Descent to the Core

The Lindenhof is the oldest core of the city, a moraine hill and an idyllic public square. The hilltop area, including its prehistoric, Roman, and medieval remains, sits atop the remains of theĀ last glacial period, is great for strolling around, with its pretty view over the Limmat and on sunny days you can join in a pleasant game of chess at the back of the square.
