The square connects the nearby commercial centre in the north via a stretched city park with the large landscape park. A generous "City Balcony" with an elevated sitting wall opens the view over the city park area towards the Alps. The lively shopping centre and the calm walls of the church form the frame. Its pine trees with a light roof of leaves, which naturally creates a distinct and relaxed atmosphere, define the actual square. A "stretch of nature" is implemented within the New City. Wooden sitting blocks invite people to rest in the shade of the trees. The square offers room for different social activities - it serves as a meeting point for the surrounding quarters.
