Very close to the main shopping street Bahnhofstrasse, the Lindenhofplatz provides good views over the Limmat river and also towards Zurichsee (Lake Zurich). Well worth the short climb.

Would my way up the streets to get to this square that overlooks the city and canal. You get great views and the place seems very popular with all types. Could spend a bit of time simply people watching and taking in the views.

Lindenhofplatz in Zurich is one of those places where people just know how to get to. Located in old part of Zurich, one of the most attractive thing about it is that it gives you a bird’s eye view of Zurich Old Town, the City Hall, Grossmunster Church, etc. This hillside park is great for strolling around and people watching....

This was a very quick stop off on the way to other things but it was well worth the visit. You get views from over the river nearby over the east side of Zürich. There's also giant chess sets if you fancy a game while you're there.

It is a natural photo booth for tourists. There are benches and some pigeons flying around. It is on top of a hill and the view is stunning.

Best place to get a close up view of the old city. It will be crowded with tourists in summer, or any other day with decent weather, so take your time to enjoy the view and snap your pictures.

Beautiful place in the heart of Zurich, on top of a hill from which you can enjoy a unique view on the river, the Niederdorf and much more. In summer it is fantastic to be under the cool shades of the trees. You can reach from different directions walking through the beautiful old town.

It stopped raining as we entered Lindenhofplatz; vacant except for the pigeons. We couldn't sit, the benches were wet. As we stood, the sky cleared and we had sunny views of Zurich. Don’t miss this photo opportunity.

Christmasy Zurich at night offers a wide range of colorful lights. Seeing them from above makes quite a beautiful sight.
