spot overlooks Zurich and is a great place to pause and take in Zurich. Took many good photos from this place and is easily accessible if you do not mind a bit of a slope and a few steps.

This is the place to go if you want to take some stunning pictures of the old city. It is an uphill walk to get there but it is well worth it.

Linderhofplatz is a great park! It has three big chess boards set up for people to play chess or checkers with each other. We played two games with a local student who happened to walk by, and before you knew it, about ten men gathered around to watch, analyze, and cheer each move. This is a great idea to interact...
