The Lindenhof is located in the old town of Zurich and is the chronicled site of the Roman manor, and the later Carolingian Kaiserpfalz. In 1747, a second century Roman gravestone was uncovered at the site, bearing the eldest authentication of Turicum.

The palace remained sound throughout the early stage of Alemannic movement in the fifth to sixth century, yet was forsaken by the ninth century, when it was remade as a home for Louis the German, which in turn got broken down and utilized as a wellspring of building stone by the thirteenth century.

The Lindenhof remained a position of civil gathering into current times. In 1798, the subjects of Zurich swore the pledge to the constitution of the Helvetic Republic on the Lindenhof. In the early 21st century, it serves as a recreational space, a green desert spring, and vehicles free space in the old notable downtown area. Its hoisted position makes it a most beloved focus for travelers to get a review of the geology of olden times.

  • Lindenhof is a fairly large square. It's also one of the highest points in the old city of Zurich. From here you can take advantage of the great views to catch a glimpse of other great sites in the city. I'd recommend starting your site seeing of Zurich here, because you can see most of the churches, the lake and the river from here.

  • It's built on the fundaments of a former Roman fort, of which you can still see some remains. Very nice view from up there, usually pretty crowded. Seems to be a popular place for teens in the evening. There is also a public toilet close-by.

  • Lovely space... Apparently known locally as the spy garden because of its use as a meeting place in the cold war! Nice views of the river.

  • Definitely worth the walk up the hill. There are some good veiws of the river below, and also some good eateries/cafes around.

  • A great little park in the centre of Zurich, has perfect views of the Grossmunster, the river and the university side of the city.
