Wonderful lake and mountain views!

Well worth a trip on the lake, we took the 1 hour option on the quicker vessel. Bar on board and audio guide. Would board on the old town side of lake rather than the Bahnhof side... read more

One of the beautiful lakes in Switzerland - I ran along the lake in the morning and was mesmerized by the view. Definitely worth a walk along the promenade!

Lots of tourists. I enjoyed getting away from the crowds to explore the walkways around the lake. Very relaxing and beautiful. I prefer Lake Geneva but this is also high on my list.
