The Lindenhof, in the old town of Zürich, Switzerland, is the historical site of the Roman castle, and the later Carolingian Kaiserpfalz. It is situated on Lindenhof hill, on the left side of the Limmat at the Schipfe.
In 1747, a second-century Roman tombstone was discovered at the site, bearing the oldest attestation of Turīcum, the Roman-era name of Zürich, as STA[tio] TURIC[ensis], at the time a tax-collection point. The castle remained intact during the early phase of Alemannic immigration in between the fifth and sixth centuries, but was derelict by the ninth century, when it was rebuilt as a residence for Louis the German. It later became dilapidated and used as a source of building stone by the 13th century.

A historic place where cars are not allowed is one of the major tourist attraction. One can approach this through narrow winding, climbing lanes. The top offers a scenic view of the river and the city of Zurich. This place is usually not crowded and offers a good opportunity for those who wants to explore the place.

I absolutely loved this place. You need to walk here from Zurich city . I would say it could be pretty tiring but worth every step. The place is beautiful because you get a very beautiful view of the city and the river from here.It has a huge chess board and its fun to watch the kids play. For a very relaxing evening/sunset, this place is a must visit in Zurich.

Very nice place where you can see most of the Zurich. This is a must go when you are in Zurich for sightseeing. It is very easy to get here. The views are amazing. Very nice place to stop, enjoy the views and take a lot of pictures. People here stop here and relax, play garden chess or just go here for a walk.

Fabulous views of the city by day or night, and space to sit, walk, play chess or boules; what's not to like? Wish I could see it in summer; it must be shady and glorious, but early spring was wonderful too. We also went up at night and had the most beautiful views of the entire stretch of river and the shops below; just idyllic.

A must visit spot for a panoramic view. I reached before sunrise and enjoyed the view of rising the sun with this view.

Great views. There's a swing set for children (and adults, let's be honest about how much we love swings) and giant chess boards. The baording seem to be taken up by teams of men playing an intense tournament but I'm sure they would let you play, if you asked. The views can't be beat. Exit by the back side by, the swings for a nice neighborhood stroll.

It's really a nice place to chill out and enjoy the amazing view over all Zurich. The park is small but enough possibilities to have a seat and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere there. Depending on the weather and time it could be sometimes a bit crowded If this report was useful for you please let me know and mark it as such Thank you :-)

Little park near the larger Lindenhof square. Good benches for parents to survey their offspring from, plus public toilets if you are ever caught short. Not the cleanest in Zurich but decent enough in an emergency. On the place smells of pot and there are groups of men hanging around smoking but nothing too off putting and they've always been lovely to my daughter and I.

A park at the top of a hill in the middle of Zürich offering relaxing, scenic views. It’s a short, but steep climb to the top. It’ll require a few stairs or steep pathway. At the top, the park is usually filled with those looking for a good view, especially on the side of the park overlooking the city. There are also a couple fountains and some information panels discussing the city and area. I would recommend the trip to the top if you’re in the area.

Lovely viewpoint overlooking the river and the old town. Lots of places to sit. The wall is very wide and a great place to perch and soak it up. Easy walk up there and well worth the view! Lots of shade up there as well for the hot days!

Nice relaxing place to come and take a break from the city. Nice views over the old town and river. Several benches for sitting and a water fountain. Also a couple of outdoor chess boards where people gather to watch the players compete with each other.

One of the best spots for tourists to have a view over the city of Zurich. Most landmarks, the old town and the Limmat are visible from this viewpoint. In summer there will be several festivals on this location. Very easily accessible by walking from the main station and old city.

You can see the full view of the city from here. It’s a nice and relaxing place with many trees so even in the summer when it’s hot it’s nice and shaded. Definitely recommend anyone to come here!
