Climb up to Lindenhofplatz, a quiet park overlooking the city's charming old town. The park draws local chess players to compete against one another amidst large, leafy trees. From your vantage point in the square, take in views of the old town and Limmat River, as well as historical buildings such as Grossmunster Church and city hall. Descend from the park via stone steps leading to the old town to explore little shops tucked cozily into narrow lanes.
