Towering above Altstadt (the old town), Lindenhof is a pleasant park with panoramic views of the city. It is the site of the Roman castrum of Turicum, the name of Zürich in Roman times. The castrum was probably built by the 2nd century AD, but was replaced in mediaeval times by a Carolingian imperial residence for Ludwig der Deutsche (Louis the German). By the 13th century, the ruins were used as a quarry for other construction. Lindenhof gave its name to the western half of Old Zurich.
