This is possibly the largest open space in central Zurich, surrounded by the lake, the Opera House and a good number of shops, cafes and restaurants. Lively, pleasant and ideal for a rest while visiting the city centre (there are chairs scattered around).

This is a huge square located close to Lake Zürich. The Opera House is at one end and Bellevue Square is at the other. Not too much to see here, although it does look quite pretty in good weather.

It takes its name from the Sechseläuten, the city's traditional spring holiday, which is celebrated on the square in early April. It's an historical square but what strucked me was that during the lunch break people brings their chair and talks with friends and colleagues or...More
