Schanzengraben - Review
The town was braced with a city divider from the thirteenth to the seventeenth century, and with additional expound defenses developed in the seventeenth to eighteenth century and generally crushed in the 1830s to 1870s. There had been a first city divider dating to the eleventh or twelfth century.
The being of such an early divider had been proposed, yet the standard perspective expected that the town had been unfortified which was the stays of the roman stronghold and a purported Kaiserpfalz on Lindenhof mound. Soon after the thirteenth century, until the chance finding of remainders of the first divider throughout the 1990s development work at the focal library following the eradication of the principle line of the Zähringer family in 1218, Zurich turned into a free royal city.
Over the accompanying decades, a city divider was built in excess of a length of nearly 2,400m from 1642, an amazing set of defenses was based on arrangements by Hans Georg Werdmüller and Johann Ardüser, at an enormous expense and finished just in the second 50% of the eighteenth century. The defenses incorporated fifteen bastions, one of them assembled within the Liamat River.
- Remains of the fortifications are visible in numerous locations within the city.

Schanzengraben, Zurich Reviews
Relatively quiet place in the city. Perfect to stroll along the water enjoying nature.
Der Schanzengraben ist zwar der kleinste Fluss in Zürich, doch einer mit anmutigen Spazierwegen. An manchen Stellen kann man auch gut verweilen, eine Zeitung oder ein Buch aufschlagen und die Atmosphäre und Ruhe geniessen. Als Kind war ich auch öfters mal im Flussbad, das angenehme Abkühlung bot.
