    "Lindenhof Hill, 428 meters above sea level, and the relative height of Limat River 25 meters. Under the lush Bodhi tree, a sculpture, a pool of clear springs, a huge chess board, more than ten benches, and many tourists make up the whole park. In the picturesque country, at best, it is a civic square. The hill is not so much a park as a tour, but a condescending view of the city of Zurich. Standing by the stone fence of the park, the clear Limat River flows at the foot, and the cathedral, city hall and Polytechnic University on the other side are in sight. The scenery is unique here!"
    Highlights: Lindenhof is located in the old town of Zurich, known as the "green lung" of Zurich. The park is located on a small hill. With the Limmat River as the foreground, you can enjoy a wonderful view of Zurich, which is the ideal place to enjoy the view of the Zurich Cathedral and the right bank of the Limmat River. Lindenhof was once a customs place in ancient Roman times, and was later built as a fortress that could monitor the surrounding riverbanks, and people at that time would also gather here to express their opinions. Today, the unique park and hills on this side of the landscape are popular resting places for citizens. Lindenhof is also a good place to climb and look into the distance. At the top of the mountain, you can have a panoramic view of the city hall, the Limmat River, and the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich.
