  • The Lindenhof occupies a special position as actual historical nucleus and oldest public garden in Zürich. Central Hills location and the shady tree umbrella, he offers a high quality and a magnificent view of the old town. From here, there are the best photos of the Grossmünster. You can see a Roman stone plaque from the 2nd century at the main entrance to the Lindenhof. The Board is dated with the text "STAtionis TURICensis2". Turicum was the name of Zurich to Roman times. Zürich Turicum was a Roman customs station in the 2nd century.
