Sechselautenplatz, Zurich

(3.8/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
Sechseläutenplatz is a town square situated in Zürich, Switzerland and is the largest one within the city. It takes its name from the Sechseläuten, the city's traditional spring holiday which is celebrated on the square in early April.GeographySechseläutenplatz is located on the Lake Zurich shore just to the south of the point where the lake flows out into the 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, and to the east by Theaterstrasse. Stadelhoferplatz, with the Stadelhofen railway station and the terminus of the Forchbahn (FOB), lies immediately across Theaterstrasse. To the north, Sechseläutenplatz merges into Bellevueplatz, with its stops for the Zürich tram lines 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11 and 15.On November 30, 2011, the government of Zürich announced that some streets will be renamed by redesigning the public area at Sechseläutenplatz. Theaterplatz will be part of the Sechseläutenplatz area, Gottfried-Keller-Strasse and Goethestrasse partially repealed. The residents have been informed that they 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.

  • I think that the best time to visit both the Christmas one: wooden houses where he sells everything, especially many of the eateries, a nice rink and especially many people since its opening in the morning.

  • A large square on the one hand crowned with a contrasting construction and by the majestic Lake on the other. You're going to entertain a while in this place.

  • On the square in front of the Opera House, a beautiful, very lovely, spacious Christmas market expected one. Many small different intercultural dining booths and nice stalls expect one. Everywhere are all in the Chalet-style, shelters with seating and standing. There is also a skating rink on the market, which is open until 22.00. Clear recommendation. Worth a visit especially in the evening.
