As in the title, nice view of Zurich from an elevated angle. The view is okay, not exceptional and definitely not a standout place in Europe. But worth finding.

This square is fine, especially because of the magnificent views of Zurich below. Take some time to sit and appreciate the river bank with its cable cars and buildings, people strolling and life going by just below.

The surrounding wall at the top of the hill gives you an amazing view. There is also the story of this old Roman fort there! It’s a great walk through the city to get there. Shops and restaurants... enjoy it.
