Bürkliplatz is known for its flee market mainly. It’s the souvenir hunters and antiques dealers that flock here in search of lost treasures. But that’s not all this hub of Zurich lifestyles has in store for you. Bürkliplatz is also the starting point for the Zurich CityRunning event and it’s the place for florists who present their colourful varieties of plants every Tuesday.
During winter time, Bürkliplatz is the venue of candle-makers and right behind it you find Lake Zurich and Bellevueplatz, the very centre of Zurich. And have you seen the UFO there? UFO? Yes, in the middle of the tram tracks there is a flying saucer, once a tram shelter, but now an Italian café. Zurich is different, after all. At the café they serve you espresso already at five in the morning, and if you are still not sure what time it is, ask the Lake Zurich flower clock.
