Don’t forget to turn around

The view from Lindenhof is one of my favorites in the city I call hone. A walk through the city with guests always includes this stop with a view of the Limmat River, Grossmünster, City Hall, ETH - the university where Albert Einstein studied. The old Roman ruins are actually under the current day park, but for my favorite part - you have to turn your back to the view and have a look at the water fountain.

The Hedwig Fountain honors the women who defended their city back in 1292. Fearing attack from Duke Albert I as the men were out fighting, it is legend fully armed women and girls of Zurich were led up to Lindenhof led by Hedwig ab Burghalden. This ‘trick’ led their enemy into believing the city was well protected and spared them from attack.

A great view of the old town for photos and a picnic
Apr 2020 • Solo
Save this place for a time when the weather gives some visibility. Hike up the hill and take photos of the river and get your bearings before conquering the Old Town on the other side of river. On a nice day, buy some cured meats and wine on Rennwegg and enjoy the elevated perspective near one of the fountains.

Cute area with walking streets
Dec 2019
Pretty view of the bridges and river in Zurich. It was right around the corner from our hotel Kindli. There are many cobblestone streets nearby and old churches etc. Quintessential Switzerland. Great walking area!!!

Chess games and view of city
Sep 2019
Wonderful overlook of the Limmat. In nice weather there are huge chess sets to play. Some small playgrounds nearby. Have a picnic break here and refill water bottles from the fountain.

Beautiful view of Zurich from the city centre
Dec 2019 • Friends
This little hill is smack bank in the city centre. A little walk up a slope, you'll be able to nearly see around Zurich.
Take a break from the shops below and visit this little hill.
Won't be disappointed.

Along the river
Dec 2019
The view from the garden is beautiful. Saw it in the day, but night view with lit buildings might be more magical. Accessible from Zurich hb station.
From zurich hb station, stay on the right of river limmat and climb up wherever u see stairs.
The public toilet nearby is quite unconventional and interesting looking too
