This public spot has one of the best views of the old town Zurich. It really worths the visit. Although, it lacks a happier atmosphere. It would be a very nice spot for a biergarten, for instance. Nevertheless, this spot offers great views.

In the middle of Zurich's lovely Old Town, Lindenhof is a popular viewpoint over the river and the picturesque Niederdorf area. It is also the scene of open-air draught and pitanque games. It is,however, also the location of some grossly-understated historic interest. Occupied by the...More

Personally it wasn't my best view in Zurich (I found Lake Zurich more encapsulating), but it is still a decent view of the city. Central part of Zurich (10min walk from Zurich Hbf) and easy to walk up. We got here at 830am so the...More

A tree-covered hill rises on the west bank of the Limmat. This is the Lindenhof, whose position made it an ideal location. Local people told me that in the 10th century, an imperial palace stood here. Although no buildings survive, an observation platform offers a...More

An area around the wider part of lake zurich, quiet and peaceful. Good for a stroll or a takeaway meal by the lake.

Lindenhof Park has a fantastic view of Zurich’s old town and the river. Best time to visit is at night. Nice walk up a steep hill but is definitely worth a visit. A nice quiet and relaxing park in the heart of Zurich.

A slightly uphill walk leads visitors to one of the best places in Zurich. Lindenhof is a historic neighborhood with an excellent view of the Limmat. The park at the hilltop is lovely.
