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.

From the parkland you get a great view of the city. You overlook the old part of town and get a different perspective of the city

It was a cold and damp day so when finally reaching this look out point it was muddy. It was not a sunny day but grey unfortunately but you could still see out across the town

A must place to bring anyone visiting given the great views of offers of the old town of Zurich. Make sure you walk down to the 3 main big churches and visit those too.

I would not have known about this gem if not for TripAdvisor. Well worth the walk! If we hadn't had a tight schedule, we would have spent a lot more time here.

One of Zurich's most stunning sceneries. Perfect for lunchbreaks or pre-drinks. One can overlook the universities, the Limmat river and the beautiful old town area of Zurich. There's also a chess game open for the public. Best time to visit is when the sun sets.

Lindenhofplatz is centrally located. It is higher up than its surroundings but it still a small hill at best. The good news is that it is very easy climb. I wish I had found somebody to play chess with me, it is always a joy to play outside with big pieces like those found in this park. Nice views.

Super easy to find and very central, a short walk will get you to this spot where you will find lovely views over the old town of Zurich. Doesn't take long but it's a must for at least a couple of photos!
