  • A zigzag canal that repeats the contours of the old fortress wall of the city. Actually it is a part of the old fortified structures - a moat in front of the old fortified wall. It is occasionally still preserved, visible in front of the ditch. It is much quieter than on other embankments of the city. There is no crowd of tourists. Be quiet. A lot of locals jogging along the canal, a lot of benches, places to relax. Under the sun warm good old ladies and old ladies. There are beautiful footpaths and bike paths everywhere. It's cozy, it's great.

  • A walk from Löwenplatz to Lake Zurich along the Schanzengraben canal gives very nice impressions of the slightly different Zurich
