Exciting Place!

I have visited Bellevue a number of times and it is always exciting to go there. The people, the food and sights make the place a must see when in Zurich.

This is a nice square facing the lake and the opera house. It was recently revamped and it is now offering a big pedestrian area where you can find even chairs to sit. Before Christmas, in the Advent time, it is the place of a nice Christmas market. The traffic and the tram are sometimes disturbing this nice square.

There are a couple of nice buildings and a good Globus store around Bellevue but it's dominated by the tram station, at which several different lines intersect. Yes, it's next to where the Limmat flows out of the Zürichsee, so in summer the view from the water's edge can be stunning, but it's even better from the other side of... More

Not sure how the square usually is, but Christmas season means Christmas Markets and let me tell you something: the main square of Zurich sure hosts an amazing one! Over 100 stalls (many selling affordable and tasty food from around the world.. including of course Swiss Fondue in charming Chalets, on-the-go Raclette, yummy wagyu beef sandwiches, crispy Peruvian arepas, Shangai-style...

It's just an intersection. Absolutely nothing spectacular or out of ordinary. I fail to understand why would be this area be marked as a place of interest.

The square is nice in summer if you have a work break - for a tourist, it is probably of specific interest during Sechse Leute when it is the festival where the summer's arrival is predicted and showcase a bit of the Swiss heritage, and a "snow man" is being blown up to extinguish winter - lots of fun for...

A great place to sit out and watch the world go by - get a drink from the cafe or any of the nearby outlets. The chairs come in pairs and are linked together - so take your pick and move around to where you want to be. The new water feature looks good as well.

Lovely square by the lake with great seating areas and view. Situated near of Opera and trams have few cafes. Shops and restaurants of all varieties around to experience as well. Specially recommended for summer season, when you could enjoy open air events, drinks or picnic with a great view of the lake, the city and mountains in the distance.... More
