Done with ferry-boat and limmat cruises. A splendid image of the city, beautiful houses at lake, and with amazing weather is cherry on top! I love this city! I recommend to everyone to do both cruises!

Especially in spring and summer, the view from Zurich on the long and smart lake of Zurich is wonderful. You'll have the blue lake in the foreground, the white snowy mountains (over 3000 meters) in the very far background and again the blue sky. Try to do a trip with one of the old paddle steamers to Rapperswil: unforgettable!

The Swiss love the lake as it is a great area on which to sail. As a tourist you can partake in one of the many cruises on the lake and see why the Swiss are good sailors. Lovely walks can be taken along the shoreline.

Very pleasant 1 hour on the very calling at four terminals on one side of the Lake, before getting off in Kuesnacht for lunch in the lakeside garden in front of the hotel. A great way to see the greater metropolis of Zurich

my hometown lake, but still a joy every day. you can take a small boatride with the regular city transport ticket (tramways and buses) from the railway station to the beginning of the lake (a whole tour takes some less then one hour), or you can take one of the bigger boats from Bürkliplatz to make it all along the...

Languid, gentle, large lake. Take a ferry ride around. The hotel is small but extremely well done, classy, very comfortable rooms always at Hotel Helmhaus. Walk to a ferry ride, famous churches, great museums and walk to dinner.

Cycled around lake Zürich with the free bikes available in Zurich town. It is far but a beautiful ride. Is you are looking for free activities to do in Zürich this is an option. Suggest you make it a day trip to stop at various sites / towns around the lake

If you only have one day in Zurich, and you have some time to burn, take a trip to Lake Zurich. Its easiest to get there by tram. Beautiful lake for a stroll around and there are a number of boat trips you can take to experience the beauty of the lake and surrounding areas.

Zurich city by itself is very beautiful and has the mix of old age charm as well as modernity. It is a perfect blend and a cruise in lake Zurich makes you romantic and your feelings flow with the water around you. People are very affable and make you feel at home

walking is fun when the air is pure and a meal awaits you. The lake is picturesque and is flanked by such beautiful hills. Tranquil and magnetic, it is what makes the city what it is..
