This panorama was taken from the top of the fortificantion on Lindenhof hill in the Lindenhof historic quarter in Zurich, Switzerland. It shows the beautiful view this little park provides of Zurich, including the Grossmünster church, the rathaus (city hall), and the quai with historical Guild houses along the Limat river.
The park itself in which the panorama was taken is also very wortwhile including the Hedwig Fountain from 1688 which recalls the legend of the siege of Zurich in 1292 by Duke Albert I of Habsburg, which can be seen on this panorama. You can also see the 1851 Masonic Lodge 'Modestia cum Libertate', the orange building on the square.
In the early 21st century, it serves as a recreational space, a green oasis, and automobile free space in the old historic city center. Its elevated position makes it a favorite point for tourists to get an overview of the geography of old Zürich.(from wikipedia article about Lindenhof)-
