Schipfe is a residential district in Zürich (Switzerland) located on the eastern slope of the Lindenhof, one of the oldest parts of the Helvetii Oppidum Zürich-Lindenhof, by the river Limmat. Historians and the Weinplatz suggest that the district was part of the former civilian harbour of the Celtic-Roman Turicum.LocationSchipfe belongs to the historic area on the left hand shore of the Limmat, located on the west side of the Lindenhof-Sihlbühl hill downstream from the ancient bridges Münsterbrücke and Rathausbrücke Zürich between the present Limmatquai and the prehistoric Lindenhof hill.HistoryThe Lindenhof was the site of the Helvetii Oppidum and the first century BC Roman settlement (15 BC), with traces of a hypocaustum excavated between Weinplatz and Münsterhof. It was then the historical core of modern Zürich. This is the oldest area of the city, with settlements dating to the pre-Roman La Tène culture, and fortified as oppidum with a surrounding Vicus Turicum in the final decades of the 1st century BC.
