Although it's a bit out of the way, it's worth discovering this beautiful boulevard.
Walks with nice views
Located at one end of Zurich, Schanzengraben is located halfway between a boulevard, a park, and a district. Discovering this area is essential if you want to know the city's history, as it served as a military reference point for the Roman Empire's defence against enemy attacks, as well as an industrial centre, whereas nowadays it's an idyllic area where time just seems to stop. An important restoration project was carried out between 1952 and 1984 which allowed the place to be reinaugurated as a beautiful boulevard that the residents are very proud of. Schanzengraben is a pedestrian area and it runs along next to the river and beside the canals, which is why it was built in a highly recommended enclave for walking along, and to see the historic centre from another point of view. There is usually a lively atmosphere to be enjoyed in certain parts of Schanzengraben.
