  Schwamendingenplatz with sticky rains

There's hardly any 'tourist attraction' (or at least I didn't notice one) in this square far from the city centre, but we liked its comparatively small yet vibrant multi-ethnic community on daily walks, its small market with 'real' cheese and vegetables sold by farmers, its choice of small and appealing restaurants (see the tip for Thai one) and shops in the area.
Quite a pleasant district, far from being crowded as anywhere downtown of course.

Nice place to break your tram journey here if you wander to 'unknown' district as we did one day - the weather was perfect for this; most easy to reach by tram no. 9 directly from center of Zurich (and tram no. 7 plus few buses).

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
