Lindenhof Square

Historical centre par excellence

It is incredible that this enclave was once the epicentre of the city's activity, considering the peaceful and tranquil atmosphere you find in Lindenhof Square nowadays. And that's not all, this place has also been the exceptional protagonist in numerous historic battles and incidents in Zurich, since it was the place chosen to build a castle during the 4th century for defending the Roman borders from German attacks. Later, during the 9th century, the emperor Charlemagne decided to build his royal residence here which resulted in an epicentre for meetings and demonstrations with the residents since then. It is with good reason that the oath for the Helvetic Constitution was read at Lindenhof Square in 1798. Now, since it's flanked by Zurich Cathedral, the Limmat River and the city's university, Lindenhof Square makes the perfect location to relax and observe the landscape.
