Though snowing for a while and with chilling wind- the view from Lindenhoff is spectacular. After crossing the Limmat in front of the Rathaus- just keep climbing and you will get up there.

I specially like telling them the story of the lady wearing armors in the fountain. Many years ago, the austrians knowing that the Zürich guys were busy fighting somewhere else decided to capture the city by surprise.

Great views, and very calming to see the city from overhead. Great way to still be in the city, but feel as though you are surrounded by nature with a city view.

it's the first place I take visitors when we start our "tour of Zurich". Shade from the trees, fountain, view of the Limmat, benches. Ideal place to start taking pictures.

The remains reveal a bath house and part of the foundations of the Fort that lie beneath the entire Lindenhof hill where it was built. it was hard to see the remains... More

The Lindenhof park is a perfect place to get a fabulous view of the Limmat (river) and Zurich. It offers a great place to sit and enjoy a take-away meal or just catch one's breath after shopping and sightseeing. It is particularly beautiful and fragrant in June when the linden trees are in blossom. A very peaceful place in the... More

Lindenhof gives you a fine view of Zurich in all its beauty, with the river cutting through it. It's definitely a walk that you must take if you want to see the city in all its glory, especially at night!
