Peaceful square with a bird’s eye view of Zurich

Bahnhofstrasse, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland

Lindenhofplatz in Zurich is one of those places where people just know how to get to, even those that don’t can blunder their way through to it. It does not come with fanfare and you can’t even really see a street sign to show you the way, but it is every bit worth the effort to find the location. Located up the Lindenhof hill, this great destination is a 15 minute trek to get there. It is a favourite with tourists and locals alike and the best and most attractive thing about it is that it gives you a bird’s eye view of Zurich Old Town, the City Hall and several churches. Lindenhofplatz is also located in the old part of Zurich and has its own rich history that goes all the way back to the Roman days. It was originally where the royal palace was located prior to Zurich becoming democratic and not a monarchy. Lindenhofplatz opens to a squarethat has a lovely fountain and trees. From the terrace you can see a gorgeous view the Limmat River and the mountains that stretch into the distance. It is a must see for its beauty and views plus it is free
