Bellevue square is the square beside the Sechselautenplatz, is dominated by the tram station and from here begin the bellevue promenade on the lake.
Many reviewers wrote that the Bellevue Square is dominated by Opera House not knowing that the Opera House is in Sechselautenplatz

The most happening place in all of Zurich. This place is located right on the heart of the city and was simply a treat to the eye at night. We stopped here for a quick photo session on our way back to hotel in our tour bus. The place was amazingly lit and had a row of pubs and restaurants with enthusiastic youths enjoying a summer evening. The opera house looked beautifule from here.

Nice square right in the middle of a large city

With the Opera House to the side and sitting right next to the Lake, the square is in a beautiful setting. It is also where a lot of the restaurants and nightlife is happening, so it is a good start for an evening out in Zurich. The square itself is nice, and you can set by the lake and just enjoy the view, which almost makes you forget that you are in the middle of a large city.

Nice square

The Zurich film festival was in full swing when we visited, so the square was buzzing and happy. By the lake, lots of transport options here and the opera house is lovely.

Bellevue Square in Zurich is easily accessible by public transportation. It is quite impressive and located in front of the Opera House. It is a great place for clicking pics. Certainly recommend visiting same.

In front of the Opera House.

Once passing over Quaibrucke, you enter a transportation hub, an intersection of many trams that take you in many directions on the east side of Limmat and Lake Zurich. To the south of this is a large open square, Bellevue Square. Not much in the way of beauty except that it is the prelude to the gorgeous Opera House. Can walk over the bridge or take a tram. Wheelchair accessible.

Traffic hub next to the lake

This platz is on the eastern side of the lake. From here you can take trams (or bus) in all directions, among other to Zurichhorn (Pavillon Corbusier), the Dolderbahn or Kunsthaus Zurich. Moreover, this platz is a starting point for walks along the lake or the river Limmat.

Centrally located square

I have passed by occasionally but hadn't thought of stopping here, as very busy and not really inviting.

A busy lakeside square close to the Operahaus
Jun 2019 • Friends
This vast open air plaza was teeming with families enjoying a beautifully warm Sunday, it seemed that all of Zurich had decided to visit!

In Zurich, most restaurants, all businesses and shops are closed on Sundays so it is a time for families and friends. It reminded me of growing up in London when my parents would take me to the park, feed the ducks and generally have fun. In those days, Sunday was literally a day of rest and it is refreshing to see that in Zurich has maintained that tradition. The only place, where shops are legally allowed to open on Sunday’s is the Hauptbanhof, main station, where the Coop supermarket is popular.

Bellevue square is popular not only as a meeting place, but for occasional, live transmissions from the Opera house of ballet or opera, and then, most importantly the Christmas markets that fill the square. During Summer months it is a delightful place to sit and relax after enjoying a walk along the lakeside.
