Sechselautenplatz, Zurich

(25+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Sechseläutenplatz is the largest town square situated in Zürich, Switzerland. Its name derives from the Sechseläuten, which is celebrated on the square in April.GeographySechseläutenplatz is located on the east shore of Lake Zurich, just south of the lake's outflow to the river Limmat and the Schanzengraben moat. The plaza is bounded to the south by the linked Opernhaus and Bernhardtheater buildings; to the west by the Utoquai lakeside promenade; and to the east by Theaterstrasse, across which is Stadelhoferplatz, with the Stadelhofen railway station and the terminus of the Forchbahn (FOB). To the north, Sechseläutenplatz merges into Bellevueplatz, where stops for the Zürich tram lines 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11 and 15 are located.On November 30, 2011, the government of Zürich announced that some streets would be renamed by redesigning the public area at Sechseläutenplatz. Theaterplatz will be part of the Sechseläutenplatz area, and Gottfried-Keller-Strasse and Goethestrasse partially repealed. Residents have been informed that these will be addressed as Sechseläutenplatz 1 to 10. In all, Sechseläutenplatz covers an area of about 16000m2.
Sechselautenplatz is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Zurich Edition.
